Frozen Pulse and Heart of Fire

Sláinte to 2011!

This month’s pomes: Another year, another chance to share asininity with a world that seems to overflow with it. Ms. Sarah M. Duncan, a major voice in American letters,  suggests relocation diffusion while juxtaposing the notions of birth and farinological processes. Mr. Albert Van Hoogmoed, the world’s greatest poet named Albert Van Hoogmoed, creates recaffeinated art out a metaphysical encounter at a roadside carbohydrate dispensary. Debuting in the journal, Mr. Lars Nyberg mimics the scattered, fragmentary, observational form articulated by substance abusers, and includes a feline entity. Also new to the journal, Mr. Michael Frissore examines the confluence of meteorological forms and spatial abdication of a confirmed minimalist. Yet another Asinine Poetry tyro, Ms. Meg Eden essays a lyrical fixed form consisting of unrhymed stanzas in which the end words of the first stanza recur as end words of the following stanzas in a successively rotating order and as the middle and end words of the three verses of the concluding tercet well. Mr. Bill Jansen, who once saw a Nobel Prize winner on television, demonstrates a complex, possibly erudite meditation on the nature and history of war and its effects on the American South (cultural and pastoral, pastoral and evangelical). Also debuting in the journal, Mr. Douglas Turner places a mirror to the individualized self and elicits polarized emotions from its observer, seemingly. Dr. Daniel Thomas Moran, who can fit a crown in under 10 seconds, returns with a screed against misappropriation of the cult of celebrityhood and fetishishtic filmic technique.

In our asinine prose section, the papers of the late Mr. Houghton Piker continue to reveal a plethora of unpublished works, such as this examination of antagonistic paradigms regarding varying forms of human growth progression and smells. Internet boy wonder, Mr. Bernie Keating debuts in the journal with an intricate and detailed reflection and projection of the human psyche that is both metaphorical and literal, and yet not Canadian. And Mr. Vernon Waring reports from the homefront in the service of a greater and more impactful inclusiveness regarding eclairs.

And in our classic asinine section, Mr. Henry Cuyler Bunner bloviates on the memistic degradation of ancient forms of literary expression amongst the current sea of oblivious masses.
