Various Sundries

Justin Marks has written and published a thoughtful review of Whirligig in H_NGM_N.
*
The two title poems from Whirligig, titled "Whirligig" and "Girligig" are published in the new print edition of Verse Magazine. It's a giant issue. The magnificent Chris Tonelli also appears courtesy of the state of Massachusetts.
*
This (novel written via text message) interests me, mostly for any idiosyncrasies it may contain...that and I want to study its syntax and grammar.
*
I've done several passes now of my new book manuscript (tentatively titled There Are Airs). It's tightening up a bit, thanks to the help of some sharp-eared pals of mine, and many exciting hours. I'm trying to have it ready for February send-out to presses.
*
Former Poet Laureate Billy Collins is reading on the North Carolina State University campus where I teach. I wonder the amount of his stipend.
*
As a counter to the Collins' shout, here's a wonderful bit of Ginsberg video that gets me out of my seat.

My mail is very slow.

Oh bother, as Pooh would say, though I don't make it a habit of quoting Pooh.
