If you were here, Baby, we'd increase the dose

The thing about Baltimore is it pockets people. Listen Baltimore, you already have the best sign ever made, why so greedy?

In other news: if you were hoping for a little crybaby of your own and had been following the saga of the orphan kitty, I'm sorry to say she's been adopted by a "dog person" no less. I mention this only to warn you that I know cats and if I tell you to check a stray cat out as s/he is extraordinary, you'd best do so. Like my favorite people,I find cats based on some indescribable amazingness and they don't stay on the market for long. Everyone gets jealous of you if you get one.

Better luck next time.

More drumrolls....

While applauding our lovely and talented Cindy King, I was able to find that Ted Worozbyt from my Alabama days was FINALLY with book. Ted doesn't write an imperfect poem, he's incapable.
And while we're at it, keep an eye on the luscious Paul Guest as he publishes a poem or a book every couple of hours.
Matt Guenette...what can anyone say about Matt G. except read everything he writes with and without line-breaks.

Jones/Bottrell Grant and Update: Crybaby Finds Home!

I have this thing I try to do every year for my late and so-loved cat, Sneakily Jones and for my dear friend Eliot Wilson's late, sexy, macho John Wayne cow-cat, Wallace Bottrell. This thing involves a cat being adopted and my paying for vaccinations or a portion of spaying or neutering or depending on the sweet deal I find us on vets here (not as familiar as I might be) both shots and whatnot surgeries.

A New Peep: Kristi Maxwell

And you're first in line for her forthcoming book Realm Sixty-Four, from Ahsahta Press.

Introducing Stephanie Rogers

If you like poetry at all, or if you like poetry not a bit and are alive and hope to feel even moreso, read Symphony for Red.

And watch for Ms. Rogers exploding on pages everywhere.

L'Shana Tovah, BFF

If you were here, I'd show you the sky.
