Holiday

What is helping you grade tonight? What is helping you not daydream about going to the hot springs over spring break? What is helping you to say: “your conclusion is not encore enough” or: “your introduction is too many hooks, and not enough fish”. I am listening to this song, and drinking a cup of tea. I am painting my toe nails plum. Earlier I tried on two blouses, touched my jade plant and looked up a synonym for “entertaining”. 

I’m so stoked to be a part of the Factory Hollow Press & Flying Object offsite AWP reading While We Are Here Reading happening tomorrow night. I’m going to be reading alongside of these really incredible people: 
Luke BloomfieldKevin GonzálezLesle LewisJulia JohnsonFrances McCueCaryl PagelBen Pease& Michelle Taransky 
at Porchlight Coffee & Records in Seattle, WA at 7pm. Come see us do the wave with reading poems. We won’t be as loud as the 12th man, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be seismic.

A NEW OCTOPUS BOOKS WEBSITE!
At this dawn of AWP, I wanted to share with you that our Octopus Books website has been completely updated thanks to Travis Meyer and his First Letter + Company. Please check it out, look around, see what is new, maybe buy a book. Also, at our AWP table, you’ll be able to check out a few new things in person: new full-length books by Bianca Stone and Emily Kendal Frey, a chapbook by Wong May in anticipation of her forthcoming full-length book, new Octopus Books tshirts, and the rest of our catalog and Poor Claudia’s.

from The Secret Lives of Deer by Amy Lawless

"The wolf understands and responds to this passion—probably on her back. Jupiter allows this trouble to unfold like a letter inside an envelope inside another envelope inside a bubble mailer. You’ve heard of ‘rock, paper, scissors’? But this is more like paper, paper, paper"
