from READ IT BACK:

There’s a story. Density in architecture. The tight beams and porch rails running up and down Baltimore City streets. The rows inside the row houses. The stories stacked upon stories. The edging running up the stairs. The edging running down the walls. The draft of ice-blue paper embossed down the curve of the stairwell. The exposed rafter you’ll catch just around the basement corner. The former residents cracked into the bathroom tile. The moldings up along the rim of the room. The long under-scores of floorboards racing each other up the hall. The frame introducing the door to the oak wood shell to the impenetrable plaster wall. Drill it in. Side it back. Push the door with the stained glass window back into the void and pull it back out again so the room changes. Changes from lemon sunlight and insulated curtains, changes to marled green lead pulled tight to a saffron oblong swallow. The radiators hitch in their first hours up from silence. Out the window, what’s falling on the marble stairs could be snow. Out the window, what’s falling on the marble stairs could be ash.
 
 
 
So What?                       Kim Dot Dammit Livekdotdammit on April 27th, 2014 08:50 pm (UTC)
That is beautiful writing. I'm going to buy a copy!

Thank you so much, lady! Your enthusiasm means a lot, considering how much I've enjoyed your work.

This has actually been in the works for a couple years. She accepted my mss back in 2011, but the release got pushed back because of my cancer ordeal. So glad that it's finally available. :-)

Hey j, do you know how long it takes once we order? I'm dying to get my hands on it. :)

I'm not sure, B. I've gotten the impression from past orders that she tends to ship in batches and sometimes she's waiting on a piece from the printer's. Hopefully soon! :-)

Cannot wait to have this in my hands.

I just saw this! I didn't see it on my phone for some reason. Must. Go. Buy.

DO IT. It's quite good, if I do say so myself. ;-)

I've also got a few individual pieces out/coming up in an online venue (hopefully more soon), and Petite Hound Press is combining a small poem of mine with another artist's visual art in an upcoming issue. Just signed the agreement form on that Wednesday.

That's great!

It's been... layer upon layer of rationalization, anxiety, and emotional root-rot trying to get me to actually SUBMIT THINGS PLACES and GET MY WORK OUT THERE, so actually doing it and actually seeing some progress is... really a good thing. Though I'm sure there's a degree of mad-dashing before the next psychic locust-swarm takes me over, as it did even after this mss was accepted.

The editor rearranged/beautified the shop recently, so the URLs changed. THANK YOU for pointing that out, I thought I'd updated the link here but apparently I hadn't. Here:

I'm going to fix the link on the page too, of course.

Wonderful! Ken just put the order in. We got a couple extras for friends.
