After I Die

I write only to report that my poem "After I Die"--which is basically autobiographical if you could write the autobiography of a psyche minus its ego, with the id and superego still kicking around--is in the summertime issue of The Baffler, which I have loved and wanted to be in the pages of for an entire decade. You can read it online, right here.

While you're at it, go read about, or read an interview with, Helen DeWitt, whose completely masterful, wry book The Last Samurai is about to be reissued by New Directions: Publishing Can Break Your Heart & The Trouble of Rational Thought. I agree, even just conceptually, with the title of that last one, yes.
