The 2007 Bay Area Poetry Marathon -- successful omissions

You don't admire an icon, you clcik on it
-- Noah Eli Gordon

To inhabit an abscence takes great balance
-- Rusty Morrison

The highlight was when Lyn Hejinian broke down whle attempting to read a part of a poem that gives a very long list of possible names for motels. You can imagine all the jokes made with word 'inn', but funnier still is Kyn Hejinian saying them. "I had so much fun writing these, I can't read them" she squeaked through laughter-tears. "Well, when it is published, you all can read it and laugh". She then proceeded to skip what I took to be a large section and ended with a line about counting all the horses in her 220 horsepower PT cruiser engine.

The event is curated by Donna de la Perriere & Joseph Lease

, where this blog lives now. because it can be read and posted to through that app, one-handed, on my back, by a body of water, or in the cool olive green light above my mattress. This is articulation my spine had not dreamed of before.

My blog lived on Tumblr for a minute

because it is so much easier to access from my phone. fallinginrealtime.tumblr This is the feed. No, I don't like it. I can't add another virtual box. I'll make due with Twitter.
