You did so much more with those fragments of internet-speech than I thought were possible. I love your meditation on walls and dreaming and metaphors. Brilliant. Glorious! You made meaning out of the fragments of my internet-life. I GET IT now!
So glad you're still alive! I strongly believe that making similes is (like) a feminist act.Paul sez: I don't just LIKE this post, I LIKE A DEAD SNOW QUEEN this post.
Laur K, you totally saved me, because I hadn't written my poem yet -- a perfectly-timed intervention! Haha, good one, Paul! This is reminding me of this "like" article by Stephen Burt (who will be at Rutgers on Thursday! but I'll be in Raleigh :( giving a reading :) ). Anyway here's the link:http://poems.com/special_features/prose/essay_burt_like.php
I like this, and making similes as a (like) feminist act. And Paul's comment, and Lauren's intervention, too. I like how catching up on this blog after a weekend of little Internet feel social!
