Results, jazz, results

No dice on the Washington Square Summer 2007 Poetry Prize (although it's nice to be a finalist). Likewise on a Colorado Review submission. Cue up that Charlie Brown Christmas "Christmastime Is Here" jazz track used to such uproarious "woe-is-me" effect in Arrested Development. Just joking.


Wynton Marsalis Septet, Blue Interlude. It's a concept disc about an extended love affair. Here's Wynton himself explaining it: "It's about two people becoming one - very delicious - slice of spirit."


Wrote a poem this AM about a kid in college who, while brushing his teeth, leaned too hard on the sink fixture such that it, the sink fixture, broke away from the wall entirely, thereby unleashing this torrent of water into the bathroom. The rooms below the bathroom, unfortunately, belonged to two freshmen, and their material goods did not fare well in the deluge.


  • ...The rooms below the bathroom, unfortunately, belonged to two freshmen...

    I initially read that as fishermen, which made me wonder why they weren't better able to handle the flood...

  • Hey, that sounds like the college I went to! The bathroom fixtures were nearly antique, although trendy in a sort of antiquey sort of way.

  • Awards that you have received over the years are still in boxes and on display at 205. There are still places of honor, waiting for the next one.
