Elusive Yet Permanent*

The internet, that is.

My friend, Rick, posted this poem the other day:

To get inside a woman’ head,
Work hard!
Think fast!

To get inside a woman’s heart,
Try not to make a move.

(This is copyrighted by Rick Mullin.)

I love it because I'm embarrassed to admit how true I think it is.

I wanted to feature him because he's recently had a chapbook of his work published and I thought you might like the chance to purchase one of your very own. When I wrote to ask permission to reprint his poem he told me that he's also doing a reading on April 4th at the Cornelia Street Cafe. I don't know exactly what the format is but he's the featured poet at Open Mic Night which starts at 6 (come before 6 if you want to sign up). I'm planning to check it out, if anyone wants to join me I'd love the company.

*Rick posted this poem then pulled it but thanks to the star function on the Google Reader I was able to get it back.


  1. I'm going to say again how incredibly jealous I am that you'll have an opportunity to meet Rick. I've wanted to meet this man for literally years, and if I weren't going to be on a plane to Alabama to meet Seester and Bo, I'd be on a train to go to this reading with you. Tell him I said HI!

  2. This Rick... me likey.
