tuesday hijinks no. 10: Printers Row Book Festival in Chicago, suitcase postmortem
1. I packed my red shoes but did not wear them. They make the photo because they go well with the ARC of Because It Is My Blood.
2. I bought the print at the festival. The verse reads:
Lady Tulip, stately dame,
From across the ocean came;
Liked this country very much,
Although she only spoke in Dutch.
This puts me in mind of a few lyrics I like from a Bright Eyes song called “Road to Joy.”
I could have been a famous singer
If I had someone else’s voice
But failure always sounded better
Let’s f*** it up, boys, make some noise.
