Another Great Epigrammatic Moment in American Literary History

Morgan,
I finished reading all the poems I have found of yours on line and elsewhere and I am excited to buy your new book when it comes out. I havent found many prose poem journals, im curious, what made you decide to start one? What attracts you to the form? Are there any writers writing exclsuively in the genre? (I know of Edson & sometimes Simic and Hass) A friend of mine said: start french then go to english. Congratulations on your new book and chapbook.

"I was born my papa's son
A wanderin' eye and a smokin' gun
Now some of you would live through me
Lock me up and throw away the key
Or just find a place to hide away
Hope that I'll just go away
I feel alright – I feel alright tonight

I'll bring you precious contraband
And ancient tales from distant lands
Of conquerors and concubines and
Conjurers from darker times
Betrayal and conspiracy
Sacrilege and heresy

I got every thing you wont or need
Your darkest fear, your fondest dream
I ask you questions, tell you lies
Criticize and sympathize
Be careful what you wish for friend
Because I've been to hell and now I'm back again"
