1/3 of the mammals in the above photograph wrote 1/2 of the book below that photograph, collab-style. So get it. Jehz. The book.

Your boy got 2nd prize in this summer's SLS-Russia poetry contest. So if you're looking for me, I'll be in St. Petersburg during the second half of June and the first week of July. This will be my very first time off this continent. Ура!

O Portland

Cuban food. Mexican food. Indian food. Japanese food. Mark Kozelek show. Hipster haircut. Driftwood lounge. Used clothing store. Powell's. Rode the bus with crazy people who spilled Nillas everywhere. Chiropractor. Graveyard. Graveyard. Graveyard. Groceries.

The Man Suit was chosen by the New York Public Library as one of the 25 Books to Remember for 2007. As far as poetry goes, it's just Robert Hass, Margaret Atwood and me. Eeeeeeek. So, if you forgot about it already, maybe you shouldn't. You should think about remembering it.

Mathias is throwing two simultaneous birthday parties at 6 on Sunday. One is for me and one is for this guy named Robert. This is the poster for my party. Both parties will feature alcoholic drinks & cakes. You can only go to one of the parties. He knows that sounds stingy, but it is a rule.

Ben Estes is displaying his new artwork in Iowa City's Burford Gallery this week. He made some art, kind of a series of broadsheets, out of all 23 sections of my new long poem, The Pond. Ben Estes and I make a good team. I'm going to read The Pond at the gallery on Friday, April 11 at 8. The show opens at 7:30. Don't be a loser.
