STILL DIGESTING….

no one has guessed the title yet! i’m shocked and appalled! here’s a hint: wine and poetry reviews.

i hope everyone had a wonderful “thanksgiving” or “thankstaking” or “indigenous genocide day.” i spent the week at my parents’ house eating and watching movies and playing poker and shopping and eating. it was nice not to do ANY work for a few days. i feel a second wind now to finish my grad app. and other poetry related projects in the next few weeks (tho am not particularly looking forward to returning to work after a week off). I WANT TO KNOW WHAT WAS THE BEST THING YOU ATE THIS THANKSGIVING? mine was me mum’s stuffing. yum.

so i’ve been working on a chapbook which has now become a full-length collection titled: “the ghost of the harvest madonna: an allegory”. i’ve been quite obsessed with it recently, and i should be able to finish it tomorrow and then start sending selections from it for submission. it is my first attempt at prose poems that actually ended up being prose poems, so i am excited. and the poems are much different than any of my other work, so that is exciting also! ANY JOURNAL EDITORS OUT THERE INTERESTED IN A LOOK? let me know: jspirit_00 at hotmail dot com.

besides that, am finishing up a collaboration titled “origami shipwreck” with this crazy poet and we are sending out these poems to various journals as well…HEY, does anyone know any journals that specifically look for collaborations?

i am also wondering if anyone knows any journals that specifically focus on FLARF poems.

as far as reading goes, i have read three great books in a row:

School of Udhra, Mackey
A Drag Queen Named Pipi, Dan Taulapapa McMullin
2 poems, Jozuf Bradajo Hadley

all of which i highly recommend (the last two being Tinfish Chaps). Am currently reading Realuyo’s THE GODS WE WORSHIP LIVE NEXT DOOR and am almost completely taken by it. but we’ll see how it reads through. it seems like it is building momentum and the second half might have me completely.

ANYONE READ ANYTHING GREAT LATELY?

BONUS GAME: IF ANYONE CAN POINT OUT THE VARIOUS REFERENCES IN THIS SONG TO THANKSGIVNIG WILL GET A POINT (LISTEN CAREFULLY)! HOPE ALL ARE WELL 😉
