What's New

Evoking Orange-Flowers, Swallows, and Regret

September 1, 2011 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

". . . it was the most beautiful of words, he'd always felt . . ."

THIS MONTH’S VERSE: To wit, Mr. Vernon Waring contributes a poem that is a progressive work, one which more than decisively affirms, as one might expect, the juvenility and maturation of this extraordinary journal’s mise-en-scène. Mr. Graham Everett‘s poem allows one to view the world in context of a post-racial, socially mediated age and its arrival as one of the multitude of outlets exemplifying Eliot’s “hipster cocksuckers.” For her part, Ms. Figgie Creamcheese jarringly apposes a sense of exultation with a sense of theater re: modern media relations. Similarly, Ms. Ann Steiner‘s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally, as well as being loaded, like Baudrillard’s work, with tragic and metaphysical portent. Meanwhile, Mr. William Wesley Ankrum sheds light on a post-suburban landscape that resists the technocratic discipline of, say, Hugh Laurie or Danny Tanner. In other matters lyrical, Mr. Jekwu Anyaegbuna debases poetic form into a dialectic on moral virtue, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the chance of a new reality. In our flashback poem, Mr. Dustin Michael writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity, with Jennifer Love Hewitt.

IN PROSE: Cleverly apropos of current cultural memetics, our fierce editorial assistant Mr. Adam Vatterott sharply defines a stunning moment in history based strictly on a jaundiced cynicism. Apropos of nothing, Mr. Richard Cairo journeys back from the future to demonstrate a teachable moment involving illusory superiority and the Gaelic diet. Selflessly adrift in the world of literary pretension, Mr. Richard Tyrone Jones stretches to encompass the destruction of identity politics amid the quakes of global and virtual precepts.

IN CLASSICS: Mr. J. Gordon Coogler debuts here, with a loverly, rhymerly bauble.

IN PODCASTING: Episode 93: Asinine Night 3D includes: “Self-Portrait of the Artist,” by Vernon Waring; “Nancy Grace Bitchslaps My Muse,” by Figgie Creamcheese; “A Pretty Girl” and “How Strange Are Dreams,” by J. Gordon Coogler; “This Is My Mind, This Is My House,” by William Wesley Ankrum. (Hear your own asinine styling on the podcast by downloading and using the FREE Asinine Poetry iPhone app).

    Yeah, my poems explore the relationship between gender politics and emotional memories. With influences as diverse as Blake and Francis T. Mule, new synergies are crafted from both simple and complex meanings. Not kidding. Ever since I was an embryo have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of relationships. Just ask my mother. What starts out as hope soon becomes corroded into a cacophony of greed, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the inevitability of a new understanding. As temporal forms become clarified through boundaried and critical practice, the reader is hopefully left with a glimpse of the edges of my condition. I will send you some.
