Poem Brut #34 – Three asemic poems published 12/05/2018

Asemic writing is either the ancient soul
of our ancestors bubbling up from the unconscious,
or it’s the multi-dimensional light language of the stars,
dropping in through our blasted crowns.

Duos #8 – Urban Dictionary (a language) published 03/05/2018

the most beautiful man
the cure to the world’s unhappiness, sorrow, guilt, greed
can make you laugh, cry, and just kiss him until your lips hurt
the greatest thing to ever happen to anyone in the world
especially me

A language that others may see as being spoken by people with low intelligence
A language that only really intelligent people know how to speak correctly
A language that, if spoken, will get you more pussy than you can imagine
A language that is mostly made up of consonants and phlegm

skip eating breakfast entirely
just coffee and a cigarette

The 8th edition of Duos series new poetry by Frédéric Forte & Christodoulos Makris

Picaro & other poems published

Suddenly slipping like something sliced it’ll be gone, this screen, against which I hang. This screen pressed across every curve and flat of me, this screen, cooling every inch. Like a slice, sudden, it will part. It will be gone and the corners of my mouth will spread, both the two corners of my mouth will open, they will rip, deep into my cheeks.

And of extremes how can we speak but through the approach. Of white, can we ever see it full. I am, something and done, I am, oh something and done, I am something, in it and done, and it’s uttered not a single word at all.

New poetry by Theo Ellin Ballew.

Ore published 20/04/2018

earth the story they’re breaking
legible only if intact

not hoarded
sold to speculators prospectors
petrochemical lords

nor ignored
in the orogenies
of daily new/s

New poetry by Susan Barba.
