just wanted to take a time out before dropping word on all kinds of good things coming up in my poetic life and let the dozens (and dozens!) of y’all that read this bad boy in on a lil something:
better than any reading i might be associated with, better than any poem i could write, is the love of a beautiful person. i have been pretty damn lucky to be surrounded by some of the most amazing friends and cantakerous yahoos ever but this woman right here takes my whole breath away.
barbara jane reyes, thank you for being in my life and for making orion appear in the sky.
