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.
