Read full description of the books Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy:

I bought this book at a Barnes & Noble in 2007, a few days after reading "Bed" and looking at Tao Lin's blog. My dad and I sat in the parking lot looking at/reading what we bought. The book is pink and feels `sleek' and I had a weird feeling that it might contain sexual things I would want to `guard' from my dad's vision, while also knowing that it probably wouldn't contain sexual things. I have referenced the first poem, "i will learn how to love a person and then i will teach you and then we will know," in 3 `mission statement'-like papers (a poetry class, an ethics class, and contemporary philosophy). I read it aloud at the beginning of a poetry workshop I was `leading' once and the members of the workshop, mostly older jobless women who wanted to write mystery novels, looked at me confusedly at the end.

I think I enjoy "CBT" so much because it feels like the extremely well documented thoughts of a person observing himself in the world and struggling to determine what it means to exist in an arbitrary-seeming universe while simultaneously having feelings and preferences that seem necessary to write down. I like that there were lines that felt like non-sequiturs. It makes sense to me that a person who feels and thinks these kinds of things about existence would pay attention to non-sequitur thoughts, because they seem to have a neutral value/happen spontaneously, and are maybe `grounding' or `important' to write down because of that. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is, from my experience, a process of analyzing what things I think/do are `irrational' and what are `helpful' and trying to encourage `helpful' patterns of thinking to aid behavior. Seems like this book is a physical attempt at something like that. A lot of the poems have lines featuring a non-specific, vaguely romantic-seeming "you" (i.e. "the secret of life is that i miss you, and this describes life"). I like that. It made me feel like the person writing the book wanted to connect with other people.
