Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson

I like the nine dancers and the big fat protagonist. I like nine. I like nine errors and Linus Slug. I am now writing a chapbook reworked from 2008 and it's all because of the nine. The new chapbook is called The Circle Line. Nine line poems. Each poem a different station on the circle line. Using bits of Dante. And lotsa other sources. There are nine circles of hell too. 3 sets of trinities. The third gender three times. And the third way with three different people. Nine. Don't we all love a good nine. Thank miss Jeanette Winterson who hid books under her bed cause as a child she was only allowed books bout the bible and such . . love live nine . . and Jeanette Winterson  ..

I see a lot of thumbs . . it feels like nostalgia . . but it's too flighty . . the welcome signs are pay per use scales . . a Jay Z look-alike. . . depression for dummies . .  Tao Lin but not Tao Lin . . all the buttons on his wee shirt gone. . Spring . . stein . . at Dunkin Donuts . . a warm pool of vomit . .

I think this is from The Nortre Dame review, but I found it via goofle (I mean google).

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
