I go to sleep and wake up
different. You make a lengthy
drive across Iowa to find
the other end of Iowa, its fields
hung silent in iron sky. Claims
are always being made
about precision. If I were a bird
I would mean to be
the small kind. What is going on
in that room where
no one lives? It might fill
itself with delicate things,
some very nice iron bowls,
twelve miniature trees all
of them aflame. Listen,
Cody. How many times
did they tell you
you’d never make it? One day
is never longer than
the next untangling film
from a canister. Somebody
means to measure you
by needle and light.
I take a quiet kind
of panic to the river.

Much is misnomer in our / present way of grasping the / world. But pines do / always seem queenly as / they sway so grand and / anciently from the sky to / the ground. Motion is part / of listening.
— Anne Carson, from “Typical Night-herding Songs”

I have a writer-y website now.

Unrelated: I also have business cards. This has nothing to do with writing or with the website, but I felt like sharing it because having business cards has always felt like something that can only happen to other people.

Does this make sense? No. Business cards never make sense. It’s ok. Shhhh.

Here’s “Do You,” the best Spoon song we’ll post today.

I am such a sucker for the well-formed, poppy rock song.

I am bad at work/life balance. Spare time feels like it doesn’t last long, and I mostly spend it writing. Feels good to be making things, but disconnected too. Fitting stuff in is hard. I miss my nephew.

He looks familiar, like the deer you almost felled

last winter in the woods, the deer you held
in your crosshairs, but couldn’t shoot because

the trees were ripe with bark. Don’t overthink it,
you said to yourself. A deer wouldn’t

make a decision. A deer would know
what it wanted when it walked into the dusk.
— Christian Anton Gerard, “Defense of Poetry IV,” published in Stirring (via bostonpoetryslam)
