The Rollipoke News no. 8: Secrets and Glimmerglass Film Days

A mystery photo from The Rollipoke News, no. 8

All you Rollipokers, the newsletter goes out today... with some news about a ms. of formal poems, a forthcoming poetry book, a forthcoming novel, and a film option. And an account of the frolicsome past weekend with filmmakers, film subjects, and a photographer. If you're not on the list of subscribers and would like to be, look in the right-hand column for sign-up. Or jump here.


  1. Very exciting secret news indeed! Lots more news to look forward to.

    1. Yes, I hope all my little seeds and saplings come to fruition.

  2. I read the recent Rollipoke with great interest! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    (We are in the process of buying a house, so I am behind on my blog-reading and blog-commenting. Pay stubs, bank statements, cancelled checks, letters from landlords...René Descartes didn't have to work this hard to prove his existence.)

    1. Yes, congratulations on the house-acquiring! It is a trial, and then all houses want to die (ours has a huge I-beam keeping its 1808 fibers from tumbling into the cellar) so it will boss you around afterward. But it is a great pleasure to live in a house that you can do what you like to and in.

      Thank you for finger-crossings!


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
