just to let you know, the february / 15th anniversary issue of elimae is now online, and it contains two of my fragment poems: http://elimae.com/2011/02/Five.html (taken from my forthcoming five parts of love chapbook)
not much other news - still waiting to hear from the schools i applied to, so keep those fingers crossed!
i am currently reading anne carson's if not, winter (again!) and lee ann roripaugh's beyond heart mountain. the other night when i came home i found two poetry books and some chocolate in my mail box, with no note or name to them - die schönsten gedichte von heinrich heine and liebesgedichte von frauen, so i guess i know what i'll be reading next. :D
i did figure out who the gifts were from, eventually. i wonder, however, which is worse: taking candy from strangers, or taking poetry from strangers? in any case, they were not from a stranger.
