Short, Fast & Deadly’s [Floor Plan] issue features two pieces of visual art I did (“Straytaking” and “The Elephant in the Room”), as well as work from a gang of brilliant folks like Meg Tuite, Eryk Wenziak, Michael Andrew O’Brien, Howie Good, Bill Yarrow, and many more.
I have a visual art/poemy-lettery thing that I’d pulled up from out of the dirt by its short, sticky pixels published in the epistolary issue of Short, Fast &Deadly. Many thanks to Joseph A. W. Quintela for once again giving me the opportunity to explore the outer regions.
Connotation Press was kind enough to publish 3 stories and an interview with me. Meg Tuite and I talked about process, electricity, Keith Richards, and the subversive nature of the prose poem. Also this month, you’ll find other great writers like Paul Scot August and Ryan W. Bradley, so check it out! Thanks, Meg and Ken! see: CONNOTATION PRESS
Short, Fast & Deadly has released another fantastic issue as well, which happens to include my poem, #14. Thanks for including me, Joseph! see: SHORT, FAST & DEADLY
Last but not least, Red Ceilings Press has posted 3 poems inspired by a call from Mark Cobley for work regarding “the edge of a sneeze.” Thanks, Mark! see: RED CEILINGS PRESS
“David Tomaloff’s A SOFT THAT TOUCHES DOWN &REMOVES ITSELF is an elegy to a place where the heart’s foibles are lain to tremor, dream-sore: “that things should not escape/doesn’t always mean they don’t”. Prickly-smooth verses skirt the he-said-she wreckage of rebel gardens and cheating mimes, any talisman to pluck at the wane of domestic blear and the wax of sublime synaptic gappery. Love-as-pipe-bomb, nice touch.”
My gratitude to Mr. Vola and to Deadly Chaps head assassin, Joseph Quintela!
