They Steal My New Yorkers Too, I Hope One of Them Wins the Caption Contest Eventually
I have a poem called "That Bullfight in the Forehead, Those Black Eyes" in Gulf Coast. I have a poem called "As Many as Fill the Mouth of Flies, As Much of Lure as Parts the Lips" in Black Warrior Review. I have a poem called "Who Has the Whip-Hand over Aimless Animals" in Zone 3. Here is the Halloween part: all of these magazines dropped yesterday on the dot. Is October 28th a special litmag holy day that I don't know about? I haven't received any of my copies yet because I'm moving in like five days and I had to get my address changed, plus juvenile delinquents in my neighborhood always steal them for some reason. I hope they're so disappointed! I hope they read my nature metaphors and are suddenly seized with the fact of their mortality! A juvenile delinquent reading my poem and going, "Oh no I'm going to die someday" is even sweeter than me getting to kill him myself, for revenge.
