Seattle and Tao Lin

Here's the last poetry recommendation. Tao Lin's new book, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, is really good. I like it a lot. You should buy it.

Here's a bit from my favorite poem in the book:

today is tuesday; email me saturday

[...]from here i know these things: that a hamster is a lonely fist

that a poem exists to dispel irrational angers, that i want to hold your face

with my face

like a hand


And for the record, yes, I'm the guy who "enjoys existential despair."

  2. That's very interesting title for a poetry book. Do you know if it has anything to do with cognitive behavioral therapy? I love poetry so this might be worth checking out.


Thanks for your comment! We love hearing from you.
