chasing pigeons

kendra grant malone and i are siamese twins attached at the ass. we have poetry books coming out together in september from scrambler books. we have both had chapbooks from mondo bummer and ml press, we've had ebooks from happy cobra books, and been in countless other lit journals together.... and now it is happening again with kendra's new poetry ebook from bear creek feed called chasing pigeons makes me feel more powerful

i read it at the airport waiting for a flight that kept getting delayed and delayed. when i finally boarded the plane it seemed like a plane from the eighties. there were those really old televisions that came out of the ceilings like they have on bus tours that elderly people do. i stared out the window at the wing of the plane and saw a sign bolted to the metal which said "translating... something... conductor access panel". i forget now. i looked at it so many times and now i don't know what it said.
anyway, i was talking about kendra's poetry ebook. here is what i said in a personal email to kendra about it:
i read your ebook in the airport waiting for my flight
it was awesome reading it that way
i highly suggest everyone else to try it
it seemed like i wanted your sad little lonesome world so badly
because i was in a noisy crowded lonesome one
you and your puppy hairstyle modelling

if your brother or sister, daughter or son is in the 4th grade and needs to pass art class, i will provide drawings of your choice for a small fee.
