Recently, I've been wearing fake tattoos and smoking candy cigarettes. Right now I am sporting a dragon shooting flames from its nostrils on my right upper arm, and a box of Hawk candy stix smashed up in my pocket. I think I am going to try to make it my new thing, at least for the next few months. It has been a thing I do before, but I am ready, I think, to commit to it.
Today at 3 I am going to watch Invasion of the Body Snatchers with A. Tomorrow, I have an interview for another teaching gig. This one is at the Community College in town. I'll be a busy busy very poor little poet. Will be sending the manuscript out to a few places this weekend for another round of bruising. It is ready. It has new armor.
