Things to Love in Summer '07 and Last Night's New Yipes


NEW YIPES
William Alexander's play was the headlining act at New Yipes last night. It was a little long, but if you like William Alexander, you'll love Conduction in the Catacombs.
I personally found David Enos very entertaining and would have stolen his book if there was one on the table.
The films were also quite fun.

Things to Love

  1. Chelsey Minnis's new book, BAD BAD
  2. The new poetry mag: Abraham Lincoln, ala Anne Boyer and K. Silem Mohammad
  3. David Larsen's new fully full half book: San Francisco Sound
  4. CA Conrad's Frank Poems
  5. Jack Morgan's new first book: Your
  6. Pegasus Downtown is still having readings.
  7. There is a lot more time to read and write.

I have, for example, read almost too much poetry. Last night, I reread Exobiology as Goddess (not all of it) just to revisit a little William Alexander. I was dreaming in big non sequitur terms.

I am walking down the street repeating "being with you is like" or "rocking the" from Minnis. I love Chelsey Minnis. I am reading her Zirconia again.

I will stop writing now before this becomes one of those weird reading diary blogs.

No one cares what I'm reading. I am unsure whether I care.

no one cares what you're writing either but I hope that doesn't stop you
