"She has the most beautiful body my hands have ever seen."

"It will make you feel young again" --The New Yorker
  < july 2004 >
Hope your summer is going well. Your loyal Blender-Keeper has moved into his new soon-to-be-swinging bachelor pad, he's got new snappy glasses and a much better haircut, his back is much better than it was a month ago, the weather has been great, and the Land of Cleves awaits him.

Who's treated you the best in love, and what did they do?

This month's Blender Feature is an actual e-mail dialog between the Blender Keeper and Anne Lapin, a gal from work who has been the guiding force of his recent make-over. It's a conversation about saying and hearing "I Love You" and it's good to have friends you can have that level of conversation with.

Read, Enjoy, and Wear Sunblock,
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

Untitled - Akash
Akash has a marvelous subtle hand with metaphors...I'm absolutely jealous. (If only the gift could be applied to titles...there's been an untitled Akash work on the front page every month since February!)

I Make Myself - JD
Taking our chances with teenage romances.

hands - blakey
This month's top of the page quote.

Air Force 1 Love Letter To Nancy - Ronald Reagan
Submitted by Erick Spangler. Reagan had a surprisingly deft touch with letters...I'd also suggest checking out his letter to his daughter Patti when she was a baby.

Saving Grace - B.K.
A nice tribute to the recently music great Ray Charles.

getting the mail - chris
I'm always captivated by more human ways of measuring time--in a dream I started measuring seasons in sunburns. In this work's case, cigarettes.

Wicked Ways - Ali
A good poem bookended by great opening and closing lines.

Side Road Bluntness - The Rocket Powered Vampire
A new voice on the Blender...I love the roar and clatter of its opening lines.

Sticking my neck out - jwb71913
<insert joke about 'taking it slow' here>

no title - cryingshame58
Nice rough and tumble nature to this "another silly poem with no title".

Inconvenient moments - wolfscreamer
Thinking on the beach.

thinking about home - Violet
More shore thoughts. (To my chagrin, I didn't follow my "at least get my feet wet" ritual last time I was the Jersey shore...)

Love Epiphany, 90210 - CordovaGirl
What do dreams know?

I'm Moving Back To A Stupid State - Misti
"punk rock lyrics posted at xanga"

A collection of mostly cynical thoughts on marriage, submitted by RennieLorca.

Everyone Says 'I Love You'
An e-mail dialog about hearing and saying that loaded phrase.

Heart on Sleeve Corner
210 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
