I’ve been a terrible host, neglecting my duties here as I galivant about the web trash spouting out about poetry, the Beatles, and Maus.
I’ve linked to what I’ve been up to since my last post below.
I’m having a great time with a Friday feature over at ordinary-times.com called POETS Day. That’s an anacronym for Piss Off Early, Tomorrow’s Saturday.
I start with a scheme to fool your boss and get you out of work early so you can jump start your afternoon and hit the happy hour specials asap and the throw in a story of what at least I think of interest followed by a poem with some commentary on the work.
Honestly, it’s fun. I’ve written a few other non-poetry related stuff over the last few months. If you want to dive in, the links are below.
POETS Day: Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory
POETS Day: Rudyard Kipling and a Very Unlucky Jack
POETS Day: The Shakespearean Sonnet Edition, #XIX
POETS Day: The Clive James Fury Edition
Maus and The “Ban”
POETS Day: Gerard Manley Hopkins and Near Perfection
WordPress is messed up and not just because their editing software underlines wordpress as a misspelling. Up above you’ll see that sometimes a sentence is blue for the link and sometimes a letter. I highlighted the whole sentence every time and set the link and sometimes it worked and sometimes it just took a word or two. I quit trying to make it work. Sorry.
I’m going to try to be more punctual (read attentive) in the future about populating this site, even if it’s with stuff from other sites I write for.
