B and I are off to Dallas today to meet/visit (respectively) my extended family. I think it will be fun--my Aunt, Uncle, Gramma, Cousins, and little baby Cousins are all wonderful, fun, and interested people; I think they will have a good time getting to know B, and she will feel likewise. So, you may not hear from me for a few days (though you may). I hope to go swimming in my Aunt or Cousins' bean-shaped pools.
Bad Poetry News: rejected by Barrow Street, very quickly; poems sent back by Paris Review in their recent mass purging.
Good Poetry News: wrote a little poem about a dragon.
Everyone check out next week's issue of Publishers Weekly--I did a Q & A that's in there.
