Storm Soaked Bread and CAConrad June 20, 2012: Tom Trudgeon at HTMLGIANT reviews CAConrad's Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon! "You also see the exercise make the poem." That's about right. More: Suddenly is a speed – in as much as it awakens us to see a constancy we’ve stepped out from. This is in large part what I suppose we all look for in literature or art of any sort.

Starting in on Marina’s question December 31, 2009: I just heard someone say about another someone that “she likes to date guys who wear ironic hats.” I prefer unplanned irony, personally speaking, which is another way of saying I don’t pay any attention to the matter unless someone like Rudy Giuliani has the accidental nerve to publicly state “If I can make it, it’s not art.” Back [...] by
