Some Detours Thanks
To Karen McPherson (Sketching Elise), for poem-caching me in her Poetry Box-- and how cool is a poetry box, right? Are there poetry boxes in your town? Check out the scheme here: http://www.utteredchaos.org/.
To Ruth Horowitz (Giving Up the Ghost) for reading #32 aloud at home.
To my agent Linda Epstein (The Blabbermouth) for saying she was savoring Detours like a box of chocolates.
To Scott Landfield at Tsunami Books for carrying the chapbook.
To Sid Miller, editor of the Burnside Review; Shira Richman for chapbook design; Sarah Grew for sharing her piece "Asters" for the cover (I know I've said it before, but it's worth repeating); to Blake Butler, final judge for the 2011 Fiction Chapbook Contest.
And to the impromptu sign-makers who keep me on the lookout for detour signs, even when I thought I was over that. And to my family, waiting almost patiently at the sushi place, while I took more photos.
