I’m working on this essay about crying in front of mirrors. Maybe it is more about documenting one’s crying, the ethics of this aesthetic consideration. It is also about nighttime and daytime and the visually impaired.
Heather Christle is writing a whole book about crying right now, and I am so excited to read it.
Do you cry, and subsequently, do you regard yr crying? Have you ever? What was it like?
Two new poems from Phrasis appear today in the PEN Poetry Series. Whatever they signal it must also be fall.
Very sweet and encouraging that a school of 33,000+ students has a little moment for an english major from 4 years ago. I loved my college experience. Thanks, Iowa.
Something new is that I recently moved (back) to New York, something I thought I’d never do, in fact I remember declaring it aloud on the street that it would never be done, but here I am enjoying the doing as the doing itself unfolds before me.
I also recently updated my upcoming readings page to reflect reality and some readings I am very excited about. For now they are all here in New York, my new old forgiving friend:
