Got some good mail the past few days: My contributor's copy to the No Tell Motel's Bedside Guide, some books for my Postcolonial Poetics class (Komounyakaa, Glissant, McGuckian), and Daphne and Jim. The latter is Laurel Snyder's choose-your-own-adventure versified biography chapbook. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun.
My top 5 sexiest poems (not "the best" or "my favorite" necessarily, but "the sexiest") in the Bedside Guide, not including my own:
"Waking" by Britton Laine Carducci
"Caving" Christy Zink
"Sympatico" by Ravi Shankar (but only for its last two lines)
"Adam's Conversion" by Remica L Bingham
"On Reading Poorly Transcribed Erotica" by Jill Alexander Essbaum
When the book closes, my poems get to press up against Reb Livingston's and Eden Osucha's poems in the dark.
