Spencer Madsen has a Girlfriend
Just kidding, he’s still single, very single. Ladies get un-metaphorically ‘on top of that’. Try not to get too on top of that. In order for Spencer Madsen to continue his online presence, we need him a little bit miserable. Or he could lie and say he’s miserable when he isn’t. Basically if you find a way to get Spencer happy keep it on the down low.
What’s Spencer been up to this fine month? I’ve been covering him a lot this month. That’s because he’s been prolific, been busy. I think he’s taking part in those “Occupy Wall Street” protests. Perhaps we’ll see future poems which merge the concerns of 99% of humanity alongside his need to have a girlfriend. Maybe the two are related but generally speaking I think rapid income inequality was occurring before Spencer became single. I’m just saying, not really knowing. Plus he made it out to the ultra-exclusive Bleepy Bloop fest, which I heard was way off the chain, like it needed to get re-attached to the chain. Think he met the famous writer Tao Lin, the OCB (Original Chill Bro).
Spencer explores fall in his untitled poem. He proclaims only those of the opposite gender are aware of the changing of the season. I’m assuming that’s because Spencer has been extremely busy working on his follow up to “A Million Bears” which did fucking fantastic and got all this sweet blog coverage from people like Steve Roggenbuck, the 2011 Poet Laureate, a few others, and of course, me. Then, after the exploration of his innermost feelings he does an extremely in-depth analysis of the potential meaning behind Chaucer’s work. A lesser man would not attempt such things, but Spencer Madsen is a greater man. Indeed, I’d defend Spencer’s right to the blog-death to include such probing questions as ‘the fuck does that mean’.
According to Spencer he stays up late into the night working diligently on a masterwork so positively mastering it will render all other forms of writing obsolete. No longer will be able to call this poetry, it’ll have to be called “Spencer Madsen” to acknowledge his skill with our great language. Indeed all previous poets will have to find day jobs instead of living fat off the land from their enormous poetry profits.
I think Spencer will try to avoid rendering all other poetry obsolete. For remember, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. God said that in the really large chapbook he published called “Guys, who told you you were naked?”. Spencer Madsen probably shall create another chapbook creating even bigger ripples in this crazy pond we call ‘the internet’ where we ‘surf’.
Besides the poem Spencer also wrote a strange, mysterious letter to my dad Sam. I don’t know the meaning of this letter. Actually I really like it. When I finished reading it, I felt a little dumber than Spencer Madsen. The letter is elegant. Reading it I believe even more strongly in Spencer’s ability to write deeply weird stuff.
