COME TO AN EXTRAVAGANCE!!!!! AT THE FOX & EGG GALLERY! MARCH 15TH! 7 PM! BYOB! SPRING BROKES / SPRING BREAKS INTO THE OPEN!
I am a woman-shaped pile of slime and rage, powered by sheer exhaustion. PEEL MY FACE BACK THIS IS WHO I AM!
Notes, etc. I took on my phone during the conference:
Girl sometimes missing / COMPULSIVE RELATIONSHIPS / so massive it must be dispersed / Matt Hart’s panel at 12? / Vicarious sex is better than none is the celebrity spectacular Fell in love with Adam Fell listening to Nirvana alone in his hotel room presence and partner breath quietest loud noise NOISE @ 11 with Leora Kelin Panel Proposals for Next Year? Thank God Noise is a sickness noise is full retreat from sound just a disorienting release FIND JARED / MAKE HIM PROMISE poetry of misrecognition Waste Flows -Joe Hall pollution as appropriation Maybe I am the German in this situation -Vanessa Place is walking behind me / looking for imaginary language with real poems in it. The hardest thing to project through is the hole in your face. Ronaldo Wilson terrifies me even when he’s reading about the ocean and how nice it is and that’s why he needs to be my teacher Forms that can’t hold so much. Did I scare Dillon? Blue Green Despair Fire. Alexis Alexis Reading is Dirt / LOAM on Fire Beyond the place to pain / rainy posters. In The Dream Hoa Nguyen writes a poem with me / for me / those boots. “Time is a Helpless Bitch” N writes it down for me in his phone / half asleep. Dream Book To RACHAEL. Add the Weiner dream? I should imagine with my body if possible / standing on an intense place / an awe for the incredible permanence of the act of writing / surviving something feels like killing it. THE WHOLE COUCH WE HAVE IT. Paper made from a plant in Nepal / Seattle / color: perfectly dried blood I pick out the flower religion or insist on it. Orange Ruefle Feather Blazers! Don’t approach without something invisible + beating. Performance is not going to lunch with your friends. SO MANY ODWALLA BARS NOT ENOUGH GALE M says what do you think you learned and doesn’t realize what an incredible question that is and how it’s exactly what i was thinking about when E cried at the end of the coconut / bloof reading because we were burning to death after the basement canoe Everyone
