Four poems from Blueshift Road
are in the Alien Swimsuit issue of Fell Swoop
: “Identity as Finnish Tango,” “Blink,” “Newfangleness,” and “Sugar Beach.”
I’m in fantastic company – fellow aliens Richard Martin, Jake St. John, Jamey Jones, Lewis Warsh, Clark Coolidge, Buck Downs, Andrei Codrescu, Aram Saroyan, Tom Weigel, Brett Evans, Christopher Shipman, Chris Toll also donned swimsuits for the occasion.
Vive le Swoop, xJD!

The latest in unarmed gear, featuring one of my collages on the cover:
unarmed is a gem of a zine with loyal fans in Minneapolis/St. Paul and beyond. It follows in the venerable footsteps of independent poetry zines of the 60s, often just mimeographed and stapled, such as Ted Berrigan’s C Magazine, Ed Sanders’ Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts, Anne Waldman and Waldman and Lewis Warsh’s Angel Hair Magazine, and a host of others since that explosion of small presses.
How many old school print poetry zines are still out there that haven’t converted to pixels? More than you might think, but not as many as before the advent of the internet.
unarmed makes reading poetry at the bus stop sexy.
