In Parentheses Vol. 2 Issue 4

One of the poems I had published online with In Parentheses got bumped up to the print edition. It’s a little post-colonial satire I wrote while listening to some “jungle style” swing music from the big daddy, Duke Ellington. (Specifically a piece called “The Mooche, which is always worth a listen.) In any case, you can purchase the PDF or print version of the issue, which as well as poetry contains a whole load of contemporary painting and graphic art, at the In Parentheses magcloud page.

Clarion Issue 16

AGNI is the literary magazine that usually springs to mind when you think of Boston University, but it’s not the only one. Clarion is a small print journal that has been produced by the BU Literary Society since 1999. Issue 16 is now in print and features “275”, a poem that I’m quite proud of. Its inspiration was a gigantic Alphonse Mucha painting entitled “Plamínek naděje”, meaning “Flame of Hope”, depicting the last moments of an exiled Bohemian church father as he looks out across the Baltic sea. See here for subscriptions (currently the only way to purchase the magazine). That’s all for now!

You can now view three of my poems online at Forge: 297, a translation of Baudelaire’s “Le Flacon”, 311, an ekphrasis poem based on an Emil Nolde painting, and 319, a little sketch of some robins fighting outside my window. All three are in the print edition, which is available at lulu.com.

I have three poems in the latest issue of Burningword. The first is based on a Sérusier still-life, the second on a painting of a rabbi by Marc Chagall. The third is my translation of a Rimbaud sonnet about Ophelia. You can pick up a digital or physical copy here.

The 22 Magazine

The 22 Magazine

This magazine is awesome. They dedicate most of their space to graphic art, but they also do a lot of multimedia stuff, mixing art with writing. Their latest issue is free to download, well worth taking a look.
