yeah you're gonna be just fine writing that book. this is fucking brilliant.
Thank you for enduring and digesting this mess for us. Honestly it makes me feel despair.
In response to your poem, I felt my own poem bubble up. I love writing poetry but don’t do it often enough.
Do whatever the fuck you want with your body and face in space and time
if it liberates you and brings you joy especially if it fills you with a glow
that spreads to your every cell
and reminds you of your aliveness
Thank you for inspiring a little poem (which I shyly shared), and thank you, as always, for the obvious effort and thought you put into each newsletter and poem.
I love that your writing makes me think more broadly and deeply and that I feel connected to a community, small yet mighty, that is radically opposed to this bizarro part of our culture.
This is amazing. Your inbox poems deserve to have a book of their own eventually.
I'm going to be first in line to buy the book that I hope you're writing that I also hope this is all going into. Till then, I wait with baited breath for every new newsletter issue. This one did not disappoint!! But counterpoint, is there a support group somewhere for people who are so sick of hearing anything - positive or negative - about that person and their family, that we just need to exist in a place where we never need to read their names or see their personas again? Asking for a friend. Ok, the friend is me.
who are the guys who want to "f" that?
