Actual Exchange.

“Hello Boo”

“Hey, how you doing?”

“Good, you”

“Just alright,

Don’t got a light though, sorry.”

“No worries, somewheres in here”

Draft written by Sam Sutlive on April 3rd, 2017 around 11:00pm after exchange happened.

This draft written between 7:16 and 7:27pm on April 4th, 2017 for April 3rds poetry entry.

-I read a review for a book of poetry turned prose by Alice Notley called Certain Magical Acts. It sounds like it will be good. I am having a hard time imagining a four page poem for now,  or even a book length poem.

-Flannel wavering

from jumping too high

cat tail PAUSE


-Tall women rolling their shoulders to hip hop.

-The host was charismatic. Little and fierce her expression was written across her face.

-Forehead splitting,

love is overrated honed into horizontely stripped pants

-communicate to a point, get there it is all in a nod point to point we got this.

-You watching their eyes wander, how much do you read into what you see?Into what you see that they see?


neck muscles too tight

hiphop here to stay

-wolf hats spinning can not see

-Image poems do not work but the sailors boat sinks as we fall.

-Double hearting this tight neck, solid letters sounding zip zip orroo.  I love the waviness, their reflections, that  structure on the right, how it mimics the one on the left yet all together different as the same. I feel its wetness and fogginess. Something at bay that is about to breach and touch me to wash over me.

-Ideas flow through the guys mind. He is writing a book, publishing it he says. You do not need a religious leader breathing down your neck he says.

Thank you,


Sam Sutlive.
