Sill


1. "Timing machine.
Reminds the dark room."



2. "Heavy ball. Wait.
It holds down the line. Slavery."



3. "Animal replica. It wants a friend.
A bird that walks but can't sing."



4. "Porcupine star. It's a sharp flower.
By the handle."



4. "Songs of. Comes with you.
Songs on their own. It says singles."



5. "Tin piercer, opener. Triangle.
Vote for the Rheingold girl."



7. "Tree seed. It falls,
buries itself. Calls it pine comb."



8. "Finger circle. It says yes, says no.
A day. It's like a crown."

14 sentences:

It's something that feels like time but--it's not really space either. It's presence. I guess that's what I mean by getting in control of it: just being there. I like the distortions and haloes, etc. Ordinary places and things. But what do you want from your book? What's your goal? Just hand over the info and you won't get hurt. "I don't like posturing--and I don't like avoiding posturing either." Good night to fall back. He asked K what her relationship to despair was and she said "sisterly." Events in my life--luck--caused us to grow apart. We're still in touch--and I still see myself in her. I take your responses to mean, as we say around here, "Leave it out, Voltaire, I'm starving."

I'll be reading at the KGB Bar in Manhattan tomorrow night (Saturday, October 28) at 7 pm. Maybe I'll see you there?

The reading is a Konundrum Engine Literary Review event, featuring five poets whose work has been in the journal.

The festivities will be hosted by KELR poetry editors Rachel Moritz and Juliet Patterson. (Rachel's chap The Winchester Monologues was the 2005 New Michigan Press chapbook contest winner; Juliet's book The Truant Lover was chosen by Jean Valentine as the winner of the first Nightboat Books prize--she's in the midst of a Northeast tour.)

I'm excited to be reading with Matt Henriksen, Henry Israeli, Stacy Szymaszek, and Mark Yakich.

Matthew Henriksen co-edits Typo and Cannibal and co-curates The Burning Chair Readings in Brooklyn. horse less press recently published his first chapbook, Is Holy.

Stacy Szymaszek is the author of Emptied of All Ships (Litmus Press), Pasolini Poems (Cy Press), Mutual Aid (gong press), and There Were Hostilities (single press). Sections from her long poem "hyper glossia" have appeared as a chapbook from belladonna* books. She curates the Monday Night Reading Series at The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church in New York where she also serves as Program Coordinator.

Henry Israeli's books include New Messiahs (Four Way Books) and Fresco: the Selected Poetry of Luljeta Lleshanaku (which he edited and co-translated, from New Directions). He is the founder of Saturnalia Books and the Literary Editor of Dragonfire.

Mark Yakich is the author of Unrelated Individuals Forming a Group Waiting to Cross (National Poetry Series, Penguin) and The Making of Collateral Beauty (Snowbound Chapbook Award, Tupelo Press). Dig his site.

KGB Bar is at 85 E. 4th St. (between 2nd and 3rd Ave.) in New York City. Take the 6 train to Bleeker St. station or the F to Lower East Side 2nd Ave.

Yeah, that's Malkovich as Teddy KGB in Rounders.

KGB's tell with the oreo cookies, especially when he listens to the oreo separating--doesn't it bring to mind how poets are always listening for their poems?

You know, keeping an ear out for that sound in the language that is flowing by us all day long.

Sure.

So yeah, everybody keeps asking (clamoring!): "Where can I get your first book, case sensitive?"

case closed

Well, you can buy one from Max when you come to hear me read. Look for a man with a worn train case. 17 copies can fit in there, snugly. (We began with a modest hope: to sell four. Now we've graduated to a goal more grand: to return from a reading with an empty case. So far, our per-gig record is 11 sold. You can help.)

case re-opened

But you needn't wait until The case sensitive Tour comes to your town. cs is also available at SPD, at Amazon, or directly from Ahsahta Press (much preferred! please support my publisher).

Pegasus Books

Or there's your local bookseller. You might even live in a place with a bookstore cool enough to have case sensitive in stock. If not, you could special order a couple of copies then decide you need one less than you've ordered so that one remains on the shelf for some other browser to find--how thoughtful you are!  *

top shelf

Speaking of, I got a thoughtful fan letter last week from someone who bought case sensitive at Pegasus Books in Berkeley (note his photographic evidence). Among his entertaining observations (and what endeared him to me most) was the comment that he liked my inclusion of footnotes and wished I had used even more of them. Vindication is sweet! Thank you, dear reader.

what you're looking for

ps: But is it wrong to suggest that people order one more book than they will actually take home? Any booksellers out there want to give me an opinion on that?

* Booksellers say it is wrong. And booksellers are our friends.
