I'm 32 years old—living in New York City. I sit next to my open window and listen to the moon scrape across the tips of adjacent buildings and on good night, my own. I like beer more than soda and soda less than water.
I'm inspired by neon signs. Deep sea fish that glow in the depths. Mixtapes on cassette. Pretty girls who can type at high speed and drive shitty cars that may or may not catch on fire.
My favorite books right now are
1) Jesus' Son- Denis Johnson
2) In Watermelon Sugar- Richard Brautigan
3) Reasons to Live- Amy Hempel
I love compliments from Bud Smith because Bud Smith is one of my favorite writers. Review forthcoming. Glad you like the rainbow.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on "...Leaves". I like beer better than soda too.
Hola, amigo! Gracias for readin' and appreciatin' Bloodless.
Oho! I love that pepsi can floating poem... wow, cool.
Thanks, Bud, for searching out and liking "I Am Not a Corpse." Really appreciate it!
Hi Bud, Thanks so much for the insightful read and comments about "Float to Water," and thanks for the star (which didn't show up in the #'s. Weird). I thought "Hot Rocks" was terrific and not only for the music it references. How can anyone not fall for a girl that travels with a suitcase full of flowers?
Hi Bud, you like all the things I like. I thought you should know that and I'm going to go read your stories now.
Bud, thanks for you nice comment about "Testimony" from a fellow Denis Johnson fan.
Belated than you for your wonderful comment on Pig Girl.
Bud, I hope you kill plenty of cockroaches after printing my story.
Thanks for your comment on Conversation.
Thanks for commenting on "Light, Now," Bud, and thanks for the star!
Thanks, Bud for reading "Menthol." Glad you liked it. I grew up near the Dyckman side of Fort Tryon Park. The park was my escape as a kid.
I am grateful for your recent comments on "What Some Boys Do," Bud!
p.s. mixtapes on cassette! fuckin' aye! I've never burned a cd in my life and it is likely I never will. Keepin' it old school.
Hi Bud, happy to read your stuff and share feedback. I love your voice. I'm also real grateful that you took the time to read and give me insight on Bullshit Rodeo. I've recently read In Watermelon Sugar and Jesus' Son. Love 'em both!
Hi Bud, Hope you're staying safe in this hurricane. Thanks for digging up "Don't Grieve for Fish," and for such kind words. Much appreciated. I have another piece, "Your Last Rooster," posted yesterday, if you want to give it a read.
Thanks, Bud for for reading and commenting on "Muddy Creek." Delighted you like it.
Thanks for the read and comment on "Maalox" Bud.
Thanks for the fave, Bud! Appreciated very much.
Bud, thank you for your generous comment on my story "Honor Grade."
Hi Bud, Thanks for digging up "A New Tattoo." Your comments and star made my night.
Yeah, Misti! I got on here from reading that excellent poem of yours with "Taking your Kid to Sonic" gotta track that down, going to your page now!
Good to see ya here, Bud.
