Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends

Tonight was the first meeting of my class for the week, so I had the day to myself again for some extra reading/writing/alone time to enjoy:

Rita Dove as permanent sidewalk art

Bridge over the Iowa River that takes me to the running/walking path every day

Random pretty things

The As and Bs of the Journals Section of the University Library


Back Issues of American Poetry Review, Alaska Quarterly, and Boulevard

“Knife” by Fleda Brown (on her blog – recommended by Molly Spencer)

Website archives of The Prose Poem


MaybeSheWill – Not For Want of Trying (writing)

Lykke Li – Wounded Rhymes and Youth Novel (walking)

Frank Turner – England Keep My Bones (reading)

M83 – Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming (on and off all day)


Revisions of three older prose poems

Free-write about a church and a steeple

Free-write about words you are not supposed to use in poems

Free-write/draft of a poem starting “It would take too long to explain…”


Three short poems written in response to short films by Belgian video artist Marc Swoon Bildos – Marc chose them to be a part of his films – very exciting! More news on that as it develops.
