A New Story, A New Method

I have a short story, Walled By the Clean Frame up at First Stop Fiction. It is a bit of sound and furry. Perhaps it signifies something. If you are pressed for time, do not worry. It is a piece of what we in the business call "flash fiction." Recently, I have been writing more of it than I usual.

In other news, I have been shortlisted for the Erbacce Prize (along with a lot of other people) and my book Common Symptoms of an Enduring Chill Explained is now at the Poets House in New York City. I think it will also be part of their summer showcase. Buy it here at Amazon!

Below is a poem I composed using nothing but this week's top search terms for my blog. I have been writing a few like it. Perhaps the form can be called a "keywording," or something like that. I have underlined the words that people typed in when they stumbled upon this old mirror sponge of a site.

What Animals Live In Romania!
(Top Search Terms June 9, 2012)

Once more, I slept in hopes of reaching
A good time emporium where I be
Empowered to reach a decision, instead
I got visions of Oktoberfest
With no end in sight, blinded by beer
And attractive cutouts of German girls,
At least the music was different this time,
Someone was laying down
Romanian fresh tracks - may 2012 album,
I had no idea what the translation
Was urging me to believe in,
I recall black men hair designs edge ups
Though it all came out sounding
Like Old English poems, Beowulf,
Tergo sex woke me up,
Plus a misplaced titled from
The of best "walter ancarrow" poetry
At least the words had an awesome font
Even if they were dumb poems about butts
I take what I can get these days,
Memory refuses to act like a sponge,
Picturing an germany eagle gif
Seems to make things better for once.
