#DexterNotes The victims are bound by plastic wrap. But so is he in his kill room, from ceiling to floor. They are in this thing together.
lit_hum Every poem has the right to ask for a new poetics. - Anna Swir
#DexterNotes I remember the 1st time I watched this, I kept wondering why Dexter didn’t kill his dad. Threat is subtle in the flashbacks.
#DexterNotes Rita works in hotel management, but she doesn’t know how to complain to her own neighbor to shush the dog’s noise? Hmm.
#DexterNotes “Love, American Style” ep. jumps the shark when Dex uses candles to lead Coyote to the van. But candles fit: symbol of romance.
#DexterNotes The “Coyote” couple exchanges a vow, a lesson, before Dex goes for the kill. They’re literally “bound” in plastic matrimony.

@MikeMehalek That’s probably the strangest and most crust-warming +K scenario I’ve seen yet. But it’s so true: I can’t stop lovin’ pizza.
@Zoe_E_W That’s hilarious, Zoe! Anytime you can make Drill Sergeant whimper, an angel gets its Airborne wings.
@Gabino_Iglesias Great! It’s like the big book of little things… so much going on in there I bet it’s a challenge to review. So thank you!
#DexterNotes Rita as Tomb Raider? As understandable and as unbelievable as Dexter in law enforcement. It’s all about disguises and desire.
True story-> I tried to catch a mouse inside a plastic cup today. Not quick enough. The rim killed it. This also killed my cup.
@shadowflame1974 Take notes. Keep writing forward as if you’d done it. You can always go back later…getting to the end is harder.
@PaulaCKirk No, YOU rock! Thanks for checking out the full tweet-o-rama and laughing right along with me.
#DexterNotes An opposition of blood brothers. Dexter = fluid, the splatter, the slide. Ice Truck Killer = solid, the empty vessel, the ice.
@laura_aw Thanks for the tweet about The Gorelets Omnibus! Your grin is contagious, because now I’m grinning too. Peculiar, indeed! Grazia!

@fairwoodpress Congrats on selling your first novel to @torbooks! That’s huge, Patrick!

#DexterNotes We root for a killer not because he is a vigilante, but because his voice is in our heads, translating all events. Dex is Us.
@Rocket_Pixie Hrm. It’s not letting me DM you. Msg went public but I’ve deleted it. Ah well. Twitter has a dark passenger.
@uncannyvalley I’m totally with you. Gonna study Dexter ep. 1-5 over the next few weeks, then the latest, which will be new for me.
@Rocket_Pixie No spoil, no spoil! I am ramping up to the latest season which I haven’t seen yet! (I bet I know what Deb confesses though!)
#DexterNotes Slow down and look in an extreme closeup - you’ll see the violence inherent in everyday life. Even breakfast is brutal.
#DexterNotes The first kill is always like losing virginity: awkward, comical, determined, sloppy, traumatic, out of control.
#DexterNotes When a cop character says “Catch you later” it means more than it seems and is subtle foreshadowing.

@GeoCamFuller Thank ye! Some say it’s about Klout, but I prefer to think +K stands for “Plusk” which is just popeyespeak for “blush”.

@ewazoo23 … maybe their proverbial “lightbeam” only reaches so far. But it’s still a valid navigational system. Even so - good article!
@ewazoo23 Nice essay but that quote has me puzzled. Authors are lighthouses in a sea of the infinite, not “scalable” providers of content.

Got a text wishing my wife a happy birthday. Printed it and pasted into a blank card. I’ll do the same here if you tweet sth for Renate.

@s_a_check Thanks for the Special K-bump. I’m not a kloutist, but I appreciate the cool comment about my story very much!
Today someone said “Oh, look, the sun is out!” And for one brief moment I thought they meant OUT like the snuffed wick of a candle.

@JustAfterSunset Thanks for the comment on the “Luke, Warm” poem, Stephanie. Wait, you said you smiled… >shiver<…do you know a Luke??
“Luke, Warm”: she drops his frozen bloodcubes / into a tumbler of vodka / smiling at the bone-sharp crackle / of his rocks in her glass
@wdprescott Twinkies never expire, so maybe the Kid is already a zombie cowboy desert? But it’s true — he loves to slurp brain frosting.

@ewazoo23 Research, interaction, and inspiration. Also a creative playroom: write poems composed of people’s handles, responses to hashtags.
ewazoo23 attention all writer friends: could you tweet me about why you use twitter? want to show my class what writers think abt twitter as a tool.
@Emwings So true. Negative space is everything. The universe is right here: ___________.

@davidbainaa That’s impressive! Now get off twitter and call amazon immediately, or you’re going to be suffering w/o for a few days.
@davidbainaa My 1st kindle screen froze when I updated the firmware with a file from Amazon. Called ‘em and they wouldn’t replace (peeved).
@theJessMcHugh Nice post, Jess! Best argument I ever heard for thinking “inside the box” ;-)

@DavidKM No, but an illiterate chef doesn’t know the difference between “broccoli” and “e. coli”.
Never trust a restaurant that can’t properly spell the items it serves. Especially if the error appears on a sign or even their brand name!
