The Poem Brut #12 – Flax published 13/10/2017

Ink and quill texts were photocopied and these copies were subject to live photocopier manipulations. This includes moving multiple copied pages whilst the machine is actively copying the work. These pieces were then manipulated using a scalpel and cut into. The fragments of paper were then collaged onto photocopier glass and copied, once the paper is removed from the glass it cannot be re-created. The same photocopier was also used to scan the work but a computer was used only to facilitate the submission and none of these texts have been manipulated digitally.

In the 12th edition of The Poem Brut series, new poetry by Nathan Walker.

(Pain) and other poems published 06/10/2017

even though feelings of pain
have the demands of abstraction applied to them
they are internally consistent as a set of corporate byelaws
and nothing like a rothko in the manner
in which they will relate to the market

New poetry by Calum Gardner.

Dada Doll published 18/08/2017

I reflected on how one of the almost banal motifs of the current humanitarian disaster, that is the refugee crisis, is the use of old containers – foundation blocks of global trade – to provide temporary housing (including most recently for unaccompanied children left unhoused by the destruction of the Jungle). I imagined making a contemporary dada doll out of a container – not within my power to realise actually – so settled on the spec instead.

Duos #3 – Non fast Colours published 12/08/2017

fashion orthodoxies collapse
in heaven, in the mist
the abandoned carpark
my excessive fear
of yellow, challenged
by police or by those other people
happy like me
in the carpark of death
I dream of
needle water
of history, passing
through that yellow river
of pissing, being pissed on
or off, constantly, as the case may be

In the third of the Duos series, new poetry by Richard Barrett and Sally Barrett.
