You Can't Stop It, You Can Only Hope to Contain It Press

I can't sleep. Sometimes when I can't sleep and I have already skimmed the science and technology sections of the NYT, googled various images of large vegetables, tried to write a poem, and glanced over Silliman's blog to see what he thinks about Project Runway, I look at the "free" section of Craigslist Denver. These are some of the things being offered for free tonight:

1) "used peanut oil"
2) "toilet"
3) "cassette tape duplicator"
4) "free over sized stuff animals. unwanted stuffed animals"
5) "puzzles"
6) "lava rock"
7) "4 bone colored toilets"
8) "cat stuff"
9) "Playtex breast pump"
10) "horse halloween costume":

Exciting things are brewing:
"Love Among the Ruins is pleased to announce the publication of its first 2 chapbooks: NO OMEN by Heather Green and AIM YOUR ARROWS AT THE SUN by Ernest Hilbert. Each book appears in an edition of 250 with striking letterpress covers and handsewn bindings.

We're having a reading/party to celebrate the books at Melville House in Brooklyn on Wednesday, Nov. 4th at 7pm (145 Plymouth Street in DUMBO). Please come by for free drinks if you're around NYC."

Should I remind you closer to Nov? Well, anyways, sneak peeks of the chapbooks:

This is also happening in the quasi-distant future:


Don't you think antique perfume bottles are weird?:




I do, especially when they're placed on creepy cloth.

Get the horse costume! And the lava rock. Actually get all of them, and they can be props for an avant garde play.
