Thanks for WOTM. I appreciate it. I don't want to fill out a questionairre, as I've filled it out about 6 times before, so here's a poem I made myself write for this occasion. Due to a lack of inspiration and an incredible amount of homework/work, I really don't write anymore, so I don't plan on being around these parts much anymore. I'm sure I'll pop in once in awhile though. Thanks everyone. (Saadia, we must get in touch)


Upwards, somewhere near the
cold mountain, a moon, a fawn,
an indistinguishable something.
Our train winds around the
coast, i try to empty the sea from
my pant pockets and my coat.
A reindeer pendant is pinned to
my lapel, across the aisle a man
is thinking about a haircut he had in the
past, crooked curtains across his forehead,
pull them shut and his mind is lost.
I tug the scarf around my neck,
tighten the grip on my knees,
the train rolls around the
coast and the tracks stay in
place.

Eleanor, i remember you
more so as a time of day,
when the moon looked like a
mustache, always an ocean in
your kitchen, the sink always
filling-a hushed Russian accent
covered the table while i was
swimming, I was
s
w
i
m
m
i
n
g.

In water color paints,
the ocean that
covered your kitchen floor. salt,
it was all salt and coral, it made
for pretty christmas presents,
tree root vessels, capsized
carriages;

"do trains still have conductors?"
(me)

...
(everyone else)

congrats, I love you but you know this. you're a gem of a writer. I don't think I'd have stuck with it without you, not to make this a full on circle jerk or anything. haven't read this month's work yet but obviously it was enjoyed.

the rest i'll tell you in private. I hope you are healthy. you know how to reach me

New nominations thread is up. However, we can leave this up for a little while longer as it wasn't given the fair amount of time.
