in case y'all ain't heard...

the editor of nibble, dandy poet and all around super awesome guy Jeff Fleming has a new chap out and if you've not yet purchased this mother, you need to. Jeff writes quiet poems of sad beauty, poems rich with images and life, poems that vibrate and cling to the page out of desperation and wonder, and this chap, The Bones Of Saints Under Glass, bursts with such work. the cover is by one Hosho McCreesh whom I've vaguely heard of somewhere, and the words will surely move you; they are heartfelt, heart-wrenching and honest as can be. a fine little collection from a tall strange skinny poet (not justin.barrett, heh).

you can pick it up H E R E.

why have you not bought it yet? you're not a punk are you?

good.

I must make two points very clear:

1) The cover of Bones of Saints is totally amazing and on its own is worth the price of admission

2) I don't think anyone has ever confused me with "tall" before

Thank you, sir, for the kind words.

Who is justin.barrett?

Jeff has become one of the freshest
voices in the small press.

That's the long and the short of it.

I dunno but he keeps bothering the world with his well-buttoned self, despite his own self-sabotage.

and indeed: mr. fleming can get a line or two down correckley. I taught him well in my Jedi Poetry Classes two star systems over...

Thank you, Justin and CC (again)!

Strange? Me? I certainly hope so.

One does not "sign up" for Jedi poetry, one is chosen.
