here are your links for national poetry month:
after reading my post from yesterday, i realized i completely forgot to mention that i heard back from Russell at The Camel Saloon on my recent poetry submission. he decided to pass. i like getting rejected from time to time. it tends to light my fire once again. i've written 2 poems today so far. i imagine there might be some more, especially if i get to drinking.
the New York Rangers reversed their trend from the last few playoff seasons and actually WON game 5 at home for a change. a 4-2 win that was fairly satisfying, regardless of how shitty the refs were. and believe me, they FUCKING SUCKED. and my team won. i can't imagine what the Flyers' fans thought of them. game 6 is Tuesday night in Philly. hopefully the boys can get it done in 6 (like i predicted).
i did catch a good portion of ROH last night. sadly, sleep won out for most of the show. but, thanks to the internet, i already know what happened.
as for tonight, it's my usual buffet on Sunday night for the television, plus i want to check out John Oliver's new show on HBO. i have no clue how i'm going to mix it into my schedule, but i figure i'll find a way.
the Yankees play the Sunday night game on ESPN tonight. i'll probably catch a few innings before the Sunday night shows start. hopefully they can get the win and win another series.
this weekend's weather has been much better than all those fucking experts on tv said it was going to be. i probably should have mowed the grass today, especially if we get all this damn rain in the coming week that the "experts" are saying we will. of course, i didn't, so i'm essentially rolling the fucking dice. i never win these games.
i'll probably be on here tomorrow after i mail some poems at the post office. i need to get my last submission (most likely) for national poetry month out there.
hope everyone has a great end to their weekend. or a less shitty one than you expected.
peace and chicken grease my enemies. i've got dishes to do, towels to put away and a dinner to make. the life of a poet taking care of his mother. you can just imagine what the next set of poems are going to be like.
