I have a new story up at wigleaf.

I have always loved wigleaf a lot so this makes me so happy, you know?

Also, they do this funny post card thing. I never used to read them, but Scott asked me to write one. I didn't know what to do so I went and read them all. Now I think I prefer them to the stories. You can read mine, if you want.

there is no truth in what the others say

why is your smile so pleading?
she shrugged

to talk to you.

he winced

are you in love with someone?
she thought for a moment
then answered

i don't know, are you?


shame on you then.

a conversation i just had with my mother on the phone

me: i have a new boyfriend

my mother: oh yeah? what is he like?

me: well, he is french and very kind to me. he writes books in france, that is how i met him, at a reading. the morning after i first met him he left me a copy of his book with a very loving note in it on my bed stand

my mother: well, i guess that's better than a twenty dollar bill

me: only a twenty, really mom?

my mother: sweetpea, don't flatter yourself

lying in bed with you feels a bit like my favorite book

i understand you
better when
you speak your
language rather
than mine
your eyes go so
wide when yo say
'pourquoi? pourquoi?'
it's amazing that you
love being alive so
very much
and you can't
understand why i
often don't
you must have had
a nice childhood with
nothing weighing on
most of my
favorite books and
some of my favorite
movies are about
depressed anglo-saxon
women living in paris
with men they
hardly know
and yes,
i have no desire
to see
the empire state
building either

oh i am feeling excitable

in the next few months i have four short books coming out. two are chapbooks, two are e-books. one will have supplemental drawings. one will have music accompanying it. one was written with another writer who is more culturally relevant than i am. one is a lot of poems that i feel very attached to. one is about a friend in indiana who i love very much.

this will be a good spring for me, i feel. i will keep you updated.
