I’ve begun to practice writing gratitudes each night as both a reflexive means of taking stock of those daily moments of grace and joy, as well as to trick my brain out of an inherited tendency towards depression and anxiety. My poem, Pandemic Gratitudes, is up at Dispatches from Quarantine today, & comprises gratitudes written during the first six months of the SIP order while working FT, raising a teenager, and trying to stay sane.
“oh digitized meat war
we’re coming for you”

Open Call for Submissions for The Uplift
What is it like for our community to live through the COVID-19 pandemic? Starting this week we’re dedicating regular air time for local-area poets, writers, songwriters, musicians, & spoken word artists to feature their reflections on the pandemic, as shelter in place stretches on for at least several more weeks. How is this collective experience affecting individuals, and how do we understand what is happening to us?
Submit wav or mp3 recordings of poems, short stories, micro-fictions, songs, & short essays to firstname.lastname@example.org. Selections will be broadcast on KZYX on Friday mornings at 9am, throughout the shelter in place order.
