Lists that grows out of a thought

When I finish a project, my first instinct is to turn around 180 degrees and see what is there to be seen, the opposite of what I have been thinking—everything I haven’t let myself look at.

I would like to write:

  • A book that needs no binding, in which the poems can be read in any order
  • A book in which none of the poems are connected
  • A book of poems based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the series, not the film)
  • A sequence of poems about a character named The Matinee Idol, who appears in a Rufus Wainwright song
  • Some kind of prose work
  • A sequences of poems even more filmic than what I’ve so far done; perhaps script-like is where I want to go
  • My Casa Libre To Do List:

  • Finish writing new manuscript of poems
  • Finish Chicago section of LOCUSPOINT
  • Finish my term paper for class
  • Edit D. A. Powell interview
  • Read some books
  • Finish Minneapolis section of LOCUSPOINT
  • Not bad. Still time left for LOCUSPOINT today, maybe reading.
