What I’ve Been Doing Instead of Writing/Blogging

  • Playing Shovel Knight, You Have To Win The Game, and vvvvvv.
  • Drinking so many great beers.
  • Driving to Portland, wandering around Pittock Mansion, trying not to buy all the books at Powell’s, drinking at Clyde Common, scoring a free pour of Yamazaki 18 at Pepe le Moko.
  • Pub trivia.
  • Killing a job interview.
  • Editing the next prose chapbook for Lettered Streets.
  • Wasting a lot of time on social media.

“Poet Voice doesn’t just mess up the relationship between music and meaning at the local level of a poem. In the style’s unwavering wavering, it steamrolls tonal variation and charges every moment in a poem with the exact, same, energy.”

I am a stubbornly optimistic person: to the point where people find it incredibly annoying (which I totally get). But it’s true—one of the things that got me through difficult parts of my life was waking up each day believing that today could be…
