The last thing that made you smile
Watching my partner try not to have a goofy smile while I took his picture this morning.
My recipe for linguine with clam sauce has evolved into a secret.
The last thing you wrote
Well the last poem I wrote was a poem I finished a week ago, called “What We Did, Who We Did It With.”
Your favourite city
That’s a tough one. My favorite would be a city that I know the ins and outs of, in which case St Louis where I live. Fave city I’d like to know better: Toronto. City in which I imagine my life could be utterly different forever: Venice.
What you’d place in a time capsule
For something from this century, I’d put a couple CDs, Lorde’s latest and a Brad Mehldau CD. Then I’d add a good translation of Chekhov’s plays.
