Ugh, I need to wean myself off Montevidayo--the blog not the city. I keep non meaning to do this and then keep on failing. And this makes sense in many ways; although it's by leaps and bounds more stressful to participate in than, for example, The French Exit or Nothing To Say and Saying It, it's also full of lovely sparks and has been great for the poetry writing me: I could be wrong--influence can be difficult to pin down--but I believe that many poems of my past year would not have been written were it not for my Montevidayo exposure. I assume this is why I continually fail to cut the cord: the cord stresses but also feeds much nutrition.
