over at the GPP Blog;
the GPP is now an even more all-inclusive organization.
also, I love Annie Menebroker's book Tiny Teeth
. thanks, Annie for sending it to me. you people out there should buy it
, mostly for poems like this:Deadly Cure
why do you deny yourself
the steady drone of bees
spills out of your eyes
you are a worker
educated to caution
conservative as a bow-tie
who has told you
this is the way of the world?
who has drawn the map?
nightly I dream of magic
and its invasion
only to find the world
has discovered another vaccine
man that's some good shit. I also got Doug Draime and Misti Rainwater-Lite's edition of Next Exit
and it's a fine bit of work, especially the poems that center on Texas, and the poem about Big Sur (which is a monster, I think by Doug). great stuff and well worth four or five bucks (and pick up Bill's Norwich Unveiled
while you're at it, a moving long poem, full of fantastic images and strong lines, with stylistic echoes of Jeffers...).
hey, check out Father Luke,
a new GPP Operative and generally interesting motherfucker.this on Kerouac
is a good read.
