Bad Singer by Tim Falconer

A Bad Singer Playlist—Guest Post by Tim Falconer

  “Writing about music,” Martin Mull quipped, “is like dancing about architecture.” Part of the problem, of course, is that the reader wants to hear what the writer is going on about.

What Can Poetry Do by Matthew Zapruder

Company by Kevin Connolly Bloom says it’s about erasing others, digesting them, spitting them out as you. Really it’s more about smothering yourself, your shaky lines, knowing in advance they’re unworthy of the next bloom, next fool in line — to think there really are people who think about this, All The Time. Think about … Read More
