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.

earth the story they’re breaking
legible only if intact

sold to speculators prospectors
petrochemical lords

nor ignored
in the orogenies

Duos #7- Hana Pera Aoake and Mya Morrison Middleton published 17/04/2018

This guy told me that kicking all the sex workers off of K road was a good idea. He said K road had nothing to offer except crime and sex. He smelt like stale whiskey, mothballs and nervous sweat. He said the TPPA was a good idea. “The People’s Pharmacy of Aotearoa.” capitalism and mental illness. I don’t understand how you can’t think about how expensive my medication is going to be.

Duos #5 – McMullan De meyer Brel is dead published 27/03/2018

You see yellow snakes in the water.
You feel yellow snakes in the water.
What do you feel? You feel fear.
You understand that you have waited too long.
This is not what you wanted, you say.
But it was, she says. Look around you.
You know what to do.

In the fifth of the Duos series, new poetry by Thomas McMullan and Tineke De Meyer.
