Rent Day

  • Kathy and I have a poem in the new issue of Salt Hill, which you can preview online. Other excellent people in the issue include Christopher Salerno and Absent alumni Simeon Berry and Lily Ladewig.
  • I went to Alabama for the first time this weekend, in order to see my wonderful friend Heather Green (the poet, not the porn star) get married. Other things I saw there: Jessica Smith and her beautiful monkey-child, rare Cahaba lilies, pimento cheese, and the remains of a Hobby Lobby, reduced by tornado into a parking-lot-size pile of rubble. It (the state, not the destruction) was more beautiful than anticipated.
  • SOTD: Jolie Madame.
  • A joke: Q: How many therapists does it take to change a light bulb? A: One, but it has to want to change.


  1. Imagine if psychologists used that joke as an analytical tool and made a diagnosis on the patient's reaction....

    I couldn't find your poem..perhaps I should put on my glasses and look again.

  2. Oh, my fault! You can preview the issue but not every page -- I don't believe our poem is part of the preview. You'll just have to trust that it's entertaining. :)
