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
