Daylight Savings.

It’s official; winter is starting. Ug.

But, good news. Flattering news, actually.

Poetry Magazineasked me to write an essay for its section, “The View From Here,” about how poetry has impacted my life. Past essayists include: Alfred Molina, Daniel Handler (aka, Lemony Snicket), Christopher Hitchens, Lynda Barry, Lili Taylor and various other folks in the world of arts and letters.

My favorite essay in the section, the one that inspires and scares the shit out of me, comes form Neko Case.

It’s called “My Flaming Hamster Wheel of Panic About Publicly Discussing Poetry in This Respected Forum.”

Read it, it’s amazing.
