The Swamp Aesthetic Press

I'm going to eat Korean food tonight with a high school friend and see a play! Then I'm going to go home and blast music really loudly while cleaning the bedroom so that when M comes home after a rock show, he'll stop frowning when he says "We live in squalor."

Want to help me clean the bedroom?

It's mainly a heap of skirts and sweaters that needs to be un-heaped and hung in the closet.

I haven't written a poem since the end of December, it makes me feel like my brain isn't working properly. I'm not filtering out the good things?
