A Nexus of Phantoms published 29/11/2013

it is the example of phonograms
of lost and compacted lenses
turning
within a charismatic “Fall Line”
or an “isoneph”
or what an avian would announce in Greenland
as a “Katabatic Wind”

Lenny Story published 27/11/2013

I was driving and I saw a TV
The dumpster diver inside of me
Arose from a long slumber
And compelled me to leap out of the car,
Screwdriver in hand.

By Ned Vizzini.

Jen Nia Mondo & other poems published

seed held up to the light

oh how I love those little bones

when the women paint her hands with henna
they dip the brushes into lemon juice
to fix the pigment and no-one has eaten
since sun-up

the sheep gather nervously

WYSIWYG & other poems published 12/11/2013

Service is full of moments

when children become cargo;
they are bundled and huddled

as the dunes of busted dishes
behind the china factory scroll by.

It’s a preview, really, only
orderless. Each city is seen

By Patrick Williams.

Naked in Front of Strangers #6 published 31/10/2013

We’re hanging out again
in hundred year old spaces, dark

for him and a gracious young
waitress good at humoring the lecher’s grin.

Arcimbaldo Revisited & other poems published 21/10/2013

And for the Plat de Résistance: an upward come-hither motion.
Hiving-off into milk bottles, the unbreathable
atmosphere. Left with the choice of one or both ears
to wrap in a handkerchief. Love offerings
of the blind or a word mumbled into a telephone, unbelieved
because unseen.

By Louis Armand.

America & other poems published

of those three
words I wrote
in an empty
second floor lounge
of the university’s
bluish gymnasium, wedged
between people swimming
and women prac-
ticing basketball behind
one gigantic curtain:
heard, but unseen

By Andrew James Weatherhead.

Drink & other poems published 13/10/2013

But how to paint it in     (the movement)

     labyrinth-trails in a sonical stormlash
       pronged overexposure of lightning
     a skybull stamping out spherical thunder

       The after-echo crackles off to sea

         traded in the City

By James Byrne.
