"I was so ahead of the curve, the curve became a sphere
Fell behind on my classmates, and I ended up here
Pouring out my heart to a stranger
But I didn't pour the whiskey" - This Is Me Trying
It began with a Facebook post, which sounds very improbable even as I type it now. Chiwan Choi, the gifted poet and author of one of my favorite collections The Yellow House, posited that those of us who...erm...responded...uh...favorably to Taylor Swift's Folklore put our words together, publish a collection of essays, poems, etc. inspired by our collective favorite pandemic survival strategy. I mean, beyond masking, distancing, and Pfizer.
I've drafted two poems, a hybrid piece, and an essay. Keep an eye out next fall. That means you, Dr. Taylor Allison Swift.
