Jan. Regenerates Reading ( poetry, art ) set for Jan. 11th, Ben Burr, Jesse Mathison, I + Visuals of AC Carter, KB, +Erin Alise Borzak. Come on: 2 for 1's, free admin, stuff for sale, mingle and yell, or isolate and mute, I don't care, just show up eh.
I have no idea what to expect but a singular, pushing event of positive, spear in your face rawness. Creek Space Collective member Jesse Mathison is in on it, so maybe the smeary arts culture will show too.
The new The Sensation Feelings, issue # 3, is out and fabulously folding on y'all, I is here with two poem pieces for your bethlehem perusals y'all. A strip of my Inpatient Press chap o n e
( in which I repent Charles Olson, disagree, to however minute a degree, and say what is different now than then with our entanglements of human degree, matter and social... also what seems like an intuitive, half gargled reference to Mikhail poem 'you're old man' (!) - 'BACK INTO SWAMP, SWAMP CREATURE' )
( XII ) is in there, as is a poem when first I started likening a return of the body to things other than what it does without my knowledge or say so - 'Still, detritivore' ( a rad piece that feels rad that I consider one rad I do … )…

Poets deal with the selfie ( in exposed format, openness aside from just doing that activity for itself or themself, self love self ):
Aldo vs. McGregor! Came and went faster than a double-click. Watch the corners react, such diminishing reactions, polarized affect, what their next days must have been like - The Irish, The Brazilians.
Dang, dang: Lithub is doing some aright peripheral poetry stuff, critical stuff, I may have to begin checking them on the regular as in a matured, benefits-earning. less erratic HTMLGiant?
Reading, though somewhat more fascinated and enamored with the fervor and aheadedness and directness and eccentricity of the person ( as in, ah, Frank O'Hara - socio-intellectual creatures that draw people behind them like an adoring cape ), James Baldwin of late.
White Debt / addressed well and honestly, and honestly well : "I erased 'complacence' and wrote 'complicity.' I erased it. 'Debt,' I wrote. Then, 'forgotten debt.'
The Demands (!).

"...until asking grows/ planetary/ wider/ & seething/ what’s owed
to the same walk/ at different times of day/ the changing air/ the imperative air
& if I love/ is love response/ to panic/ its possible loss/ & how to walk
with this loss/ I cannot love/ without conceiving of it/ endless presage
the falling bird/ the black core of the apple/ disbelieving/ a certain dream/ cold
in flesh & manner/ I have let you die/ but also disdain/ & want another
if I lack language/ is it care/ or sublimation
what self is here/ ..."
