Finished Zachary Schomburg's The Man Suit yesterday

My favorite poems in this book:

Islands in the Black Night
The Whale
If Great Lakes
What Everyone Started Wearing

When I go to a party, I try to accessorize with their house.

I went to a party this weekend where the host had an Egyptian-themed room, and I happened to be wearing the skirt I made from a vintage bed sheet with an Egyptian-theme print.

Thank you!

After the poetry reading I went to in Cambridge tonight I had to run to catch the subway. (I secretly love when I have to sprint to the train). A man saw us running, and stood in the doorway of the train to make sure it didn't leave before we got inside.

Should poets coordinate their outfits with their book covers?

I am reading at an open mic tonight. I am going to try and get Kris to take a photo of me while I'm reading.

Once I realized I don't have a photo of myself holding my book at a podium, I really want one now.

Squirreltown, aka Cambridge

Kris and I walked around Cambridge on Sunday, and tried going to the (closed on Sunday) Grolier Poetry Bookstore. The owners were outside the store talking and offered to open the store for us. I told them we'd come back another time.

We hung out with this squirrel instead:

I liked NaPoWriMo so much, I decided to do it a more than once a year. I am on day 12 of writing a poem draft every day for a month.
