Some new Poetry of mine has appeared this month:
Sam Neill Vs. the Abyss on Drunk Monkeys
For a while I was planning to write an essay on Sam Neill's presence in several apocalyptic horror films (for the record, it's In The Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon, and Possession). Eventually I decided to write it as a poem instead, and got to this version over several rounds of revision.
And guess whose approval it got?!? (a fine moment in the life of a poet!)
Thanks. I like it. Esp the last 2 lines.— Sam Neill (@TwoPaddocks) April 3, 2019
Also, in Gravel Magazine, three of my favorite recent poems, which I submitted under the general title of "Sense Organs":
3 Poems by Jesse Miksic
I have a few more forthcoming: in June, poems in Whale Road Review and Liminality; in October, a group of four in Coffin Bell.
Thanks for following this little blog, all ye one or two readers. Happy Spring 2019!
