Poet: A Full Time Job

If only, right?

Yikes, life's gotten busy and complicated and beautiful. Who knew?

So it's been about three weeks now since I've had time to put pen to paper and write. The quiet white page awaits, but my mind's simply been occupied. With? Teaching, readings, working, editing...

Is it a coincidence that I've also successfully loaded a PSX emulator on my netbook and am replaying old RPGs? Oh, no no no... that has nothing to do with my most recent poetry failures... lol.

So I think I need to get back to prioritizing. It's a constant struggle, but one that is oh so worthwhile :)

In other more cheery news:

I have some readings lined up!

Tonight I will be participating in this:
