This has truly been a crappy week. Truly. Truly truly truly NOT outrageous and NOT like Gem.
(good luck getting that song out of your head!)
But you know what’s NOT crappy about it?
It’s that the truly awesome James from Underground Books published a few of my new poems from the How to be an American series I’ve been working on.
So without further ado, here you go.
Thanks James, for taking a bit of the crap out of craptastic.
Also – this piece from Laurie Anderson about Lou Reed’s death is amazing. If I can face my own death or the death of people that I love with one third of this bravery and passion I will consider my life a success. And it also reminded me that one time I wrote a story about a girl who started a revolution because of a Lou Reed song. You can read it here if you want.
Peace, Love and Starbursts,
i always enjoy your work Ally, and i really enjoyed these 3 poems.
JJ – thanks so much. I really appreciate you taking the time to send me that note. Made my day!
