More Than a Cryptogram Press

What happened yesterday? The sales woman at Victoria's Secret tricked me into buying something. That's all I have to say about that. I don't feel "duped" per say. Just a little mystified.

What else happened yesterday? Oh yes, office dialogue:

Scene: One tiny office shared by two people, with no window that opens.

Office-mate: Sorry, my lunch is stinky today, I'll try and eat it as quickly as possible.

Me: Maybe you shouldn't bring a lunch that you know, upon being microwaved, will disgust and alienate your office-mate.

Office-mate: [Silence]

Me:...[Sigh]...Just kidding.

Office-mate: [Sound of getting up to microwave fish based dish.]

End Scene.

Oh shit, the new Octopus is up: http://www.octopusmagazine.com/issue10/main.html

80 poets, ladies and gentlemen. 80 poets. If you find a poet you like on the site & you want to find his/her poem again, the only way to do so it to play Memory. And the only way to understand what I mean by this is to go to the website and see for yourself. While you're at it, why don't you read a poem by Tomaz Salamun. Or, say, C.D. Wright? or 78 other poets.

This issue is what's up.
