Aphoristastic

I have a few new poems up at The Awl (I didn't mean to time my Awl neg for the same day; for realz, I love The Awl). I like that someone called them "Aphoristastic!" in a comment, because I think of these poems as strings of faux aphorisms, plus connective tissue.

  1. What makes them faux, in my mind, is that I don't necessarily believe them. But maybe they're still straight-up aphorisms all the same.

  3. In fact he ought to be live-tweeting the entire thing.

  6. Glad you approve, and glad you're still going to bat for "begging the question."
