"Four Times I've Interacted with Justin Taylor in Real Life"
funny, man, i laughed at the ending. I got the blueprint 2, thanks, been meaning to tell you, it's been one of those summers - i read it while taking a shit - i hope that doesn't offend you but i did read the whole thing in one sitting - i had a friend once who got mad bc i left something he wrote in the bathroom bc i read it while i was shitting but for some reason i feel like you will not be upset by this and in fact might think it's great, but the moral of the story is i left it in s. FL and my mom forgot to mail it to me, along w like consider the lobster and hopscotch by cortazar - but she did send me crib death by frank stanford - i do not understand her choices - your bp2 is very light and would not have added to the shipping cost which was her reasoning for not mailing all of the books i'd left there. in short, what are you gonna call your 4th book, the blueprint 0? 5th book, the blueprint -1? when do you start at the new school? i wish i was still in NY but lo. peace
i would definitely recommend reading 'the bp 2' while pooping.
i'm gonna do 'the bp' and then stop with self-published chapbooks. i want to finish it by the time basketball (NBA) season starts, which is sometime in october, i think. 'the bp' will be slightly different stylistically (poems will have titles) and be printed on 'trader joes' bags because that's what i live close to now. it might be 'limited edition' or 'exclusive' or [some other buzzword meaning that i don't want to spend a lot of time/money printing, stapling, promoting, distributing].
some other poetry book titles i'm considering for future poetry books are 'andrew' and 'angry poems.'
i start school next tuesday. i got my new school id card today.
are you in iowa city now? do you know who your professors are gonna be?
