Issue 5 of online experimental journal Avant Appal[achia] went live today, featuring text and visuals. Among those are two of my Gonch poems, “Chaana Chaana” and “Hacan Laachnaggo.” You can check out the pieces here for a short time; eventually, the issue will be archived with only one representative piece from each genre. Not sure if Gonch will make that cut.
This is more work featuring words improvised from the letters in the phrase “All Gonch” in an effort to explore a potential future language that might arise after the decline of American English. No need to look too far for a meaning to “Gonch;” it’s just a nonsense word I made up when I was a kid.
