just found out there's a new documentary re Townes Van Zandt, a favorite musician. check out the post at this blog for more about the man and the movie. And click on title, above, for the movie's site, which has a trailer.
Seems it's showing in Nashville starting today, stopping on the 26th, in the Nashville Film Festival. Otherwise it may be bought. Might make a good graduation present for somebody.
When I’m older I write only once a week. The rest of the time I heal and drink juice cocktails and read and talk to people. This method seems to work for me and over time I even start to fart poems. The Corcoran asks me to do an exhibit of poems associated with infrared photographs of farts. I spend days matching poems to the right farts, finishing in just enough time to drive to Florida and see my great-uncle, my separated cousin, and her two babies.
A boy can be your boyfriend without actually being your boyfriend. On the way you stop to wander through Glen Echo Park. The ancient cries of fun echo and re-echo. Years later I remember holding your hand. My memory is unreliable.
Favorable notice in another paper. On the fire escape the man asked me if I had hyperthyroid condition. Offended, I insisted my thyroid was normal.
I realize that I have been as repressed in my poetry as I have been foolish in real life. When my writing goes well I attribute it to God. When I kissed you in the car I blamed myself. We were in the church for hours discussing our favorite cathedrals. There is always something I have not bothered to remember.
You are my secret best friend. I am a gas station attendant. When someone gives me a tip it is like I have done something great. I feel great as I pump gas.
one of the better-designed sites I've seen
must mention that haven't got the format right for blogger- I mean, the poem looks different as posted at octopus magazine number 07.
