from June 4: Looking Will Change (The French Problem)

(Afternoon and evening)

Third place is just at the coast. Because I call the digits.

True dreary for us, yes.

I have the point of the sea. I have the axe. Do you want a tour?

Apart from us, you arrived true.

Excellent. My health is dire, but we can’t pay the blockade.

We gotta get a school.

No, we need to rest in the parade of foolish shit.

Tell me slow.


Cool. Got it.

I’m bored of the new calendar…now I have a figure to dance in the details.


All you have to embrace are these lips?


After the public call for encores, ok?

Gotta work certain change.


This is another draft piece I read at the reading the other week. The June writing project continues with day-by-day research and word/phrase gathering. The writing and arranging will flow from that, but not bound to the individual days.

Great Times at Minás & a Draft I Read

You can't tell from that picture, but the reading the Sunday before last (time goes so quickly) was well attended and well enjoyed. Thanks to Chris Toll for getting me involved, to Mark Sanders for playing emcee, and to everyone who came.

Here's a piece of a piece that I read, that's a piece of a longer piece that I'm writing, that's a draft, and that I'm sure will change a whole lot before I feel sure about it...

from June 2: There Is Subterfuge
(The Catalan Problem)


Else the content of my parents hold us in highest esteem.

The allure of travels and travesties and germane good stuff.

You don't say! A block of flavors! Did you compress the bullets with cream of air?

Hey dolts! The city is a turtle.

Conduct yourself.

Assuage the salad of your spirit! Xo

Yup yup!


Oh my armor is the spy. A real gift of the era.

Tell the turtle of time.

Some running mascara.

Holy cow, the electronic Rebels of Canada were correct.

Transmit it!

Some running mascara.

Chris Toll and Jamie GP at Minás, Sunday June 6

I'm reading with the wonderful Chris Toll at Minás Gallery in Baltimore this Sunday, June 6.

Here's the details and RSVP on Facebook.

I'll be reading from a project I'm doing all this week (details currently undisclosed). Unless it turns out sucky in which case I have a bunch of other stuff I'll read. I'm guessing we'll grab a drink afterward... but where?
