This morning I learned from Janaka at Black Ocean that a freshman at SUNY-Albany, Kimberly DeGrosky, has tattooed the black and white telephones from The Man Suit on her biceps. I'm pretty sure this makes me happy, though I'm still trying to wrap my head around the implications. I mean, look at her, the power in those poetic arms. I hope they give her superhuman strength. May they ring constantly into infinity, keeping her wide awake to fight the poetry infidels. She is my new ambassador of poetry, and maybe Black Ocean's too. She and I and Janaka are now committed to that book for life. Now, I hope she gets those trees in Scary, No Scary on her knuckles.

What will it say about Scary if she doesn't?
