mr dorian, i read your cliff's notes, your pretty lips, face from a time when a forehead was a brow and hair rippled, well mine just grows and i'm right in front of you, mr dorian, watch me, hands and tomatoes, breath and garlic,
six tomatoes, is how the poem starts, see these hands in the kitchen skinning tomatows on scalding water, their weeping skinless the blood in my handskin a fury. see these veins in these fingers, watch them carry blood back to the best heart you'll ever know, a heart beating for these hands skinning tomoatoes in the kitchen.
for those of you who are not buffalo poetics listserv junkies...
the other day i...sole editor...posted a call for submissions for a new electronic magazine i am putting together entitled melancholia's tremulous dreadlocks...it should be making its debut sometime soon...
mtd...for the most part...will be a journal of poetry...however i just accepted an interview...so one never knows what might rub me the right way...it will be an irregulary yet frequently updated e-journal...
all fiction/non-fiction should be short short short...what does that mean you ask? well...no war and peace-sized epic works on your underwear and that sort of thing...
poetry submissions should be sent as a .doc or in the body of an email (if formatting is not an issue)...no more or less than 4-8 works in one submission...if you've sent me two poems i won't even look at them...i need to taste a little bit of everything at the buffet...
send submissions to my primary email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
a word of warning...ever hear of something called tripod dorothy?
melancholia's will not be the prettiest looking journal in the world considering the fact that like many poets i am dirt poor (ever live off ramen noodles?)...if you can get past the ads and dig into the good stuff this should not be a problem...a body's got to start somewhere...eventually i'll purchase a domain and all that jazz but for now the url will be clunky and there will be advertisements on the site for things i've never even heard of like mr. wonder's age-defying bodily excretions...

I recognise speech mirrors silence and words rise like bricks from unknown pools when instinct builds a bridge that shines upon the hidden outline of their mind reflecting its flawed form for all to read.
Their brain draws waves from reality's canvas and their willpower moves mine like hands at an oracle prodding a lump of knowledge to stir my first alertness of the other world in a language which kindles a tune to flame from the internal universe ticking my clockwork song in a unique time truthful to their genius
They are understanding givers who divine what dream in a cloud above stars will breathe in light and make reality sing of life's return to a slumbered weave of painted silence with the memory of one slipped bottle dropped from a toddler's fingers the morning milk struck land and grounded outside a door to shatter in a puff of broken glass
smashing itself into the mind by sheer force of will as a first remembered act of childhood revealed behind the door of sleep I make believe my soundless unseen wave like ripple lapping on their screen of thought can open.
