Day 7: New York / Earshot
I drove across New York.
Day 8: New York / Pete’s Candy Store
Somehow I made it to an interview I did with Tim over labneh and eggs. The interview unwound over three hours and ended in a neck massage in the park. We talked about excess, seduction, and transgression in Tim’s poetry. Tim asked me about all the genitals in my poems. The hotdog returned in imperative form.
I got to dinner with Laura late. Dinner was too short but there is always next time I guess. Either way, she told me about the KSW Writing Collective and hopefully that is a start into something for me.
Poems got read at Pete’s Candy Store with COA and Jessica F, who I went to elementary school with. She read a great poem about whalefalls. I have written some bad poems about whalefalls. We might try to write a poem together about whalefalls.
I also met Joost after the reading. He would let the fine people of the Netherlands know about what was going on on the blog Oote Oote.
Day 9: Boston / COA Interview
It is really important you know how good Forty-One Jane Does is.
