Two Poems Up at The Dirty Napkin
I have two new poems up at The Dirty Napkin: "Dinner Party" and "Lives in Decline." This is a gorgeous journal, and I'm thrilled to appear alongside one of my favorite poets, the stunning Arlene Ang. (She and Valerie Fox have a new book forthcoming soon. I've had the privilege of a sneak preview and will post more details when the book's release date nears. It's a gem.)
At The Dirty Napkin, the editors provide the opportunity to record your poems. That was rather fun, even though I sounded like a drunken speed reader. Okay, yes, I drank a little wine before Jeremy called to do the recording. And I had to read fast because I live in a house with kids, parrots, and dogs, which means quiet moments are fleeting at best. Unlike Arlene, I did not wear a hat. Next time, I will borrow one from A, maybe something with feathers.
Other news of a distressing variety: My website has vanished like a fat man in quicksand. I am not amused. Apparently, a glitch occurred with the system where I purchased my domain name and website bundle. Now I am waiting to see if either the computer gurus or related gods can restore it. If I have to rebuild that damn site, expect to find me with a shaved head, wearing my sackcloth and ashes. There will be gnashing of teeth and profanity in mega doses. F%$#S@*S#$@#$%D^&*@!!!!!!!! See, it's already started.
