Here Come the Waterworks

“Here come the waterworks” is in most contexts an accusation that someone is about to cry profusely in order to manipulate people. But since anyone who is paying attention ought to be crying profusely all the time, I do not believe this kind of manipulation exists, and so, contrary to appearances, I am not accusing anyone of anything by using this phrase, least of all myself. Rather, I have written a series of works about water, and I wish to present them straightforwardly.

Microphone Lessons for Poets

Illustrated throughout with diagrams both helpful and fanciful, Microphone Lessons for Poets is partly real instructions about microphones that people can use, and partly a feminist manifesto that people can’t.

Microphone Lessons for Poets is a fun little read, and could even prove useful for poets making the rounds in the open mic circuit.” —Broken Pencil
