The Kimchi Poetry Machine

Margaret Rhee’s new Kimchi Poetry Project asks, “How can poetry be participatory, feminist, and delicious?” and “What is the intersection of food, poetry, and technology?” There are a few more questions, but to get a true taste of both questions and answers, just go to the Kimchi Poetry Machine.

Anna opens the Kimchi Poetry Machine:

Sun Stigmata gets in your eye…

Poet and conceptual artist Eileen Tabios’ new book, Sun Stigmata: Sculpture Poems, is now available through Marsh Hawk Press. And do read her long poem, “I forgot the Binary of Refugees Vs. Art” here in the Fall 2014 issue of Local Nomad. Yes, we like “disturbing.”

Eileen Tabios is a genre-exploding, subversive, transgressive, superbly intelligent writer who I think thrives on the idea of hybridity. …she can be intent on blurring the lines between art and the everyday, not unlike, for me, the emblematic metaphor in William Burroughs’ novel Naked Lunch

The Great Martian War–Revisited

A combination of cgi and archival footage, “The Great Martian War,” directed by Christian Johnson and Steve Maher, makes me feel that we humans are the Martians/aliens/robots—-the “great alien invasion of 1913-1917” as invasion of industrialization and modernization, as well as our own propensity for violence. Possible theme for the Spring issue? I-Robot, “alienation” or something like that, alien codes (see link below), asemic writing, living with or taking refuge from 21st century modernity? Just dreaming…the wonderful prerogative of editing a lit./art journal…

Poetry Flash

Poetry Flash was one of the first poetry journals to publish any work by me. It’s a long-running local publication from the “other” Bay Area — and still a must for anyone who wants to know what’s up with poetry in California. It’s strange to see it online…I’m going up to N. Berkeley today, and hope to find myself a print copy.

California Coast

One of my poems, “California Coast,” will appear in California’s Wild Edge: The Coast in Prints, Poetry, and History by Tom Killion with Gary Snyder, published by Heyday books. Looking forward to seeing publication of this book in 2015, and glad to see that this poem, first published in 1995 (Coffee House Press), and again in 2010 (Sixteen Rivers Press), continues to have a life in books.

Here’s a video by Tom Killion on the handprinted book vs. trade books:

Presses with Open Readings for Full-length Mss.

Poet Luisa A. Igloria (check out her new book, Night Willow) posted this on FB, and I’m reposting here so I won’t lose it. It’s from The Line Break, a poetry and wine blog.

Otoliths Issue Thirty-Three

Otoliths Issue Thirty-Three, edited by Mark Young, is now available. Three of my haptics are in this issue, and there are lots of poems by my favorite poets and artists, including Richard Lopez (of Really Bad Movies) & Lars Palm (of Mischievoice), Maria Garcia Teutsch (of Maria Loves Words), Martin Edmond (of Isinglass), and many others.

I mention the blogs because I view the poets’ blogs as almost geographical places: beautiful and sometimes disturbing territories or archipelagos constructed with words and images.
