Another quick one just flew up at Queen Mobs: link. Even includes a tiny interview at the bottom.
Hello all! It’s summer today, and here‘s a summer evening poem written some years ago when I was waiting to come to America. Kathleen my lovely wife donated one of her photographs to the effort. Incidentally, you can find more of her work, and even procure her services for weddings, family shoots and more at parenthesisphotography.com. Isn’t that cool. More coming in the next day or so. Buenas tardes!
I have the good fortune to have encountered indulgent editors in Really System; they just published the longest poem I’ve yet had in print. It’s actually something I wrote for my brother, as an attempt to rehash a theatre piece we were working on. The subject was a gloomy, old-man Alexander the Great, transplanted into a gloomy, old-man seaside town in the south of England. In the original incarnation, Alexander is swallowed by an apocalyptic storm. In this version, which I wrote in verse, the apocalypse is more in his mind than in reality.
Toronto (or anywhere?) based poetry magazine The Rotary Dial just put its January issue up on the Kindle store for one dollar. If you have a dollar and Kindle and would like to combine the two in order to read one poem I wrote and several other poems that other people wrote, click on this. Thanks!
