Mentholism

My next collection of poems is called Mentholism. I'm surprised that it's almost sappy in parts (or at least emotionally available). But the poems are most interested in creating new patterns, new locutions. I've been feverishly writing and rewriting it these days. I'm very pleased.

Mentholism refers to a set of assumptions, values and beliefs based on the practices of smoking menthol cigarettes and moping about.

Many poets are afraid, now, to be emotionally available in their work it seems.

A burning question ensues: Is it really true that menthol cigarettes leave tiny holes in your lungs? And, as asthmatics, why do we smoke? ;-))
