Stuff on the Internet You Should Read

In no particular order:
My piece for Next Magazine on Lonely Christopher and his new chapbook Crush Dream, which is terrific, and which you should go order from Radioactive Moat (a BARGAIN at $6, including shipping). UPDATE: My copy arrived in the mail today–check out this gorgeous hand-painted cover:
Also for Next, I wrote a preview of my most anticipated books coming out this fall. It’s a good season for gay lit.
Over at Lambda Literary Review, we’ve got a slew of great poets who’ve recently been featured in the Poetry Spotlight, including Stephen Zerance (“Anne Sexton’s Last Drink” and “Lindsay Lohan”), P. Elan (“What I Will Get), Nick Comilla (“Montreal Sestina” and “Pure Form”), and Chris Emslie (“Blanks”).
Emslie also happens to be an associate editor for ILK journal, which I think is a great web publication, and which ran a gut-punching poem by Chelsea Whitton called “My Lover’s Wife” in its third issue. I read it months ago and am still not over it. Go read it (now!).
Poet extraordinaire Melissa Broder wrote a splendid review of Sophia Le Fraga’s I DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE INTERNET for HTMLGIANT, which then got picked up by the Poetry Foundation’s blog Harriet. O happy day!
And everybody in NYC should go to the release party at the Rubin Museum for Allen Ginsberg’s Holy Soul Jelly Roll, which I wrote about for LLR here.
MORE SOON. xx
