I was writing something nice about the webcomic "Hebi no Hana" when LiveJournal ate my post. Hence my move here. More on this later today.

I am moving my blog to BLOGSPOT!!!

Modify your blogrolls accordingly.

Considering that Claire and I have been moved to KaBLOW!sm, we have decided that to end T!E!S!S!E!R!A!C!T!sm. So here:

T!E!S!S!E!R!A!C!T!sm is DEAD!

It was too much of a pain to type all those exclamation points anyway.

Bored at work

Scanned at work, hence the weird quality. I may repost this once I fix my scanner and get my copy of Photoshop reinstalled.

A bigger scan can be seen here.


The Pulitzer Prizes have been announced earlier this week. I've never heard of or read Claudia Emerson. And once again, I could care less about the Pulitzer. Somehow, the Griffin Poetry Prize seems more relevant major-awards-wise.

What actually surprised me was to see Dean Young's Elegy on Toy Piano as a finalist for the Poetry Prize. Not that the book does not have its merits, but when was the last time that we saw a Surrealist/NYSchool-influenced book shortlisted for the Pulitzer?


Dr. Cano: Mr. Luong, I'd like to talk to you.
Me: Uh, yes, sir.
Dr. Cano: I've received many complaints from other employees.
Me: Complaints?
Dr. Cano: Hum, yes, complaints. Ms. Wilkerson, I need a witness for this. Several employees have been complaining that you make a coffee that is too strong. They're afraid it might kill someone. So now, there, you have been warned.


Wow, this is totally weird ... Apparently, my blog has readers in Canada, India, Germany, Finland, Italy and Pflugerville, Texas, among other places.

Books abound

Apr. 18th, 2006 | 01:22 pm

Just received in the mail:
-With Wax, by derek beaulieu, Coach House Press, 2003.
A beautiful book of visual poetry. Thanks, Jessica
-Jessica Smith's
chapbook, Shifting Landscapes, another beautiful collection of visual poetry you can will order from above/ground press.

Just downloaded and printed:
-Pterodactyls Soar Again, by Reb Livingston.
-Journals, by Jenna Cardinale.
Coconut Press is doing a good job of putting those chapbooks together and besides, they're free.

Good Poetry for Free!!

What more could you ask for? (Hope that the Great Chinese Firewall does not block access to Coconut Poetry's website? Email me if you are a Chinese dissident or resident yearning for free poetry!)

Speaking of free good poetry, some KaBLOW!st poets have their chapbooks available for free at Detumescence Press. So, for the expensive price of zero dollar, zero yuan, zero pound, zero yen, zero euro, you too can get exciting poetry by John Sakkis and Jessica Smith (as well as non-KaBLOW!sts like Logan Ryan Smith).

Oh, yeah:

K a B O L W !

I hate T.S. Eliot for being right about April. April must hate us for shifting the winds to the East, hence sending the pollen and dust that sickened John to Houston. Hence much sickness and much drowsiness (hence much riffing off of Milton). So, my next review for miPOesias will be delayed, as will my reading and critiquing for the KaBLOW! collective.


Johannes has started an interesting conversation about otherness and the "necessity of suffering" in foreign-born poets (translated or writing in English). Fortunately, no blog fight this time.

From The New York Times (via TruthOut):
Just the other day, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told the House Judiciary Committee that the names of the lawyers who reviewed Mr. Bush's warrantless wiretapping program were a state secret.

So ... where do you usually see "state secrets"? Yes, there.

It's Easter

... and He rose from the grave.


(Thanks to PJ for the idea.)

Jennifer Grotz reviews Parallel Play, by Stephen Burt for The Washington Post. I don't really care about Stephen Burt, although I do find his inclusion of Kitty Pryde and Buffy the Vampire Slayer cute, but Jenn is a friend. Hence the link.


Jessica wrote on Ron's blog:

"if you like Dr. Seuss you might like Edward Lear or Charles Bernstein."

Charles Bernstein
writes about the "Poésie Plastique" exhibition he recently curated with Jay Sanders.

Jessica also has an essay on the plasticity of poetry.
