Running A Small Press With Paul February 26, 2013: So, when we left off last time, I said I'd have one more story about how poetry & art in my life move around & through this bar. I mentioned a couple of posts ago that my friend Paul Coors is a bartender there. He & I have been working together for a long time now. We've worked on books & shows & exhibitions & readings [...] by

Floyd & Uyen Against ‘The World’ February 19, 2013: So, we're still at the Comet, perhaps thinking through an atmosphere that I described before, a dazzling sky of unknowable pleasures & speeds, losing control while also piloting wild dirigibles of affect & thought.

I encountered a recording of it first, & months went by before I found it on a page or on a screen. It was one of those situations where the phonotext (a lovely & useful coinage by Steve Evans) took [...] by

Sunflower Druid Time February 5, 2013: Hi everyone! It’s February now, which is not exactly my favorite month. I’m a lover of warm weather, a sun worshipper really, so the confluence of frigidity & darkness lays me low. There’s a clinical name for this, Seasonal Affective Disorder, which nets that tidy acronym SAD, a word that, typed up in all caps, takes on a [...] by
