Paperbag No. 2

Happily, the new issue of the online magazine PAPERBAG is here! A beautiful showcase of poems, artwork, video, audio and more.

Check out my bran-spanking new full-length poetry comic Tree Opera, and make sure to pause for a long period of time over Ben Pease's excerpt from Chateau Wichman, a Blockbuster in Verse, which include Ben's amazing computer-Paint-collageish-artwork images, which are subtle and gorgeous.

Check out the Paperbag site all the way through, as there are many easter eggs of interest, including Instructions For Folding, offering readers a chance to collaborate with the amazing Anne Carson and Robert Currie. (You'll have to go check it out for more details!)

Toad Talks At Great Length


I opened my book Poetry Comics by Dave Morice 
and out fell these napkins on which I scrawled on night at Cafe Loup over a year ago.

Self Portrait with Poem Fragment







1-DIMENSIONAL SLICES OF A 2-DIMENSIONAL MEMBRANE
VIBRATING IN 11-DIMENSIONAL SPACE.


I hung these pants on the wall because I want to jump into them
like a gazelle. Wouldn’t it be something if strands of the universe
were good for you? I want you to unravel perpetually and enter in
at the mouth. A light, sinning at the rim of a black dome with
oscillating lines, filling our faces with a steady silver glow—
