I feel like I have been busy but I suspect that isn’t true. My standard response currently is ‘I am at my parents’ farm, packing.’ One half of that is right. However, I have been getting some exciting things.
First of all, many thanks to Helen Vitoria at Thrush Press, because you can now purchase a very very lovely broadside of my poem ‘NOLA.’ It is so pretty and I am so excited to give them to unsuspecting strangers who probably aren’t as pleased about it.
Otherwise, I am reading at Salt Plus tomorrow, the FB event is here. Lots of other excellent people are reading and it begins a week of sad goodbyes and minor panic attacks, because after this trip it is back to the farm to really, really pack.
In the future, red lightbulbs have taken a few poems for their tenth issue, so thanks Russ! It’s been pretty great to get back to writing properly, and these are a couple of odd prose poems, so things do get mixed.
Also, ILK is still reading for its ALL WOMEN ALL THE TIME ISSUE, so submit away ladies!
P.S. This is a real grasssnake that I saw at home yesterday. Even though they can’t hurt you I was still pretty terrified. Snakes are scary.
