in the box

Well I actually have poetry news today. I will be reading next week (May 12) in Saint Paul, Minnesota, email me if you want directions and Shenandoah is holding my poem “Sparrow” which I am very, very happy about. Of course it will probably be another year before I see it in print. Pleiades was 18 months from acceptance letter to actual journal. It is amazing how long the birth of a poem is. Also the Loft Mentorship Applications are out today (for anyone else living in this cold state) www.loft.org I am thinking of applying for Non-fiction this year as well as poetry. I have been a finalist (I almost got to study with Doty) but I didn’t win and this year the poetry mentors don’t excite me. However Nick Flynn in non fiction does excite me and then I can sell photos to Jenni when I get to meet him. I am always so excited to apply for things until the depression sets in as I am licking the envelope.

I pay high dollar for Nick Flynn photos. If you can get one of him after he gets out of the pool and is covered in drops of water, then sorta sweeps back his wet hair--oh my gawd!!!

thank you Peter. I posted the above print for you b/c it reminded me of you and then I chickened out telling you, in case it seemed odd. You have a wonderful peace about you--that is a good thing.
