Geocachers: Smoke Fairies

We posted a new episode of Geocachers yesterday. This one has Sam going to Park Slope, which is full of rabid....families....and cafes, maybe a feral stroller or two....anyway, he goes there with the British duo Smoke Fairies, and they meet a tree that reminds me of Falcor. You won't agree with that, but I'm not concerned. It reminds me of Falcor.

Abraham Lincoln

This is me reading another "Abraham Lincoln" poem at the KGB Bar (where I read with teh awesome MC Hyland, Krystal Languell, and Rob Ostrom). This was published over at I Thought I Was New Here, in a slightly different form, back in June.

Speaking of I Thought I Was New Here, Brad Liening has four poems that just went up over there, and they are all quite excellent.

Selective Shampoo

I've got a couple poems in the new issue of Shampoo. They have little to do with shampoo or cleaning oneself's stink. However, my cat does smell at the moment. So, there's that.

This issue has some other good stuff worth reading too. There are poems from Ron Silliman, Paul Siegell, and a ton of other poets.

Group Activity Poems

I've just recently had a bunch of my Group Activity series of poems published in a few places. "15." is up at Right Hand Pointing, interrupture just published "19." and "22.", and the Minnetonka Review (who sadly just announced their final issue) just posted the poems from the issue I was in a little while back, which includes "14.", "10.0", and "5.".

I've been calling this series of poems Group Activity Poems, but they're part of a MS-in-progress I'm calling Activity, Group. But I only mention that because I found a great quote from Nabokov about group activities.

By nature I am no dramatist; I am not even a hack scenarist; but if I had given as much of myself to the stage or the screen as I have to the kind of writing which serves a triumphant life sentence between the covers of a book, I would have advocated and applied a system of total tyranny, directing the play or picture myself, choosing settings and costumes, terrorizing the actors, pervading the entire show with the will and art of one individual--for there is nothing in the world that I loathe more than group activity, that communal bath where the hairy and slippery mix in a multiplication of mediocrity.

InDefinite Podcast
