Yesterday I accepted what I've been wondering for awhile: 24 Hour Breakfast is a translation project. I generally and very loosely look at poems through the filter of "poems that describe the world/experience in a way that reveals the fantastic" and "poems that describe the fantastic to reveal the world." I prefer the former really, but then there's translation -- a third thing? not a metaphor for what is, referring constantly back to the "source," but a new complete thing that's neither a description of the world or an analogy for the world.

I've got a bunch of readings this fall: NYC, Austin, Dallas, Lincoln, Baton Rouge, New Orleans (maybe) & Portland. Maybe you live in one of these places? You should let me know, maybe?
