OT

I should write a poem about overtime and bureaucratic blues, but I think I'll fix a sentence in my novel instead.Word of the day: frippery, as in, "I am not wearing my frippery today because we are having a SORT OF casual Friday at the office, and jeans are okay for anyone contributing a buck toward our FUN FUND."wwwphoebewilcox.comSee More

Do Redheads. . . ?

Sometimes I like to google a word or phrase to see what people out there in the world are thinking about it. When one types, "Do redheads," into Google, one sees a list like this:1. Do redheads go gray?2. Do redheads have a higher tolerance for pain?3. Do redheads have a soul?4. Do redheads have a higher tolerance for drugs?Apparently redheads don't go gray, they go blond, and then white, and it supposedly takes a long time to progress. Also, they're more prone to Tourette's Syndrome than…See More

Three Poems Written

Staying up way too late for someone who threw a lot of wood around in the rain today. It was:a.) exhilaratingb.) wetc.) a waste of time and just another dumb chored.) a mission from Gode.) all of the aboveAnd I wrote three new poems today. The first is all brand new and the two others were half-written a few years ago, but fixed up just now. I've started my bombardment process. Bombardment = Submission. I don't submit to literary mags. I bombard them. How else do you think you'll ever get…See More

Give me what I want for X-mas

Am I:a. Selfish and greedyb. Too exhausted to care whose stocking gets stuffed w/whatc. Confused about what holiday it isd. Freaked out that my kids are calling me a witch and trying to kill me by slapping me with a cloth napkine. Looking like a psychotic elff. So glad no one broke his or her finger in the most recent sibling skirmishg. Ready for a six hour nap-a-thonh. Blessed with the manly hands of a logger, thanks woodstoveSee More

Home Sick today--my own Private Thanksgiving

Had great plans for Thanksgiving that were completely foiled when I woke up dizzy and nauseated. Battled that for half the day, did manage to throw a turkey in the oven, drag wood in, keep fire going, nap, and--afterwards--get caught up on just the right amount of reading. Drinking fluids thinking maybe I was badly dehydrated? Now I'm having turkey, reheated leftover mashed potatoes and a cut-up apple in bed. It's a simple feast but very good; I roasted the turkey breast down, and it was…See More

She Captures the Castle

 Here I am, age ten (?) in a collage with my cat, Brook. The Irish castle battlements are slightly obscuring my groovy knee patches. The island above is in the River Shannon and the soy sauce and candle sticking out of it are courtesy of my cousin's kitchen table.www.phoebewilcox.com…See More

To Play or not to Play?

Should I spend a hundred dollars on lottery tickets like my friend with the fancy red Audi does?a.) Only if I enjoy feeling like a total jackass when someone in Idaho wins the Pennsylvania jackpot. (And by the way, I happen to drive cars until their once-luxurious accessories, like the sun roof, have to be opened with repeated hard jabs of a pen to the operating button--and then you have to cross your fingers that the thing will close when the rain starts.)b.) Only if I'm feeling very…See More

Can that Joker Write a Book?

Once in a while I'll meet someone who says, "I should write a book about my life!", meaning that they've been through so much--had such ups and downs, twists and turns, joys and torments, that they feel they should put it all down on paper to entertain the rest of us and make a million bucks. If the person I'm talking to doesn't happen to know I'm a writer, I smile a little Mona Lisa smile and think whatever private thoughts I'm thinking--as to whether or not I believe they could pull off…See More

Discovery of a New Literary Journal

 It's been a while since I made any concerted effort to try and get published, so I just discovered this journal, Antiphon, online. It's fairly new. I think I'll send them something.Also, I recently saw the movie, Salinger, and boy would J.D. Salinger be mad if he were alive to see it! God, talk about having your dirty laundry exploded out into the street.…See More

Went to see Joy Harjo Read

I got to the Blairstown, NJ Poetry Festival late in the evening because I had house painting to do during the day, and the dirty dishes in my kitchen sink were on the verge of engulfing the universe. Joy read that great poem about kicking fear's ass, "I Release You," and also from a memoir. I bought a couple of her books, including the memoir, Crazy Brave, then went off to a little side room to read my own work at an open mic. Nobody bought my book, but maybe a few more people will…See More

The Fruits of Your Labors

 You never know what the fruits of your labors will be. They could be:a.) minimum wage and a couch encrusted with cat hair.b.) a stale-smelling motel room and a Social Security Disability check.c.) Gay Pah-ree and beautiful, superficial peopled.) utopia with giant silver beetles that you can spread towels out on for sunbathing; antelopes that whistle "Dixie"; lentils and brown rice for dinner every night of your life.e.) a date with Britney Spearsf.) a cat o' nine tailsg.) slavery in a…See More

I Get Subjected to a Lot of Pop Music

Today was a lot of purple-painting (the room is like a grape cavern), doing dishes, running hither and yon, paying late bills with my phone. Where do all these people get the time to do anything? I just renewed Madame Bovary the third time and I'm not even on page 50 yet. I have a stack of books next to my bed that are all at about that stage. That's why I have to be THE LUNCH BREAK NOVELIST. Because I'm BUSY. And I only watch two TV shows. Project Runway and 60 Minutes. I can't watch TV while…See More

Black Mold Girl and her Country Music

 Is she always tired because:A.) She stays up too late and naps at odd times.B.) Because she is far too productive for her own good.C.) There are mold spores crossing the blood-brain barrier in little canoes.D.) Her brain synapses are crying out for Seratonin.E.) Book promotion has finally driven her to the edge of reason.F.) She forgets to take her iron pills because the mold spores are working on her.G.) Chinese food. MSG.H.) Let's just call it chronic fatigue syndrome.I.) Hurricane Sandy.J.)…See More

LOL! Maybe my NEXT mansion will be in Beverly Hills. :) My mom worked all over -- Warrington, Doylestown... Bristol? I think she had some sort of training (as a caseworker) in Perkasie. Ah, PA... Don't ask me why. But, the old Pennsauken Mart and Cherry Hill mall (NJ) just leaped into my head. Get out!!
