I wrote a poem for Paul Ebenkamp after reading his poem THE MESSENGE. The poem I wrote is called OUR TENDER URBAN CORE and contains the line "feeling kind of Eyjafjallajökull in-a-trance". The E-word is the Icelandic volcano that erupted this past spring. I don't know how to pronounce this word. I'm giving a reading on Sunday and would like to read this poem. Maybe I should sub in a new word? Mount St. Helens? What's the ethical code here? I ask the void.

Keep Eyjafjallajokull. Why Americanize things because they are unpronounceable?
