Truthfully, I will not attend any of these.

But I would like to, in a way.

Caroline Knox has new book coming out on Wave called Quaker Guns (what a title!) which I procured a copy of. She's a brillaint technician.Below is an excerpt. Maybe I will go and say hello.


We took our bathrobes and stuck them in the washer.
(Ritta put hers in the blue laundry machine.)
I said, “Refen ingete inget.”

Nocturnes are hard to Xerox;
birds follow the glare of water.
We prepare tax returns for people in Florida,
people in Florida whom we have never met.
