I Am Leaving You, You Are Leaving Me
I figured that since I just listened to this song eighteen thousand times in a row, I should probably share it with you, my chickadees. It's a beautiful video and the song so cathartic. The song makes me wistful in an everything-is-about-to-change kind of way. Plus, I'm a sucker for harmonies and strings.
This evening I finished Alex Lemon's book Mosquito. It's incredible, AND (and!) it has a really thought-provoking introduction by Mark Doty, which was a pleasant surprise. I think my favorite poem is The Pleasure Notebook. Seriously, poets, everyone, go read this book. (Next up on the reading list, Dark Things by Novica Tadic.)
