The most difficult part of my job is opening this box every morning when nobody else is around and not devouring all dozen. #doughnutproblems
This weeks #read78 poetry book was Everyone I Love is a Stranger to Someone, Annelyse Gelman’s #writebloody debut. I enjoyed the playfulness in the imagery even in poems on more serious subject matter, created a super realistic tension that I feel often between fun/joy/magic and sadness/loss/brokenheartedness. “giraffes” was one of my favorites for sure, as well as a poem in the voice of the narrators grandmother. Check it out! #poetry #books

A few days ago I tore through The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. While I may not be entirely in agreement with his spirituality, this book was the kick in the ass I needed as a writer. If you’ve ever felt blocked from finishing/starting a creative project, this book is for you. I swear. #read78 #books #art #writers
This asshole thinks this is how going on a walk works.
My #read78 poetry book this week is Marge Piercy’s Mars and Her Children. It was interesting to watch how color (each section titled after a color) played into the book. I enjoyed how setting/nature/place was able to play an important and not at all cheesy role in the poems. #books #poetry
This asshole is only upset because he can’t wish @meganfalley a happy birthday in person.

Totally over this asshole.
My #read78 poetry book this week was Tomas Tranströmer’s Selected Poems. It wasn’t my favorite, but I did enjoy the way he described Scandinavia. It’s an interesting experience to read translated work and made me wonder what sort of magic got trapped and lost in the translation. #poetry #books
