Eileen Myles

was amazing at Bailey/Coy. Weird minimalist Q&A after the reading, though, and I didn't get to ask when
the new prose work is coming out. My favorite poems: the "Dear Andrea" series, sculpted out
of her ex-girlfriend's obsessive phone conversations with *her* ex-girlfriend. They perfectly capture the feeling of talking to someone who isn't listening, whose attention is fragmented elsewhere, and whose affection is directed at a long thin line.
