"When I begin to doubt my ability to work the word, I simply read another writer and know I have nothing to worry about. My contest is only with myself, to do it right, with power, and force, and delight, and gamble."

tiny buddha

there's a
tiny buddha
on top
of my pen
to remind
me that
life is suffering
as if
the ink
wasn't doing
that already

body scrapings

after i
w/ my body
still wet
i like to
scrape the
dead skin
off my

i like to
feel the
body shavings
flake off
and crumble
under my

it reminds
me of
clawing away
at my soul
like a
cheese grater

but under
the dead
is a
fresh layer
of skin
to stop
death from
finishing me

I've been neglecting this blog.
Just want to update and let everyone know about upcoming zine appearances.

Both of the zines at Epic Rites: Lines Written W/ A Razor and The Thin Edge Of Staring will have me in their upcoming issues. Lines will be printing two of mine "Black Coffee" and "In the front row for Armageddon", and Thin Edge will be using one of mine "ink & seed" sometime soon - but it's published on a rolling basis so I will post it when it's on there. Huge fan of these guys, these zines, and their press. Check out Epicrites.org and support them.

Rob Plath's zine The Exuberant Ashtray will be using one titled "guts" in his next issue. I'm excited about it as I'm a huge fan of Robs. Awesome dude, Awesome zine.

"Children, Churches, and Daddies", a really cool magazine, will be using the poem "saving lives" in their December 09 issue, but it should be available online soon. As soon as it is, I'll post the link.

until next time
