I have long been neglecting the space of this poety blog. But, yesterday I posted some notable reads-- sequences/series long poems-- on my blog.

Also noteworthy is Poetics.ca online Canadian poetry discussion as well as a new community-type haiku site and Poetry Thursday.

Today I'm reading the interview between Butling, Rudy and Erin Moure in Poets Talk. I love this bit that Moure says about perception:

"...perception is about absorbing only what you're attentive to. And most people are only attentive to the expected. If you're attentive to the unexpected, you're constantly being proven wrong in your suppositions. Most people aren't used to that. They have a hard enough time being in the world without constantly paying attention to things that prove you wrong."
