Hopefully by Tuesday I’ll put up some poems that are not studying haikus. I did go to a reading last week and I do have recording of the poems I read and 2/3 of them have already been published at Eternal Haunted Summer…I’ve just been rather neglectful of actually putting them up. Be it because I don’t feel super about the reading or because I’m somewhat burnt out on poetry or because I’ve been having some crazy stress around getting ready to quit my job, move, and start a new job… Regardless, I’m really behind posting those poems and I’m quite sure those of you who follow this blog would be delighted to see something that isn’t vocabulary based haikus.
