Legendarium"Its like watching the best movie ever, says The Author, but you can
only explain it to others using sign language.
Might as well show photos to the blind.
The Author onstage: her soft hands in the pockets
of a green panda hoodie. Black emo glasses, short hair.
Any and every unassuming student.
Onstage, instead of a spotlight, a movie fragment: Recycled news footage
of fans in line for 6 am signings and midnight releases.
The camera pans
over breathless, expectant, bespectacled
faces in robes
and wizard hats.
When you have a story in your head for this long, it becomes everything.
Shes drawing faces in the margins of notes, faces shes been drawing
for well on twelve years. Shes written
about as many pages.
Its not the fame I want, not exactly. Not in this industry
where pop is king and your novel is only worth

Sung on a Southern SaturdayAint no streetcars to the Southlands
the Lowlands, the Badlands
no more trains run through the Flatlands
at least not anymore
But down at the crossroads
the suns gettin gone
Rhythms got her red shoes on
Improvs shinin up his horn
Flows slidin up to Jazz real slow
she dont blush, she been around
Bluesmans tunin his steel guitar
(won from the Devil in a rigged game of cards)
he smiles his smile, egret White
--girl, can you play the blues?
