Thanks to David G. Walker for publishing my poem “Pleasant Places Always Leave Us,” in the latest issue of The Golden Walkman. GW is all audio–poets reading their poems and then talking about the inspiration surrounding the poem and then David also makes comments about the poems sometimes (and in this issue you can hear David’s cat playing in the background.) I can’t tell you how cool The Golden Walkman is. I am so honored to be in it for a second time on this last day of April, full moon in Scorpio, the sun is shining, the wind in my hair. xxoo. (Also love how Gabe Kahan is reading his poem “Church Street” outside.)

Here is my review of Kristin Sanders’ “Cuntry” (Trembling Pillow Press, 2017) up at Agape Editions. Everyone should read this book.

Sanders’ speaker delivers the guts, the skin, the heartbreak, the intimacy into our collective conscious…Sanders taps into an immense loneliness of our culture, of our women who are still silenced, who are still ‘cuntry objects.’ We have the right to embrace the ugliness, the complexity, the messiness, the arousal of our woman-ness. It is fair. It is time. Sanders tells us to ‘redo the parts where your desire was left out.’
