This is nearly a month late, but I’ve been struggling with a photo I bought of Harold’s hearse (from the movie Harold and Maude) and finally finished it today. Was pleased to get accepted into Moist Poetry Journal, a queerish journal and feminist space started by Han Vanderhart. This particular sequence of poems was guest edited by Jennifer Funk. Check out my poem or ALL of the wonderful poems on the Moist Poetry site. Moist Poetry publishes a single (or sometimes double) poem three times a week.
Sometimes less is more. Sometimes I can’t believe in language. But all that really matters is the pencil, the brush, and this moment. Check out some of my other crossword poems and art in my blog. You can also navigate by the categories. Thanks for visiting.
Another crossword poem/drawing. It’s made of graphite crayon, pencil and washes. Check out some other recent posts for more.
Another crossword poem (or the crossword list). Graphite and liquid graphite on mounted crossword poem.
Very happy to have this experimental writing, Because You Are Gone: I Dream You Laughing in Schuylkill Valley Journal Dispatches. When Schuylkill editor Rob Kaniuk wrote me and said it was “kick ass,” it confirmed my suspicion it was finished and gives me the confidence to stay strange (and experimental). Schuylkill’s Dispatches is an online feature where they publish genre-defying writing. They also have online issues, plus they publish a bi-annual print journal. They’ve been publishing for about 30 years.
I wrote this piece in a really great Bending Genre’s workshop with one of my favorite fiction writers, Meg Tuite. I highly recommend their workshops. They usually span two to three days and you post your work (and share feedback) in their proprietary system (it’s not Zoom, so we don’t have to worry about someone stealing our details).
Akashic bits is, I believe, a catchall genre for stories–the dreams, the past, the future, the everywhen–all floating out there in the ether.
