Sick day?

I'm allergic to missing work, so I'm going to try to go in today, but I'm feeling pretty terrible, so we'll see.

I've been spending a lot of time reading and writing poetry. The best stuff I see both inspires me and makes me despair that I'll ever be really good at it, but I know better than to let that discourage me from practicing the art and improving as much as I can. It's a really satisfying pursuit even if I stay just-okay at it forever.

All of which is to say I want to start sharing some of the really good stuff I see as I go along, so I can find it later and so you can have the chance to see it. Here are a couple I've really really enjoyed lately:

“My Mother Makes a Religion” by Leila Chatti

“Menarche” by Melina Papadopoulos

These particular ones are from Rattle, which offers a poem-a-day email you can sign up for if you want at http://www.rattle.com

If my head feels better soon, I'll work on the Resistance Manual. Otherwise, I may just go back to bed.

Have a good day, my lovelies!
