road song for

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 2:26 pm

my first long book (70-some pages) has been accepted by corrupt press. no release date has been set yet. the book is in 3 parts. the first, “road”, contains poems written on the road, some can be found online here (scroll down a bit) & here. the second, “song”, contains poems using fragments from song lyrics, some can be found online here , here, here, here & here. the third, “for”, contains poems dedicated to friends, colleagues & laurie anderson, some can be found online here, here, here & here. the history of this book is rather interesting. i found the press on facebook & saw that they wanted chapbook manuscripts for possible publication in the summer or fall. i submitted some of the “song” poems. dylan replied quickly asking if i had enough “good” material for a book. it seems i did


also it’s 10 years, almost to the day, since the publication of my first chapbook. a pink thing in swedish, with the unpretentious title alla diktsamlingars moder (the mother of all poetry collections), done in an edition of 100 or so by Fakir Förlag



  1. Congratulations. You must be thrilled.
