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.

from Suicide Bridge: Book Four published 07/10/2013

Bowen understands text as
annotated suicide note. He looks
not unlike R.L. Stevenson. Consumption
written into the contract. Unnatural
fires of collapsed lungs.
Said to be an Aitu, a white ghost.
He haunts 16 Chepstow Place he haunts
the Suicide Club he raises all the demons
of this town.

La Bestia & other poems published 15/09/2013

we may think we are the suncrowned roosters
but the flint of our every step
ignites and mummifies the cold cut pollos
we are:

like a newborn artifact—
undiscovered ringent species—
one lime green shoe
still left on.

By Sammie Clifford.

What is the style prevalent in our on age classical & other poems published 05/09/2013

The body on hisher beauty
& the bodice on ours, others, pressed
Brief care awhile, a little further again others pressed
All that is wife
All that is infinite – in the passing hour, it seemed
Long & useless elegant gloves
& weren’t all
These careful interests & conditions just eva

And this one fag framed
a bunch of what-if-they

long last his fantasies

from The Hell Creek Anthology published 17/08/2013

My sweet den near Taria Nirvaan
Became a center for all sorts of creatures,
Singers, poets, dandies, artists, nobles,
Where we spoke Uzbek and Spanish, Mongolian, English.
I wed Graf Itemirus, native of Navoi.
We went to Bissekty. He poisoned me, I think.
Now in the Mozoriston bone-bed, overlooking
The shore where young Tiktaalik dreamed new worlds,
See what they scratched: “Grafinya Itemirus
So’rov abadiy tinchlikuzbe.”

By JT Welsch.

Pan. Door. Ah. & other poems published 09/08/2013

but because in love we imbue the value
of goodness, of workings in life
that possess nice sentiments- we think making
love as linguistic reference will mean
that idealism would manifest in the real.
but this is only talk: everything we only say
is only talk, of no more veracity
than a mindless touch- but lucky you
elucidation means we are more than just
automata, even if this is only due to that
human language is seen as the apex

By Ji Young Lee.
