What is the single biggest mistake that poets make in marketing their work?
“Paying too much attention to marketing their work.”
--Jane Hirshfield, poet
Destroyed by autumn leaves
Christmas songs mid-November
wondering if we can cram any more death
into one year
I am constantly walking into photographs
Someday I will hire a detective to
track them down, demand royalties
Why is everyone in the café so obnoxious?
Has there been a release?
I wish singers
would learn to sing
with less emotion
winging a vee across the narrows
looking for one true voice
You don’t need to be good.
You need to mean it.
