Link to my poem, “Passing through Galveston”, just up today on Deuce Coupe, if you’re interested. I really like this online lit journal, and their sister publication, Rusty Truck. Some great “underground” work on both sites.
Pre-release reviews for my chapbook, The Breakdown Atlas, are now in from poets Sascha Feinstein, Maureen Sherbondy, and Norma Ketzis Bernstock. If you’re interested, you can read them on my poetry blog at the link above (they’re pretty good!). The book will be available for sale next month.
Link above for some poems of Conrad Aiken (1889~1973), including “Chance Meetings”, “The Dance of Life” (sexy!), “Discordants”, “Evensong”, “Miracles”, “Morning Song of Senlin”, “Red is the Color of Blood” (WOW!), and “Zudora”. I love love love Aiken. Also, here’s a link to the complete epic, “The House of Dust” (just in case you have a couple of hours to kill):
The new blog is now up and running over at blogspot. You can follow the link above, if you’re interested. It’s easy to connect with Networked Blogs and Google Friend Connect. Hit me up, if poetry’s your thing!
