One poem and five asemic works in Angry Old Man

AOM 6 coverOnline experimental lit journal Angry Old Man released Issue 6 today, with another great roster of visual, text and video work from across the spectrum of the international literary avant garde. I’m pleased to be represented by one text piece and five asemic calligraphy works. The text piece is part of a new series of experiments involving a very restricted vocabulary intended to mirror the kind of language invention of an AI transaction robot. View the text piece here, and the asemic calligraphy here.

“Watching that Fire” published in Rat’s Ass Review

RAR sum 2019

The Summer 2019 issue of Rat’s Ass Review was released today. Lots of great work here in what would probably be called the “outlaw” vein, so I’m pleased that my poem “Watching that Fire” made the cut for this issue. You can read the full piece here. My piece is the third from the top, only cause it’s arranged alphabetically by author.

“Rabbit Toilet Fantasy” and four other poems published in Ramingo’s Porch

5-poems-ramingo

Today, outlaw poetry magazine Ramingo’s Porch published five of my poems: “Rabbit Toilet Fantasy,” “The Desperate Ones,” “Another Hit for History,” “Plastic Surgeon Voyeur,” and “Bag of Bones.” You can read them here.

I didn’t actually intend to get published in this journal so soon after the last time; it’s a happy accident. I thought I was submitting to their special print issue with the the theme “Sex.” So I rounded up the dirtiest pieces I had and sent them in. Turns out that “Sex Issue” was released last month, and its deadline closed last August! It’s available on Amazon.

It may be worth noting that “Rabbit Toilet Fantasy,” partially seen below, is written from the perspective of the trickster rabbit character that showed up in a few poems. “The Desperate Ones” features Casanova as a character.
