  4. Igor

      hustle of out a sense of hopelessness.

  5. mark leidner

      no they do exist, i just coulda made them less whaley, they’re like two white whales in an ocean of male gaze

      i think it works because of the cat.

      in my mind, the cat is thinking “WTF IS WRONG WITH THIS BITCH?”

      I love this shit.

      I saw Tomaz Salamun read. First poem he read in Slovenian, it was epic. I got to spend time with him, talk and shit. Just an a real great guy.

      I could watch these all night long.
      Put them in a book,
      a chapbook. (Include a CD.)

      ‘The Materiality of Language: Nights in Chapbook City’. Man, I’ve already bought five!

      Readings dont’ always suck, just most of the time. (Poets are the worst. I wonder why. Something about the preciousness of the delivery.)

      Love this remix, Mark. “Let’s stay in and get trashed.” And the li’l arm (line) at the end, then sleep. Sweet.

      thanks jon, yeah tomaz is fabulous, i saw him read and immediately was like “this guy is famous for a reason…”

      too bad when you’re ambitious you have to be jealous of your superiors… “all in the game” etc

      and yeah some readings are rare… soul experiences…

      it’s very tough for a poet to give a great reading, but it is possible.. if the stars align…
