a good day...

freshly opened...

the four color letterpressed spines on the clamshells...

basking in the goodness.

the presentation copies have gold silk spines and the lettered copies have red silk spines. these things are unreal looking, and the trade paperback sofcovers are glorious as well. they are all signed and the watercolors inserted and the manuscript broads, cds and all else are ready to go. looks like everything will start shipping at the first of the week. thanks again to everyone involved in this fantastic book.

I hope every one involved is proud.
It looks very well done.

And I'm looking forward to holding
my copy for the first time.

V for Vendetta

I was on my way to school.

I got the mail. I opened the cd,
listening to it on my way to class,
driving slow... a rock in a stream.

I don't remember if I made it to class on time, but it didn't matter.

The world is
once again as it should be.

For those keeping track at home:

A for Anarchy

also, I'm curious which poems were in your hardbacks...since they are all different and unpubbed anywhere and all new and fresh of the machines...

. . . I'm curious which poems
were in your hardbacks

the smoking ruins of winter blown trails

- Transcending the everyday.



- Like a rabbit punch to the head.

those are the same poems i have on my broadsides.

just kidding.

at work now so can't quote the titles at this moment, will report back later.

great stuff, guys.
as the only person on this planet to have met the both of you (and that includes each of you as well) i am lucky in that i can discern a specialness from these letters. these guys are like this in real life. it's fantastic!
