The Clean Part Reading Series
Zach may not have mentioned it but I beat him in chess again Sunday night. I'm undefeated.
Discussing Kevin Young's Jelly Roll in my intro to poetry writin' class today. It's good timing with V-Day, I forgot how much booty is in that book. When I chose it for class and reread it I was thinking of how it engages traditions in a different way that received forms do. It somehow didn't strike me that the first third of the book is mostly sex poems. Should be fun.
Joey Lynch is a damn fine artist & makes a mean t-shirt. Check these out. We'll be selling them at The Clean Part Readings for $5 but if you want one and you won't be there contact me or Zach and we'll get you dressed all nice.
Getting all ready for The Clean Part, sending out emails, prepping. Very, very excited.
