The lovely Ashley Lamb (Pilot Books' unofficial assistant and officially awesome poet and visual artist) was the winner of the super exciting unjumble the jumble contest race challenge.

Not only did Ashley guess correctly that the letters spell "Tom_y Hilf__er" but she also guessed that those letters are eatable sugar letters and that today was the birthday of my friends (twins) both (unfortunately) named TH. Not really, but her story is better than the story of where those letters really came from.

Fun with letters

Who likes the jumble? First person to figure this out gets a free copy of BRIEF WEATHER. Bonus copy of COMING DOWN IN WHITE if you can guess why these letters are on my couch or where, specifically, they came from.

CLUE: it's a brand name

HINT: it's the same two words twice. four words; two of the same.

Hot Emu Love

you simply gotta go here to see the glory that is Hot Emu Love. i recommend (highly) the disco option.

all of a sudden i feel very happy, uncharacteristically jubilant in the sweltering bosom of july. maybe it's emus in kneepads, and Abba. maybe it's i'm reading this book. maybe it's the $90 i just spent on fabulous vintage dresses (which i really can't afford right now). whatever it is, i like it. hope you are liking your own july, wherever and whoever you are.

Big Searchlight from Small Anchor Press

The newly founded micro-press Small Anchor is now taking submissions for their chapbook series. Checkout their website for more info.

They'll be publishing a chapbook of mine sometime in the near(ish) future; a long poem that I've been working on for a long time. I couldn't be happier that it is in their hands.
