More about what people are reading to come, but I have a poem up at Levelerthis week, if you'd like to read it and comment. (Some people took this little car ride with me recently at a reading.)
I love Leveler for its wonderful brief essay--click the box to the right when you get there--on how the poem works. Then you can click Level With Us to submit a comment of your own on the poem and/or essay.
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I worked as an actor, wrote for an encyclopedia, edited a literary magazine, shelved and retrieved materials in several libraries, walked beans, and taught college English courses. Now I write & edit as a freelancer, direct plays, blog "eight days a week," study the random, and listen to birdsong.
