Six Gallery Bowie

20 Jun

So back in 2008, Six Gallery Press published my first (and currently only) book of poems entitled The Wanting Bone.

Why am I telling you this? Cause they got a new blog and I think you should check it out.

They publish really great writers like John Grochalski (who in full disclosure I am married to, but my opinion of his writing is totally unbiased, I swear) and Don Wentworth (who not only is a fantastic poet but runs Lilliput Review one of my favorite mags) and Scott Silsbe and Jason Baldinger and Jonathan Moody and Kris Collins and lots and lots of other really really great writers.

Prove it, you say? Here, in fact, is a bit of that pudding:

Stop counting syllables

Start counting the dead

                             – From Past All Traps by Don Wentworth

History isn’t like us at all, it seems. And lately,

it’s hard to tell who’s doing the remembering anyway.

At any rate, the chalkboards tire of synonyms.

and all those left behind mourn less and less.

Everything’s erasable for someone at a dead end.

No regrets this year. Better luck next time.

                                           – From Beyond Naming by Scott Silsbe

See? Really great stuff.

In other non related news, here’s some Bowie. Why? Because…it’s Bowie.

The thing I love about this video is that even though Tilda Swinton is in it, I’m still not convinced that she and david bowie are not the same person
