For Homework I had to write a blurb for a book that I like. My blurb is probably a little longer than the average blurb, but who's to say what the word limit for a blurb is? I'm starting to feel like when Hobbes kept saying "Smock" all through that comic strip, so I'm going to move on.

I Am In the Air Right Now

by Kathryn Regina

If this collection of poems were a person it would be the kind of attractive and intriguing person you might notice browsing in your local bookstore, or while standing in line to order a skim latte at your favorite coffee shop. Seeing them would make you wonder why you’ve never seen this person before, and you’d debate talking to them in case you never see them again. In the end, you would post a Missed Connection for them on Craigslist, and if you were very lucky, you would receive a reply that was, like Regina’s poems, filled with the strange meditations of a dedicated hot air balloonist, including musings on bears, Native Americans, boys named Pedro, puppets, and pollution.

we quietly played
a game called

if you had to kill

in this snack car
who would go first?

Did any of you happen to see the early cardinal
bloodying the fenceline yesterday?

If you didn't, you probably think I'm talking about a bird.

I need a new game for Wii. Having beaten the new Super Mario Bros twice since getting it for Christmas I have nothing to do but my homework. Maybe I'll get one for my birthday.

Oh, and Team Sad still hasn't arrived in the mail.
