The new fridge, Defenestration and Caffeine Destiny
Anyway, the new fridge will arrive on Wednesday. At last. The one we have came with the house when we moved in 7 years ago. Even then it was already old. It grows a slab of ice in the fridge compartment every summer and part of its rubber seal hangs like dried twig from under the door. We suspect it's the reason our electric bill has been so high this year.
• A picture I took at the Vienna Central Cemetery is now up in the July 20th issue of Defenestration. Behold the man. Or should I say, the stiff.
• My poems, Possessions and Ceremonial Spoon are now up in the Fall 2007 issue of Caffeine Destiny. Really thrilled to be sharing space with Mary Biddinger, Ryan Collins, John Gallaher, Anne Heide, David Lehman, Reb Livingston, Rebecca Loudon, John Morrison and Susan Stewart. Did I mention this is one of my favorite 'zines?
Recent acceptance and a half:
• Blood Orange Review accepted my poem, And God said let there be economy class passengers— for an upcoming issue.

• Was happy to finally hear from the editor of Anemone Sidecar — thought they'd closed down and had quite given up on it. They're interested in taking my poem, fortitude: a reportage — thing is I've already sent it to Counterpath Press and, according to the guidelines, if submitters don't hear from them in three months (August 25th for me), then we can consider our work rejected. The AS editor said she'd wait and keep her fingers crossed. Here's to hoping for a rejection.
Anyway, if you're still waiting to hear from Anemone Sidecar — you ought to hear from them soon. They're busy catching up with the submissions.
