Curse the computer!
So I haven’t added anything around here since the middle of August. I took some time to just work on the poem on my own terms and not worry about its public face. I was just about to do my first update in more than two months, but then my computer totally died. I have the poem saved in another place, but my have lost a couple pages I did in the last few days. Either my operating system needs to be re-installed or my hard drive is totally dead. Keep your fingers crossed for the former for me. What better way to be reminded of the tenuous materiality of the writing process though.
Watch for a new update on the poem in the next few days, once I figure out if I need to re-write anything.
