that dog is dead

i just ordered blake butler's chapbook 'pretend i am there but very little.' i ordered it completely on the merit of its title. i like that title. you can read the whole thing on his blog if you want but i get impatient reading things online. and with a title like that, shoo.

i think maybe it should be our next official book after 'a green light,' yes? i will buy the whole literati a copy if only you will let me have my way.

also i forgot to tell everyone that i was in juked a few weeks ago. read it, eat it.

sarah was reading 'a green light' this morning and then we had this conversation:

sarah: why is poetry so much better than fiction?
me: because poetry is better.
sarah: shut up.

reading poetry is more fun than reading fiction, but writing fiction is way more fun than writing poetry.
This is true because I said so, but whoever has administrator privileges should put a survey on the side of the page to prove that I'm right.

also, fiction writers are sluttier.

writing poetry is hard. unless you're kathy. then it is like breathing. i think it has to do with lovingkindness meditation...

would you quit it! i am going to use all your comments about me as blurbs for my next book which will obviously be self-published.

especially the one about the dragons.

no one objected to blake's book so i'm doing it doing it doing it

Sarah said...

hooray, do it do it!

for some reason i feel ashamed about liking reading poetry. i have never liked it before. it was like that day when i woke up and suddenly green peppers were delicious.
