mostly poetry

gangway guest editors gabriele poetscher and walter hoelbling have accepted all five poems i sent them for the myself and others issue due out soon! gangway was the first e-zine to ever publish my work, waaaaay back in 1998 or so.

kaleidowhirl sent a rather nice rejection letter. the editor mentioned a particular poem she liked, saying that she only had a problem with one line. so, that's encouraging. i'll try again next time.

i'm still "at it". here are poem titles 141 - 150:

day 141 - The Longing of the Long-Distance Lover
day 142 - molybdenum (mo) - northeast of europa, thirteen seconds past the beginning of time
day 143 - Xenon (Xe) - The day I fell in love with a Geissler tube
day 144 - Promethium (Pm) - The day I fell in love with a thief
day 145 - Caesium (Cs) - The day I fell in love with an atomic clock
day 146 - Tantalum (Ta) - The day I fell in love with a smoke detector
day 147 - At full moon (fib)
day 148 - Uranium (U) - The day I fell in love with a little boy
day 149 - Bismuth (Bi) - The day I fell in love with a sinker
day 150 - Mercury (Hg) - The day I fell in love with a barometer

i am participating in steve mueske's poetry workshop, and i find myself reading nietzsche in my spare time. go figure. :)

i had a job interview today which went rather well. we'll see what happens.

song of the day: don't stop me now by queen.

Congrats, Michi! Nietzsche is fun, in an almost torturous manner. Crossing my fingers for you regarding the job!
