Back to Ohio 2

Catherine Taylor buying herself a grilled cheese after the reading. It was an alumni poet reading with Matthew Cooperman, Leilani Hall, myself, and Ashley Capps. I somehow ended up without a picture of Ashley, but I promise she was there.

Halliday and Cooperman on the street outside Tony's, yammering mataphysics.

I also spent some time with Wayne Dodd in Athens and then Columbus. If you don't own a book of his poetry, go out now and get one. And buy one for a friend. trust me. He has a New and Selected in the works, I hear. And a memoir as well.

And then a random poet event: Who should be walking across the OSU campus but Chris Forhan and Alessandra Lynch. Odd how that happens.

this is why i need to move to the midwest. A grilled cheese sandwich is the EXACT thing that one wants after a poetry reading, but that would never happen here. no. we get like, fruit and sushi and shit.

The Midwest would love to have you. Go for it! There's plenty of space . . . just dial "nowhere" into the GPS and wait fo the fallow fields to start rising in the east . . .
