What I like about this game
is how I keep finding myself wandering through public spaces reading poems out loud.
And how so often that public space is a grocery store.
Perhaps today I should take myself to a more challenging environment.
What would that be?
In other news, some time between 3 and 4pm EST today I will be getting a call from the host of a radio show called “Slappy Pinchbottom’s Odd Preoccupation,” on KOOP, a community station in Austin, Texas. I will be reading a poem, just like always.
It’s exciting when groups of people call. I have talked to a couple from Toronto looking for a love poem, a class in Western Massachusetts, my sister and her vacation cohorts at Cape May, and two friends with one cat.
I want to read a poem to a swim team.
I want to be swimming right now.
