p.s.

While not writing honest-to-whole-milk "rants" (see below), I am working on an e-poem/hypertext toy inspired by Robert Grenier's Sentences, mantra poems of take-your-pick Beat-floosies, the testimony of my own silly discrimination, and a certain internet boredom site.

It was boring and stupid until the last idea.

Now it has a wowzer-dowzer "format" trick.

And splashy language.

I don't know if I will just host it myself or ask others if they want to host it. Hosting it myself is like a "vanity publication," and Lord knows I digz me some validation from the Other, but it's probably boring and stupid and I'm nobody, so who would want to host it?

Mike --

Keep me posted on the Grenier-esque project! I love that dude and imagine a riff on Sentences -- coming from one as sharp as yrself -- would be a really interesting project.

Thanks, Joe, I will keep you in the loop. And I owe you an email, which should go out todayzers.

Alex: the open-mic nights shall stay alive! The other thing I was talking about with Jess and the local poets, that's just an add-on, not a replacement. I just wanted to use the word "hijack." 'S a charming word.
