    Any favorite authors? Books?

    ee cummings, Charles Bukowski, Baudelaire, Jack Spicer, Jackson Mac Low, Aram Saroyan, Andrew Zawacki, J. A. Tyler, Shya Scanlon, Ben Brooks, Andrew Lundwall, Sasha Fletcher, William S. Burroughs, Mark Lamoureux, Mark Cunningham, Darby Larson, Sheila E. Murphy, rob mclennan, J. D. Nelson, Felino Soriano, Michael Bernstein, Michael Robbins, Raymond Farr, and the list could go on.

    I find it is most often the independent or lesser known modern authors whose works excite me the most. I like language that tries to break away from itself, and I admire those who can explore fiction in an abstract manner unapologetically. When lines between poetry, fiction, meaning, or absurdity start to get blurry—or are completely washed away—I am probably getting excited.

    Thanks for the note on "Camo." I have to keep checking back on older pieces to find who's left a note. I really do appreciate the notes. I'm checking out your work now.

    David, thanks for your comments on 'Berthier Door'. Had some good coffee that morning :) Glad you enjoyed!

    Eryk Wenziak – Jun 28, 2011

    Thanks, man, for your comment on "mourning." For such a short piece, that present/past tense thing has driven me nuts. I'm now confident that both can work, it's just what "feels" better.

    Robert Vaughan – Jun 19, 2011

    Thanks for your recent comments, David, on 3 Short Shorts. I am grateful.

    Eryk Wenziak – Jun 16, 2011

    Thanks for commenting on my two pieces, David. I see we have another fan of enjambment! I haven't heard that word in a long time. Thanks, man!

    Mark Reep – Jun 16, 2011
