Work Published in Otoliths #46

I have two visual poems published in the current issue of Otoliths.  You can check them out here.

Discursive thoughts

Omg, haven’t posted in months. LOL. I’m thinking about rejiggering this blog a bit.  I’ve been pretty damn conceptual since its inception–nah, even a bit academic–and that was okay.  But…I think I’m getting bored with my conceptual-ness, which is not okay, because it reeks of obscurantism (ha, ha! mouthful).  I’ll be honest: I have a love/hate relationship with academics/academia.  My problem? I dislike gatekeepers and elitists. But then, we do need these folks to critique, catalogue and disseminate “Art.”

Anyway, I’m getting offtrack.

Here’s something interesting, though. At least, something I think is interesting, if you’ll bear with me. I haven’t really mapped out (organizationally) what I intend to do vis a vis a visual poem.  I just sorta go for it, splashing paint all round like a madman.  I’m not using this “technique” for the vispo series I’m working on now. I have the vispos worked out in my head before execution.  Not sure how it will work out, but we will see.
