Some notes:

  1. I usually have some notes at the end of these mixtape posts, but I’m kind of out of thoughts today.

  2. I’m a freelancer, and I’ve had an avalanche of projects this spring, and, honestly, I’m behind and don’t have much energy to extend to casual writing.

  3. Oh, yeah. This is so casual.

  4. Here’s something of note: I’m publishing a poem every day throughout April for National Poetry Month. It’s probably only National Poetry Month in the States and not here in Canada, but I’m adopting it anyway. I’ve missed writing poetry, and this has nudged me back into it. Here are my first two poems for the month:
    Logarithmic Speed Trap
    What the heart forgets, the spirit will return.

  5. Happy National Poetry Month, and happy new mixtape!
