Otoliths #58 (Southern Winter 2020) was just released today, as usual packed with “wide ranging-array of wide-ranging material” (according to editor Mark Young)–all in an avant garde vein. Vispo, video, text, etc–essential viewing as quarantines continue through the fall.
I’m pleased to be represented with two “magic gravy” poems: “Gravy Binge” and “Rainbow Kettle.” These pieces are extension of my AI language experiments using a vocabulary restricted to the highlights of American magical thinking. You can read the full texts here. There are also ten pieces of vispo with asemic calligraphy, continuing a selection of entries from a scientific diary of an extraterrestrial colony world. These can be found here.
Issue 24 of Italian avant lit journal Utsanga was released yesterday, packed with great cutting edge works of asemic writing, text poems, vispo, videos, installation documentation, essays on poetics, and more.

Just go to their site and browse around!
I’m pleased to be included with ten visual poems from a series comprising a kind of diary from an extraterrestrial colony world, made with tape sampled imagery and asemic calligraphy. You can check them out here.
