The BMA's own Doreen Bolger had some nice things to say about my recent Literary Death Match performance on her blog. Be warned; she calls my piece a poem, but it's really a short piece you can read here, at Metazen. Here's the meat if you don't feel like clicking:

"Mike Young won the round, but I was most captivated by Jen Michalski’s poem. It centered on an unidentified thing and its thingy-ness. I was with Michael Kimball when he pronounced her intangible rating as “off the charts.” While amusing, her words reminded me poignantly of just how much of our day-to-day conversation is preoccupied with things, not ideas or feelings, and in the final analysis, just how meaningless things can be."
