Advancing My Career

In the new Flarf/Conceptional issue of Poetry there is a poem by Nada Gordon called "Unicorn Believers Don't Declare Fatwas" which, in true Flarf fashion, is a mash-up of language culled from the internet, including from this blog. The beginning of the sixth stanza reads "This blog is dedicated to the individual / mystery of Hitler's moustache and my book of poems / to becoming a unicorn." It makes a great deal of sense to quote from this blog. As far as I'm concerned, this means that I was recently published in Poetry. Step one is now complete. Step two: tenure.
