REVIEW OF THOMAS FINK'S JOYRIDE 

William Allegrezza posts a brief but wise review of Thomas Fink's JOYRIDE.  Click on excerpt below for the whole thing:

Thomas Fink's Joyride is distinguished from other poetry collections immediately because of its forms.   In just flipping through the book before reading, I thought the forms looked interesting, for they range from hay(na)kus to shaped poetry, and the shapes are fascinating in themselves...

A CONVERSATION WITH PAUL PINES 

Paul Pines converses with Jon Curley over at The Conversant!  Here's an excerpt:


The messages I listened for in my young life with its profound early losses were oracular, something to quiet a sometimes explosive desperation. I recall sitting on a winter’s day in my tenement apartment on Avenue B, sans heat or hot water, and maybe some chicken-hearts in the fridge, concerned about what the future might hold. I asked the Ouija to tell me what to do. Its reply rings as true to me today as it did back then:
ORACLE
Anger
Is cleansing
And calming
But be kind
Art is letting
All your senses
Live
This is a time
For quiet
Contemplation
All books will
Be written

A PAUL PINES READING! 

Northshire Book Store
Saratoga: Paul Pines and Sherry Kearns
Start: 05/30/2014 7:00 pm
Poets Paul Pines and Sherry Kearns will present a reading of their work.
New Orleans Variations & Paris Ouroboros by Paul Pines
As Paul Pines moves through two cities he reminds us that 'we go where we must to find / what we need.' And what he finds is plenty—plenty in all senses and for all the senses. From poems that hang out in the crazy costumes, poignant hilarities, and irreverent reverences of Mardi Gras, to those that fly with Hermes over the roofs of Paris, explore light with Monet and Pissarro, and walk graveyards in the wake of Apollinaire—this book brims, seethes, teems, with qi, duende, life.  
Deep Kiss by Sherry Moore Kearns
Sherry Kearns' raw and probing collection, DEEP KISS, which takes us places most poets allude to, decorate or altogether avoid. The deep kiss here loosens the tongue by reaching past it. Each poem is a deep kiss that compels us with unflinching intimacy empty with possibility to find Eros when no other god / will do.  
Location: 424 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, New York 12866

INVITATION: BIBLIOTHECA INVISIBILIS 


Eileen Tabios has inaugurated a new project and you are invited to visit and/or participate!

Eileen is the Library Director for BIBLIOTHECA INVISIBILIS, an online library of conceptualizations of the invisible.  The Library consists of books and publications as well as other media.  

Marsh Hawk Press authors participating, to date, are

Eileen R. Tabios: HERE and HERE (the latter being the "footnote poems" from her 2005 Marsh Hawk Book, I TAKE THEE, ENGLISH, FOR MY BELOVED).
Tom Beckett: HERE

You are invited to participate by sharing your work(s) that presents the Invisible (including but not limited to invisible or erased text). The Call for Participation is HERE.  There is no particular deadline; the Library blog will be updated as information is sent in.  We replicate the Call here for convenience and because I truly hope YOU will participate:

Your works can exist (and if there's a link I'm happy to link to it), or be imaginary.  The key is to share the work with (some of) its underlying conceptualization.  
If you would like to participate, please send the following:
1) Title or name of work
 
2) Write-up on the work's concept 
3) An illustration (e.g. book cover, interior text, or whatever you deem appropriate) 
4) Bio and Author photo 
Send information to, or ask questions of, me at Nalanda10@aol.com
Eileen R. Tabios 
Library Director, Bibliotheca Invisibilis


As it turns out, the project already has garnered interest from notable poets and artists from around the world!
