it hopped me up on the underground and I’m gonna ride that train  . many more times . . Radioactive . . Press . . YES!

Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson

I like the nine dancers and the big fat protagonist. I like nine. I like nine errors and Linus Slug. I am now writing a chapbook reworked from 2008 and it’s all because of the nine. The new chapbook is called The Circle Line. Nine line poems. Each poem a different station on the circle line. Using bits of Dante. And lotsa other sources. There are nine circles of hell too. 3 sets of trinities. The third gender three times. And the third way with three different people. Nine. Don’t we all love a good nine. Thank miss Jeanette Winterson who hid books under her bed cause as a child she was only allowed books bout the bible and such . . love live nine . . and Jeanette Winterson  ..

Airplane Food by Gabby Gabby

 I love the gab of this gabby. This gabby gabby. 23 yr old California males and 19 yr old Virginians to kick start . . Jack Kerouac.. joints . . the thumbs . . I see a lot of thumbs . . it feels like nostalgia . . but it’s too flighty . . the welcome signs are pay per use scales . . a Jay Z look-alike. . . depression for dummies . .  Tao Lin but not Tao Lin . . all the buttons on his wee shirt gone. . Spring . . stein . . at Dunkin Donuts . . a warm pool of vomit . .

There is something happening

excerpt of one of my novellas in progress over at Metazen.

It starts with a mysterious snorting.

The horny toads are the suitors . . you just have to get past their horny exterior and then its clean sailings . .

And Diana Salier’s Letters from Robots

Both highly recommended. I am hoping Gabby Gabby’s Airplane Food will be fab fab as well. Liked what I read at 3:AM and her videos and such:

 

Here are some of her poems in 3AM magazine:
Video poems and links and such over at her webpage:

Seeing connections between them. And the films of Miranda July. A shared aesthetic. Of course all very different artists, writers, poets  as well.

Very spare minimalism. Powerful for me emotionally because of the over-saturation and manipulation of emotions via advertising/media/film/realist novels etc.

A hyper-realism sometimes . . perhaps . .  and therefore surreal . . a new surrealism framed by current conditions of 21st century living. What does that mean? 21st century living? HA! Something I can quite articulate because there are too many variables. But also something there there.

A honest absurdity in their work? authentic? Can we use that word? Authentic?

I can’t connect to pure poetry pure art pure music. Maybe a little. But not much. There is a disconnect between how I experience and move in the world and pure anything. I have always been drawn to the impure and its beauties.

And cognitive behavioral therapy for all . . .
