My poet pal Christopher runs Vouched Books, a really great organization that gets small press publications out to the public, so you should go czech that out, and read his blog. The most recent post was about our reading in Indianapolis at Calvin Fletcher Coffee Co., a not-for-profit coffee shop with an amazing menu and a cozy atmosphere for things like doin' homework or reading some killer poetry. About 40 people and several fruit flies came out to the reading. Thanks! This photo courtesy of Christopher's pal Brandon. Check out more on Vouched Books!

At any rate, you can listen online here: http://www.grcmc.org/radio/listen.php
Or you can listen if you're in Grand Rapids, MI by turning to 88.1 FM. These new-fangled radio talky boxes with buttons and knobs are the watermark of the future! I can feel it.

Tanya Jarrett drove all the way up from Nashville and is still here, so I'm going to show her a proper Indiana fourth of July and take her to Fort Wayne where we'll watch barefooted drunk hillbillies shoot tiny rockets off at passing cars.

In other news, Al Abonado is getting published in Gargoyle next summer--a magazine that once upon a time published Bukowski. And lots of Bukowski.
Also, I got a really nice form letter from The New Yorker this morning. I could probably paper-mâché a small boulder with those letters if I had the patience to print them out and learn how to paper-mâché.
