I can’t watch this video, but it’s me about twenty pounds lighter since last year, though I was pretty thin to begin with. It seems my doc is coming close to a different diagnosis than last year’s, so stay tuned for an interesting update, particularly since the diagnosis might apply to your own G.I. / heart troubles.
Moreover, I finally made it to a recent reading, wearing the ghostly look. I also think I made some false utterances about writers I’ve read in the past but now misremember, and therefore, misrepresented. Maybe. The poems are primarily from two new manuscripts; the first one is forthcoming soon: SLAVES TO DO THESE THINGS and I WANT TO MAKE YOU SAFE. Ana Bozicevic also makes an appearance in the middle. Special thanks to Ian and Kimberly Wilder for inviting and hosting us!
