FISH
tropico

invisible splash
from the frill
or the hinge

diving board
above turquoise
with a hint of

pyridine + lemon
opposite palm trees
to cervix shells

Environmental Art & other poems published 09/12/2017

Nightclub toilet stalls remind us of the depth of human suffering. Why don’t they have plaques? Shopping is the most important thing you can do. If you sleep in the treetops you must be prepared for the unexpected. E.g. a storm, a bat etc. The designer jeans I wanted had some paint on them. What is seldom sought, always proffered, often disregarded and religiously metrical? It’s not what you think. You know I filled the oil lamp again tonight. When will I learn? I fear the rebels. I fear the regime. I fear consumption more than anything. And the sweet, noxious smell of every Co-op.

New poetry by Ian Cartland.

Dubuffet Attica & other poems published 20/10/2017

atmospheric nails that are nails
and not folks from the ink bubble
firm in the stalebate of process (some pseudo

virginal continuity) lacking evidence is
one way of going about it. Another is
soon who won’t come (may balance

commit us to dying long distance)
what for glandular vices may be
detrimental may be gravity spoken in

New poetry by Emmitt Conklin.

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.
