Sundrification, or The Unmade Bed
Today I am starting on my final checks on Thaliad. I only this afternoon grasped that Beth Adams announced on the Phoenicia Publishing blog that the book will be out "before the holidays," so I need to move quickly. I shall be reading it aloud once to check for sound and to make sure that there are no problems with the sense of the thing, and then I shall sweep through looking for metrical issues.
If you're on facebook you may know this news already since a number of people have been nice enough to share a link already--thanks to Julie Antolick Winters, Laura Murphy Frankstone, Luisa Igloria, Lynn Digby, Dave Bonta, and others. Another video of one of my poems by composer and videographer Paul Digby has gone up on moving poems.com, Dave Bonta's "on-going anthology of the best videopoems, animated poems, and other poetry videos from around the web." "In Extremis" is in my new collection, The Throne of Psyche. If you want to leave a comment about that, please leave one there, as I think the anthology a great project, one that takes time and judgment and deserves some appreciation.
I Interview My Visitors fame made a recording of herself reading a poem from The Throne of Psyche on her blog! I love it when people do this kind of thing. It really helps to have word of mouth and introduce books to a new set of readers. She made a post on Sunday and another on Monday for The Throne of Psyche. Thank you, Susanna. You may find the second part of the poem "Southern to the Bone" on her post, Rain is Rain is Rain.
And yes, that is the cat's tongue. She's awfully dumb and awfully sweet, that one. The other one is smarter but less sweet and bites me around the ankles if I'm not quick enough with the kitty food.
