You know that by the end of February,
you’re going to need something to get you out of your
post-vortex-won’t-it-ever-be-spring blues.

Well this is it.

Ideas you can warm your hands on.
A room sexy enough to make you sweat.
Cocktails that banish blizzards

and you, steaming up the open mic.

In order to survive New Jersey, AIMEE HERMAN wrote poems, carried Lou Reed’s lyrics around like they were a bible, and dreamed about moving to Pluto one day. Now, Aimee has an on-again-off-again-will-they-won’t-they love affair with Brooklyn while teaching writing and literature in the Bronx and making sweet music with David Lawton in their poemusic band Hydrogen Junkbox. Aimee has a novel out in May through Three Rooms Press called “Everything Grows”.
