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!)
