Some Habits proceeds by way of a series of letters charting the dreams, observations, apologies, and epiphanies of an unnamed addressor. The poem is infected by the vernacular language of the Ozark mountain region, and by the cultural effluvia of the flat lands hemming the Mississippi River. In the manner of the great poetic epistles, Some Habits risks unknowing its subject. Who broadcasts? Who receives?

What People are Saying About This
“Some Habits is so inventively rich and tangly, so hilarious or outrageously sensual, it demands our lingering in it. What a love poem to the body, to somebody, and to the world!”
