“I wanted to avoid the line break. Line breaks are seductive, but for the time being neither they nor the silences at the ends of line breaks feel right. Line breaks feel like cliffs leading to a kind of dangerous euphoria.” - Donna Stonecipher
I finished Tinkers and actually read most of the most recent New Yorker, a feat I only accomplish when on vacation or while camping. Tinkers was good but it didn't blow my mind or anything. Jeffrey Eugenides story was kind of okay! I think I liked it.
Have been reading Donna Stonecipher's The Cosmopolitan and I love it. Stu Wilson gave it to me when I was in Minnesota, so thanks Stu!
Wrote all around my vacation. Mostly prose poems and I'm digging that form.
There won't be any more issues of Caffeine Destiny. I know I said that once before, but I'm saying it again and I mean it. I have loss the will to code and solicit, two things that needed to be done intensely before each issue went up. Some day I'd like to publish chapbooks, the hold-in-your-hand kind, but that's a project for later on.
It's raining again. It is June. Laura is singing for Portland Teen Idol this morning and we are leaving soon.
I will know I am at work tomorrow because there will be no labrador sleeping nearby. And my hair will be brushed.
