I believe that God made sex as a kind of unsolvable
Rubik's cube so that we could have something to do
while we're killing time here on Earth. --Eric Bogosian
Blender of Love Digest August 2000

Burning Summer

Record fires are sweeping throug the Western United States. National political conventions are failing to set fire to anyone but the party faithful. And so it goes.

It's been a cool summer in New England, a little warmer lately.

Someday I'll think of something better to write here than the weather report!

Anyway, good poems this month, and a really excellent piece under "Featured Artist Review". Enjoy.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper
