new chap forthcoming...

my new chapbook A Sound To Drive Away The Coming Darkness is almost ready. I just saw the proof and the eternally 'awesome' leah and co. at Alternating Current and Propaganda Press did a fucking fantastic job. it looks great, and the layout is dandy. the cover art is by Cynthia again, a perfect photograph for the chap.

it'll cost six bucks plus $1.60 postage, send cash, check, money order [made out to alternating current] to alternating current, po box 398058, cambridge ma 02139 usa, and it's about thirty five or forty poems full of honest blood, gentle melancholy and low rumbling thunder. I'm sure if you emailed the Propaganda folks (alt.current[at]gmail[dot]com), they'd let you pre-order a copy (and they take PayPal). BONUS, you also get a free archival chap from their...archives (and I get some royalties off each sale, so make me a hundredaire). also, please to keep in mind that I'll have no author copies to throw around to you cheapskates, so you'll have to pony up the dough if you wanna read this bad boy. support the small presses of the world; it makes jesus smile.

you don't wanna make him cry do you?

I love when Jesus cries, he whimpers like a little girl. It makes me feel tough.

But I'll buy your boook anyway.

yeah, it often takes the tears of a small child or an immortal to make us poets feel like big shots.

and thanks! I'm looking forward to this one...

oh, and jesus' tears can cure cancer. too bad he never cried.

please note that there is an additional $3 for out-of-US shipping, as well, because, man, is it expensive nowadays.

you can purchase advanced copies now by either paypal, using the email address alt.current@gmail.com, or by sending cash, check, or money order made out to ALTERNATING CURRENT, po box 398058, cambridge ma 02139 usa. will be available online at alt-current.com within the month.
