Guess it's Winter

That's the view from my window. It's kinda nice in an I'm-Glad-I-Don't-Have-To-Leave-The-House-Unless-I-Wanna kinda way.
It's pleasant while listening to Quadrophenia for the first time in 10 years or so.

Good Morning.
How are you?

Of Jason Schneiderman's first collection of poems, Sublimation Point, Tom Sleigh writes: "Grave, sweetly questioning, often irreverently funny, Jason Schneiderman's poems about love and death, the Holocaust and family history, self knowledge and self deception give this book a range and tonal variety that is extremely rare for any poet, let alone a first book." Schneiderman's poems have appeared in such magazines as Tin House, Grand Street, and American Poetry Review, and in such anthologies as The Penguin Book of the Sonnet and Best American Poetry 2005. For his work, he has received fellowships from Yaddo and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. He is currently a Chancellor's Fellow at CUNY and teaches literature at Hunter College.

Michael Broder received his MFA from the Creative Writing Program at New York University in 2005. His work has appeared in 42Opus, BLOOM, Brooklyn Review, Caffeine Destiny, Capilano Review, H_NGM_N, La Petite Zine, Painted Bride Quarterly, roger, Softblow, Unpleasant Event Schedule, and Word for/ Word, as well as in the anthology This New Breed. He is working on a doctorate in classical studies at the City University of New York and teaches in the classics department at Brooklyn College.

Priscilla Becker's book of poems, Internal West, won The Paris Review book prize and was published in 2003. Her poems have appeared in Fence, Verse, Open City, The Paris Review, Raritan, and Small Spiral Notebook; her essays in Cabinet magazine, Open City, and Poets &
