I wrote a poemy thing for Shawn Misener & Ke$ha in hopes that the two will one day reconcile their differences & finally come together to record an album of Whitesnake & CCR songs in the key of Michigan major. It’s so cold in the D sometimes. It’s much warmer at Clutching at Straws.

NAP feels like home to me. I want to invite you to my home, where we can download, print, & assemble my newest micro chapbook, THE NAME IS SUGAR. I might be talked printing a few & sending to interested parties for free. Maybe I could draw funny things on them. Who knows? Who is with me?
I have a poem in Issue #1 of 1/25. If you haven’t checked this new lit journal out, you should. It’s a print affair—lean, meticulously crafted, & limited to 25 copies per issue. I’m in Issue #0 (the preview issue) as well.Get them both & take them to the park. Read them to the ducks. The ducks know what’s good. Believe that.
Meg Tuite & the Connotation-Press An Online-Artifact were kind enough to make me their mid-month fiction feature with five pieces & an interview. I tell the whole internet things like, “In the winter, people look at me like I have just pulled down my pants & my dick is made of spiders because ‘iced tea in the winter?’” & “Mostly I poke the dirt with a stick & wait for it to move.” All true. Come hang!
I Poemed the News over at CBS Chicago again this week. Heartfelt thanks and platonic, baseball-style butt-smacks to the Mason Johnson. See also: Russ Woods, J. Bradley, Cassandra Gillig. Yes, yes.
