gnarled oak15

The final issue of Gnarled Oak has been compiled as online and PDF issues, available free at the journal’s web page. Titled Walking through Clouds, this is issue number 15. The editor has been slowly publishing the contents piece by piece over the last month or so, and now the issue is complete. I’m pleased to say it includes my short video poem “Crushed Bits” alongside the textual micropoetry and microfiction. Short reads for your lazy summer dayz.

“Crushed Bits” video in Gnarled Oak

Today, my video poem “Crushed Bits” appeared in online poetry journal Gnarled Oak. This journal focused on shorter works. You can see the publication page here.

The text of the video comes from one of my “Civilization’s Lost” poems, “Cold Fortress.” The imagery is taken from a World War II documentary. I was trying to make a connection with the socio-political events of the present day, but it’s up to the viewer to decide the success of that.

The new issue of Otoliths, number 47, was released this morning. Another amazing issue filled with visual and textual poetry of all types. It also includes a set of materials from me: a textual poem “The Queen’s Needle” plus a new video using a section of that piece, and seven stills from the video. You can view it all here .
