This American Life!
But the fact is that, for the moment anyway, I've essentially stopped blogging. Not because I don't enjoy it--I love blogging a lot--but because I felt like it was taking time and energy away from getting an agent, which is allegedly why I moved to New York in the first place. So at the moment I'm spending all my time reading, and writing, and generally preparing my book(s) for presentation. When this is finally accomplished, you can be sure I'll be crowing to the skies on this here blog. And of course, if I come up with any new poems in the meantime, this would seem to be the place to put them. I ran across a new potential Vocabulary Poem ("NOCTUARY, n. a journal of events that occur at night") and the 70th anniversary of Spam probably merits poetic commemoration... But in the meantime, and with my 39th birthday looming on October 3rd, getting this major life goal accomplished is obviously prominent in my mind.
Also, I guess I should mention that I've got another story in the works for later this year on This American Life, and for once it's not about religion. You'll see; I don't want to jinx it.
