Hello beautiful internet,
For the first major step in my transition I am planning on getting laser hair removal. I am really excited about doing this, but I am (perpetually) short on funds. Here’s where you come in. For $10, I will write you an epistolary poem (a poem in the form of a letter) addressed to DEAR HAIRLESS [YOUR NAME OR YOUR MOM’S NAME OR YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT FOR A POEM OR ANYTHING REALLY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO WRITE A POEM FOR]. I will email you this poem. I would love to do something fancy like handwrite it on a neat card and mail it to you, but honestly, I know myself, and I know what kind of promises I can keep and what kind I can’t. Emailing I can do. Mail? *makes wiggly hand gesture accompanied by ehhhhhhh sound*
SO. Here is the link to buy a poem. Be sure to specify your name, or else who or what I am addressing the poem to and if you would like the poem sent to an email other than your paypal email, specify that in the same box. All poems will be delivered within one week, unless something crazy happens.
All money will be used for laser hair removal. If I by some act of god end up with more money than I need for that then the money will be used for future transition-related expenses, and if I get really desperate moneywise, to feed myself.
Hi everyone! Quick update on this project.
1) I am still selling poems!
2) I got a lot more than I expected. The 1 week turnaround was a bit ambitious. I will get to your poem if I haven’t yet. The turnaround will be quicker once I get through the initial flood of purchases.
3) Thank you thank you so much!!!!! I’ve raised over $350 and have covered the first couple sessions for sure. I’m not sure how many I will need so I’m going to keep this going but thank you all so much. You are amazing.

REGARDING COLLECTED STORIES
Words add up like math, they multiply to form more problems. You don’t always get credit for original thoughts, the newness is the credit. Ask a question, write a book of answers. I don’t mind if they’re lies.
Just over a month ago I was given the opportunity to read an early pdf of the first issue of FRXTL, a zine edited by Lee Costello. As I looked over it I was struck by how similar its aesthetic is to what I am trying to achieve with LEFT. I wanted to find out more about the project, so I sent Lee some questions.
Lee Costello is good
