Oh, also

I have three poems in the new issue of Denver Quarterly. I've wanted to be in this journal since I was a wee grad student, so, yay for checking off life goals.

What's up with CB2? It seems to say: "I want my stuff to look like it came from IKEA, with the comfort of knowing I paid more."

  1. You go with your Bad Poet Self! I'm not a poetry buff, but you might convert me.

    Congrats!

  4. Thank you! You are a Colorado dweller, right? We've been fantasizing about moving there.

  5. Yay, DQ! I recently got my first acceptance from them and it felt extra-affirming somehow, like a puppy getting its long-awaited Certificate of Pedigree

  6. Move to Seattle instead. I'm not a bit surprised. I just wish I could find it here. Upward and onward Poet Woman.

  7. Or move to San Francisco. Total simulacrum of Brooklyn.

    As for CB2, of course you should pay more than IKEA. You're paying to have someone else put your stuff together!

    I stopped mentioning word verification, but this one is too good not to mention: "evoism"

    F: Ohhhh, is THAT what you're paying for? Parts AND labor.
