PS Apologies for the rash of recent posts announcing magazine publications — after many months devoted to Robert Zend, I have a little catching up to do. There’s one more commercial, after which I promise to return to my regularly scheduled program of essays, reviews, interviews, and whatnot.
I’m a bit late in announcing on Rogue Embryo the publication of two poems in The Rusty Toque
— but it’s “never better never than late,” as I always say, when I can figure out the syntax.
Many thanks to the editors at The Rusty Toque

Sublime summer, everyone! (Or wondrous wintertide for those below the Tropic of Capricorn.)
Some posts got pre-empted by my series on Robert Zend, after which I took a hiatus from the blog for a couple of months. So I’m cranking it up again like an old Victrola.

Five minimalist poems from R Is the Artichoke of Rose
are in the latest issue of Cricket Online Review
. Mwah! to the editors.
Click on the image below for the first poem, then “advance” for the rest:
is my second chap from rob mclennan’s Above/Ground Press (the first was 2011’s If Leaf, Then Arpeggio
). This one’s a two-fer — it contains minimalist poems from my manuscript R Is the Artichoke of Rose
as well as material from the cosmic peregrinations of Blueshift Road
, a work in progress.
The title poem, “Sugar Beach,” gets its name from a white sand beach on Lake Ontario a couple of blocks from my home, with a view of the Redpath sugar plant; the cover’s Fragonard painting, “The Swing,” is a link in the poem’s chain of thoughts, along with a Smith & Wesson, a trapeze artist, and a black pigeon.

to order a copy from Above/Ground Press. Reviews of the chap are welcome.
Below is a sample poem from the collection, “Endless Regression of Heavens,” first published by Similar Peaks
Endless Regression of Heavens
Glaciers dribble foreign rocks
as dawn releases chicory blue.
Its fickle hues waltz round equator,
spool, top, dizzy moon, gainly
as the patter of millipedes ruffling
toward a country with no flag
but fields of chicory blue. Horizon,
chromatic with moments. What
of the next and the next, plunging
into myth evolving in the deeps?
Haunting the deeps while manning
the crow’s nest? With each finite
duration we arrive closer by half
to a famished constellation,
blinking beast perpetually devouring
a platter of chicory blue.
