Three untitled visual poems published 11/07/2017

Of an orange grove, the bees visited the flowers

At midnight, a bee hit the window of shed and died
An eyelid stung by a bee, only the pain tastes honey

The murmur of traffic filtered from the honeycomb

A buzz in a small town will be torpor by the mead

New visual poetry by Hiromi Suzuki.

Poetry is an Opportunity published 06/07/2017

Poetry is an opportunity, even a challenge or askance, to be complex, ambiguous, playful with the fact of daily normative, comforting language, and when its used just to make a straightforward statement, with line breaks, I don’t mind of course, not a big deal, but it does surprise me. It’s not as though a lot of people read poetry, if you’ve a message you need to get out to people clearly and widely, perhaps another medium might make sense?

A man walked into a bide with me.

Philip Guston, in (Pretty Much) His Own Words published 27/05/2017

The seaweed farmer from last evening
swung into the Belvedere again tonight,
this time asking for a Liverpool Gin
– citrus not watermelon, he specified
as he pulled the moonless key
to the alphabet lock
from his frayed trench pocket,
the hurricane lamps loud behind his glasses.

New poetry by Ranjit Hoskote.

Manifesto Eye Of Signs published 05/04/2017

1
In their masks and disguises, the idle companions of his table represent him as conversing with serpents.
2
Some imitated lovers: they even created a magical group, seldom laughing.
3
The rest dispense with stories of my beloved: in meditation they gather proverbs from nature.

A new poem from Paul Holman.
