…to go around saying I was on PreP before it was cool?
Because I was. I was the first patient in my entire medical group to go on it. And it’s pretty fucking awesome.
That is all.
I remember reading something about Coldplay, to the effect that they used to be an indie band recording the video for “Yellow” off a cloudy beach, but they’re a world-ranging mega band now and pretensions toward indie-hood just ring hollow. Likewise, suburban kid gone native served me well into my 30s; I currently own, among other things, a fountain pen costing literally 100 times the price of a single Bic Cristal—a humble, sincere pose just isn’t frankly that sincere of me, these days. Sophistication, though, has its place in the world. If David Bowie taught us anything.
That is all.
The Schubert version of Ave Maria makes me feel happy and at peace with my life. That is all.
I thought of titling this post, “lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice” (Stevie Nicks is the inspiration for this site’s tagline, afterall). Lightning is chance, though, and Poetry is chance + hard work Anyway, more anthology news, this time from the San Diego Poetry Annual; they’ve put up the listing for the 2015-16 Anthology; I’m on page 286. In addition, to celebrate the SDWI anthology acceptance, my husband bought me some lovely blue shades of Faber Castell ink at Massdrop. So, a pretty awesome day
