Joe Robinson over at Hamkicker was kind enough to collaborate with me and write some music for Deer-Dusk of an Evening.  Give it a listen!

These Type of Complaints

Q. This is your specialty?
A. My practice involves falling out, leaking and hurting in women.

It was just trees at the time

The saddest words I've ever read in 22 years of scoping court transcripts.  Shit.

Regular Fools

Wild, crazy-ass things are churning at the Keranen abode.    In about a week, I will become the stern-looking woman you see below, tending her bees with all the calm seriousness I can muster.  Bees don't like excitement.  They prefer mellow.  Okay. 

In the meantime, though, I'm engaging in frenzy.   Every day this month you can find me (and 84 other fine poets) at the Pulitzer Remix, each of us posting a poem a day "found" in a Pulitzer prize-winning novel.  You can find me by name or under the book title So Big by Edna Ferber.

Also, under the category of frenzy, the migration season has begun.  Mary will be taking off mid-April to work in Idaho at Craters of the Moon (To the moon, Mary!) and Tom will be leaving five days later to brew beer outside of Denali in Alaska for the summer season at 49th State Brewery.

I plan to take a nap in May.  A long one.
