short note on yesterday

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 1:16 pm

yesterday, in malmö, the cops tried to murder anti-fascist demonstrators. i say murder because it was premeditated. repeated cavalry shocks & armoured trucks driving into us. blocking ambulances from getting to the most seriously wounded. & all to defend the meeting of an ambitious nazi party at any cost

new otoliths & collaboration

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 10:59 pm

the new issue of otoliths is once more a huge wonderful field to get lost in. it includes the first 5 pieces from  bad hair climate,  my ongoing collaboration with lovely poet & great guy richard lopez. i leave you with the announcement from mark young

There’s some Herodotus quote about cyclones not staying us from accomplishing our appointed course; &, despite two more — one of which tripped harmlessly down our main street — since the one that caused the previous issue to come out a couple of days early, we’re back on schedule & issue thirty-three of Otoliths is now up.

cover

this is the cover image of my new chapbook as a part of the ambitious project this is visual poetry generously run by Dan Waber of chapbook publisher. me doing visual poetry, in the form of more or less weird photos is about as likely as madonna doing something like this & i’m delighted he liked the madness

my new book

lars-cover3

this thing just happened is hot off the press from gradient books beautifully run by Jukka-Pekka Kervinen. & with a wonderful cover photo by my better half. it’s probably the weirdest book i’ve done (until now) & i’m absolutely delighted that it found such a good home. the first 20 something poems were composed in 2005-06 & the rest in 2012-13 using one of the poetry experiments outlined by Charles Bernstein inspired in turn by Bernadette Mayer. as i put it in a note at the back of the book

take the first & last word of each line of the selected texts, write them down exactly as they stand & then, without changing the order of the words or adding anything, cut away words until the poems appear. then they may be arranged into lines & stanzas

because each volume is distinctly different from all the others

because a simple ballpoint pen is sufficient

because somebody blew up america & the lecturer has not yet risen

because somebody needed to say these things & take the shit-storms bound to follow

because these lines are written in a place that is really nowhere

because racism is still alive & kicking using iron pipes

because public service radio censors anti-fascist songs

because anti-fascism is always self-defense

because you set some mighty high standards for questioning the mighty

because our heads are still colonial

because you gave us new slightly more spacious hearts

because the previous statement is existential & political & not clinical

because capitalism is a mental state & you knew it isn’t healthy

because fresh air is a good thing
