My OPEN LETTER TO WATERSTONE'S, published here a while ago, will be reappearing shortly with a new introduction at Theron and Todd Moore's seriously excellent St. Vitus site ( ). I mention this as an excuse to plug one of the best poetry magazines on the net or anywhere--one of those (along with my Beatnik and Brian Fuggett's Zygote in my Coffee) that people should check out first before they start complaining that small press publishing and writing has been in a moribund condition ever since Bukowski kicked the bucket. It's actually really healthy, and I'm thrilled to have a minor role on the scene.

Anyway, have a look at St.Vitus. You NEED it in your life, people.
