I wanted to promote xTx’s debut chapbook He is Talking to the Fat Lady, but this slick little sucker sold out in 2 days flat. Congrats to xTx & Safety Third Enterprises for such a speedy sell. I read this last night & rolled in its gristly & surprising moves, words like “You are big. Very big. So big with your girth. Your infinite waistline. Your head that hits the sky. I cannot comprehend you as a whole, just pieces: fingers, knee, shirt sleeve. I am tiny. Very tiny. So tiny with my shortness. My baby legs. My head skimming undersides of coffee tables. You could put me into your mouth and I could live there.” Right. Like that. Nice. Maybe shoot Safety Third Enterprises an e-shout for a digital second-coming of this, I think they’d hear your collective voices.
