“Taking Home the Pictures” and two other poems in Anti-Heroin Chic

Very pleased to report that online journal Anti-Heroin Chic published three of my poems today: “Taking Home the Pictures,” “Ouija Gets Bent,” and “Sorry No Obi.” You can read them here.

The lead poem comes from a cross country road trip back in the 90s with two of my best friends. I believe we were in El Paso when the TV showed footage of OJ Simpson escaping police in Los Angeles. For some reason that seemed kind of funny, but a couple weeks in a Metro Geo will do that to you.

The Ouija piece is another of that series featuring the eponymous planchette as a “real girl” having metalingual adventures. I wrote “Sorry No Obi” after listing a compact disc for sale on Discogs and realizing that descriptive phrase would make a good poem title.

I’m pleased to report that online journal Outlaw Poetry published three of my poems today: “Cosmic Convenience Store,” “The Clover Trick,” and “Discount Radio.” You can read them here.

The first one features Ouija, the metalanguage planchette engaged in some intergalactic communication–part of a series of pieces featuring this character. The others are more or less surrealistic rants about something or other.
