my new e-book

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 2:34 pm

excuse my vandalism was published yesterday by the eminent Red Ceilings Press. this makes me very happy for one reason, apart from the fact that these poems have now gone forth into the world. these short poems (none more than 15 lines) are the first functional ones i wrote recovering from being an assistant nurse, a job that eventually broke me down competely both mentally & physically. i won’t go into the details of that & the sickening working conditions except to say that for the last 6 or 7 months & the first 2 or 3 after leaving i wrote hardly a single line of poetry that could be of any use to anyone. & me being used to my daily minimum of 2 poems, hoping that at least one of them works. so first part of rehab; reclaim poetry. which seems finally to be happening. this inevitably leaves the e-book a bit random, something i can’t really see as a problem. there are some unifying features such as the form of some of the poems, the Mao & Marcos poems, the poems dedicated to Pansy & Carol, the more or less found poem character of a couple of them, the silliness etc


there may also be some copies left of what’s in a, the print chap Red Ceilings published in 2011 should you be so inclined
