Hey y’all, I have a poem up on Poem-a-Day today, which revisits the world of Krazy Kat - a blithe black cat with a white face in love with Ignatz, a mean white mouse. Props to , whose great book Krazy was my inspiration. And thanks to Tracy!

2) Please resist systemic incarceration, in manners open to you. There are so many pertinent examples of what opportunity can make possible in our society, post-incarceration. I don’t think of myself as a model of that possibility, only a metaphor for our societal dysfunction.

"A prize for poetry can baffle its recipient – when a private thing, a personal predilection that’s almost a whim, is rewarded. It’s as if an inveterate mushroom-hunter or lover of ice fishing were given a prize."--Sergey Gandlevsky

Really? I was the only one? Well, sometimes it's good to hear what others think, if only to figure out what we really believe in.
