A Good Attitude, a Review, and a Proto-Regisnation

Hi-ho, internet friends. I have a new poetry pamphlet available from the inestimable Flying Object. It's called A Good Attitude, it's about emotions, bodies, and control, and you can buy it for $5. Huzzah!



* * *


Here is an awesome review of My Resignation from Michaela Cowgill. I am having a Sally Fields moment over this. "You like me! You really like me!"

Aw shucks and blushes and thanks!

* * *


Speaking of My Resignation, before it had that title, it was called Moving Day, and I bound one copy of it as a Christman present to my then-fiance, now-husband. Here are some images of the hand-bound copy, along with a couple of poems that don't appear in the final, published book.

And one last bit of news. I'm going to be the "house reader" for the new season of the Ruthless Grip reading series here in DC. You can sign up to get emails about upcoming readings at DCPoetry.com.

NaPoWriMo 13-15

I got kind of busy, and therefore behind on NaPoWriMo. But last night I received a big illustrated book about seashells, and now you get these goofy seashell catch-up poems.

Small Poem for Large Shell

Where men are native
with this foot-long conch,
they dip its rosy-yellow,
lacquered throat
and tip it out again,
to bail their boats.

Small Poem for Small Shell

The ittibittium’s
the smallest shell,
so-called because
our scientists are silly,

and given scope
to christen it,
went for punch
above dignity.

Small Poem for Ridiculous Shell

It is called “the strawberry top.”
It is a sea snail’s house.
It’s pearly with nacre inside
and pink with pinkness without.

April Comes Down Like a Wolf on the Fold

It's April 1. And that means that (no fooling) there is a new issue of Open Letters Monthly, featuring poems by Jennifer H. Fortin and Kim Roberts, a review by yours truly of new books by Melissa Broder and Sara Nicholson, a listicle of books that "might be poetry" by Elisa Gabbert, and much, much more!

And also . . . it's the first day of NaPoWriMo. Here's my first poem, inspired, per the prompt for Day 1, by a fragment generated by Reb Livingston's Bibliomancy Oracle:
