    I’m guessing this’ll mean little, seeing as I’m an anonymous stranger and all, but I visit your blog often hoping to see you’ve published more of your poetry.

    If Gary Lutz wrote poetry this would be it. (In fact, one thing I’ve wanted to know is if your practice, for lack of a better word, of using “once” at the beginning of some of your stanzas is inspired by Lutz’s story of the same name.) Yet your work is also wholly original. The idea of making a person see purple without you ever writing the word “purple.”

    Your lack of notoriety is a shame, especially compared to that of the “writers” through whom I found you via blog links.

    Every time I read your poetry, immediately afterward, I’m inspired to write.

    I hope you update more often.

    thanks chuckles

    i don’t know what you mean by my notoriety

    I have never read Gary Lutz. Sorry. Maybe I should.


    Once was actually mostly inspired by Eula Biss — specifically the Baloonists.

    Don’t read her book, it will make me seem less original.

    i’m looking forward to reading the linked-work.

    what i meant regarding your notoriety is twofold: (1) you should have books of poetry published and available for purchase and (2) i discovered your writing, unfortunately, through tao lin’s website. my mind is numbed by the fact that lin, zg, bsg, etc., have published work people can actually go out and buy while you, unless i’m mistaken, have yet to do so.

    i don’t understand how you’re lumped into that sect — even if it is in its periphery — in the first place.
