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.)

that poem, The Pleasure Notebook...all I can say is wow. I think I need to read that book now.

I'm thinking of starting a bi-weekly thing on my blog where I talk about someone whose blog/writings/music I really love. And maybe ask them a few questions.
I'd really like to spotlight you on my blog, because the poems of yours that I've read and everything else are really brilliant.

I hope to hear from you. :]
