Takin' it to the streets.

The Colt and I are having a lot of fun with our service learning project. But yesterday we did a creative writing class demo for some jr high kids who were so like not into it and whatever. Apparently writing haiku at 9:45 am is like totally uncool and way too hard, yo.

This picture combines my two loves: teaching, and snarling. Now write that damn haiku!

Sara has some really good news. I know what it is, too. It's really good!

Barn Owl Review is now available at Mac's Backs in Coventry. Yay! We're also planning a reading there for local BOR contributors. More info on that, and our release party at Bela Dubby's, coming soon.

Agonizing over choosing ten pages of poetry for the NEA grant, now that I've figured out the bloody form. Any suggestions?

A real haiku:

winter morning:
the tops of trees
reaching the clouds

A better senryu:

In the highness of
my el camino, there is
no word for loser

Take on May

It's the first day of finals week and I already have that loopy off-my-routine feeling. Waiting for things to grade, and when those ...
