a friend is trying to convince me to write a sestina for submission in the McSweeney's sestina issue. i told her no, i mean, really, c'mon, NO.

i was telling Tom Devaney about it, how the mere IDEA of trying to create and compromise and create compromise to compromise to create was too much.

he said, "sounds like a side chapel, 'after church meet me at the sestina!'"
Tom is right in more ways than one, as he usually is.

he then pulled out a Carl Rakosi book and read "O SESTINA!" to me, which is a great poke in the ribs to the form!
