BLAKE BUTLER said...

i'll send it for borrow regardless. doesnt matter. i always forget who i lend shit to.

have you been reading povel at all?

Michael Kimball said...

I have copies of the Edson and the Purdy. Will trade for anything you want to send back my way.

brandon said...

i read some of povel

i liked it but the forgot about it

i feel like i only forgot about it because it wasn't 'right' at the moment, that it didn't suit what i wanted

i know i'll read the whole thing eventually, probably absorbed in it

BLAKE BUTLER said...

brandon, that's how i read it too actually, in little sporadic bits for a while then forgot then read the second half almost all at once. it kind of is maybe supposed to be that way? something.
