At Times Like This, Tea

19 Comments 23 January 2013

The best in poetry (and poetic things), this week with Lyla Lindquist. 1 Art This afternoon while I sipped hot rooibos from a fancy gold-rimmed tea cup (Get on the bus, Gus.

September: Tea for Two (on Proper Sweet Tea)

17 Comments 24 September 2012

Some define the boundaries of the American south by way of the Mason Dixon line. Others define its lines by allegiances during the War of Northern Aggression. Frankly, I find both such delineations to be crude and lacking in nuance. No, I do not ascribe to traditional notions of defining the South. Instead, I reckon its […]

September: Tea for Two (the diary of a coffee quitter)

26 Comments 03 September 2012

I am a helpless, habitual coffee drinker. For the most part, I don’t drink yuppie, frothy coffee. No, I drink the black stuff, the kind that tastes like ash. I drink it like it’s a badge of American masculinity, I guess. My grandpa used to say, “real men take their coffee the way God intended […]
