EZ P-Zine Issue #4 was recently released; the theme is “resolve,” and covers “closure, epiphanies, personal solutions, contentment, and new paths.” My poem “Rabbit Makes His Living” is included; it’s one of a few pieces following the rabbit character in his mischievous antics. You can check out EZ P-Zine in a number of formats, both print and digital. You could order from the Pyre Publishing website, or using the links on the Goodreads page. A print copy costs $5, while the digital version is free. You decide!
Here’s a taste of my piece below; the full version is in the zine.
Online poetry journal The Rye Whiskey Review focuses on works related to booze. I only had one poem in stock that fit the theme, “A Pirate Only Knows,” and fortunately it was good enough to make the blog. Today is the first appearance. You can read the whole poem here.
The latest issue of online literary magazine Streetcake was just released today. This is issue 59, which includes one of my poems called “Into the Breach.” You can check out the whole poem and the rest of the issue here.
Slipstream literary magazine just released Issue #38, the Water themed issue. It includes one of my poems–alongside a large roster listed in the notice above. This is a print-only magazine, so an issue costs $10–but it is a major outpost of “outlaw” poetry (for lack of a better term). You can check out some sample pieces and place an order here.
Waiting for my author copies to arrive, at which point, more on this publication.
Online journal Outlaw Poetry is something of an encyclopedia for what it says on the tin: outlaw poetry in all forms. Today four of my poems appeared in the journal: “This Drifting Into Air, Alive,” “Winnemucca, Nevada, 9 a.m.,” “Summer Movie,” and “Get Off the Stick and Rest.” You can read them here.
That time I read at the Christmas Poetry Jam at 15 Minutes club in DC on December 27, 1993. Looks like Silvanna Straw, Edgar Silex, and John Potash were also featured readers. And some guy named “Jeff Bogato,” which is actually me when people can’t spell my last name. Then there was an open mike, poetry games and a special guest. Of course, I don’t remember any of this, so it’s a good thing I saved these Washington City Paper advertisements.
Today, online poetry journal Midnight Lane Boutique published three of my poems featuring the character Ouija: “Ouija Gets Infected by Flarf,” “Ouija Leans In,” and “Ouija’s Vacation.” You can read them here.
Always an event when a new issue of online journal Angry Old Man is released, and the new #4 is no exception. Crammed with piles of cutting edge images, videos, essays and poems, it covers the international experimental lit and multimedia scene more thoroughly than anything I’ve seen since Otoliths. Impossible to fairly represent the contents in a brief summary; best just to visit the site here.
I’m very pleased that this issue includes six miscellaneous video stills, the “Silenced Scribes” video, and four poems: “Supreme Facts” (brief excerpt below), “Sparkle of a Golden Nose,” “IOU-topia,” and “On the House.” You can check out the stills here, the video here (yes, it’s been on YouTube for a while), and the texts on this page.
