Thursday (Ready to Mail!) Musings

I am finished editing my thesis. It will be printed this evening and mailed out tomorrow morning.

Exhaling slowly.

A pop quiz found on OnTheCusp:

1. When was the last time you wrote a poem?About a month ago.

2. What was its title? Flannel

3. What was one image from the poem (if applicable)? Being wrapped in flannel is like sleeping in dirt.

4. Do you currently have a poem percolating in your brain? Yes. I have no clue what it’s about.

5. If you answered “yes” to number four, what is one image from that poem? Obituaries.

This isn’t particularly encouraging. Damn economy.

I’ve been trying very hard to win the Paris Review Contest on Mark Sarvas’s blog, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. Here’s is a link to today’s clue.

For now, it’s a good reminder that we really ought to try and write better than a computer, while we still can.
