« "A Llullian Circle" [by Felix Singer] | Main | Sportin' a Hoodie [by Jill Alexander Essbaum] »

October 23, 2008


Oh, Jill, this is wonderful advice! The use of "snogged" is one of the more embarrassing symptoms of my recently diagnosed Anglophilia (hence the medication). And, full disclosure: the "bloody hell" lines were stolen--er--suggested by a performance I was listening to on CBC Radio 2 while I wrote. It's either Frederic Rzewski's Coming Together or Chris Paul Harman's Doubling. Gotta love those Canadians!
eternally grateful,


You are a strange and wonderful creature. And entirely too creative with words for your own good.

Keep up the good work.


PS: Helga was lousy

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
