HELP ME FIND THIS POET! someone was reading his or her book on the train this morning and i didn't get a chance to ask "Who is that author?" although i did glimpse some verse, enough to know that i want to read more. some of the lines i remember: "in order to be structurally sound you must subject yourself to measurement" and "there are gods here that love us, and they want us to fuck, are you ready? have i earned another story?" that second line is from a poem called "a guide for the world to begin." i've been looking online but i can't find anything. i hope this looks familiar to someone. i also noticed that at the end of a book there was a note describing how the author was using ideas from the traditional tarot card deck as inspiration.

Yup, Marty McConnell. The second poem is "The World's Guide to Beginning."
