Alligator Stew

my friend across the pond, Mr. Lally, took it upon himself to solicit submissions, print and send out a small press lit mag in the span of a month.

well he did it. and no, it doesn't look like a pile of toilet paper held together with glitter glue. it looks good. real good, in fact.

look at the picture up there! there's someone with sensitive poet hands giving it a thumbs up! I mean, he can't be wrong, can he?

anyway, am I schilling this out of the goodness of my heart? no, of course not. I'm in it! 2 poems and a large drawing. and while my work is enough reason for you to buy this (stop snickering, please. and spit out that gum), it also features some other fine poets: Harry Calhoun, Dave Donovan, Father Luke, Jenifer Wills, justin.barrett, David Barker and others. even Mr. Lally makes an appearance or 2. vain bugger.

you can find out how to buy one here, and learn all about Alligator Stew's epic journey to fruition here.

chapbook now on sale

well, the trade edition of my chapbook, the confusion will be enough for them to leave you alone, is now on sale.

the deluxe edition won't be available until late September (?).

so here's what I think you should do: buy the trade edition now, read it, and then decide you can't live without the deluxe edition. because, trust me, you can't live without the deluxe edition. Justine and Jordan at Chance Press are pulling out all the stops on this baby.

buying info, tons of pics, and kind words here.

and remember what the kids say: Buy two to keep from being blue!

at least I think the kids say that. or maybe it's: Fuck you poet boy! Get a real job! And get a haircut! You're too old to have hair like that! Is it a wig?

well, the fine folks at chance press are working hard on my chapbook. I saw some pics of the cover this morning and I got a little giddy.

I'll stop myself from gushing and just give a link to more info.

but, I'll tell ya, I really want to gush. sensitive poet type that I am.

check back later for gushing.

almost forgot, the title is the confusion will be enough for them to leave you alone.

hello, spark yourself
into this world.

stoke and burn for
as long as you can,
or want.

try and forget that
you’ll leave fireless.

and almost without

why no new poems?

just wanted to leave a quick note as to why there haven't been new posts recently....

the poems I've been writing lately are for the chapbook coming in the fall (not summer as previously planned, but that gives me and j&j at chance press time to make it extra awesome!) and I want the poems to be fresh. oven fresh, not warmed up in the microwave. the microwave would just make them tough and chewy, and nobody wants that.

however, there are a couple of things I've written that I don't plan for the chapbook, so look for those in the next few days. all 2 of you reading this.
