I’ve been delaying things for a little while here, waiting for a proper, ceremonial way to jump into internet-land, but alas, I think it’s time to just get rolling. It feels good to talk into this box. I’m sure I’ll start, very soon, the usual anxieties over page views and the endless void that is a blog on poetry, but until then, I’ll just sit here with myself and enjoy the view. Thanks for having me, or thanks for letting me have you.
For the first few posts I think I’ll talk about Charles Simic and Matthea Harvey, and, just to get some content rolling (since I’m quite ambitiously launching like 47 blogs at once) I might shamelessly post a few papers I wrote in the MFA. Why the hell not? At any rate, the only other thing I can say is that I plan to favor frequency over length and avoid the long diatribes it seems often accompany these sorts of things. Not much on breaking news, either. Mostly, some close reads, questions, links to good places,and the necessary updates on what’s going on in my publishing life, if only for my own record. Let me light this match. The canyons are lovely.
