Lyric

In the mail today: Sebastian Matthews' gorgeous chapbook Coming to Flood from Hollyridge Press. Sebastian was at Meacham a couple of weekends ago and we kept getting tugged in seven different directions, so we didn't get to hang out much. But he's a cool guy and I'm looking forward to reading it.

I've sold more books than I expected; I was actually prepared for selling none. Heh. So keep it up!

Remember, the holiday season is upon us. Dad doesn't want another pair of socks. He wants poetry. Specifically, poetry by Billy Collins. I mean, by me.

Well, maybe not, but poetry is better than socks, right? Right?

Hmm....

Shout out to Amy Blache for her sweet email and for not being, after all, one of my ex-girlfriends who cheated on me with a Satan-worshipping drug dealer.

Yeah, that was a great day, let me tell you.

But, hi, Amy.

A nice weekend and yet I didn't do anything. Maybe that's why it was nice?

Hi Paul,
If you'd like to email me a list of books you're interested in, I can keep a look-out at The Book Thing and mail them to you if/when I find them. Just let me know what you're looking for. Seriously, I'll hook you up.

Also, I already have a copy of your first book (love it), but it would be great to have a signed copy! Where shall I send the money?

It's cool that you're reading Sebastian Matthews...I'm currently in the midst of his memoir.

Glad you had a good weekend. Best, Ryan
