Back in February, I had a poem published in the "Nature and Myth" pamphlet in Corbel Stone Press's marvelous Contemporary Poetry Series, a little ditty about myrrh. And then in June, I had another poem, this time a portion of an Amanita Ode called "Toadstool," published in the "Nature and Regeneration" number. Corbel Stone, edited by Autumn Richardson and Richard Skelton, publishes Reliquiae, along with Hambone, my present favorite poetry journal. Reliquiae is truly wonderful - dedicated by credo to "landscape, ecology, folklore, esoteric philosophy and animism" - and the pamphlets in the Contemporary Poetry Series are replete with sublime work.
Pleased to report that I have new work in the fourth issue of Reliquiae, the very fine journal edited by Autumn Richardson and Richard Skelton, and published by Corbel Stone Press. My poem, "Thirty-Third Amanita Ode: Parmenides/Clouds," is a meditation on Gerard Manley Hopkins's descriptions of clouds in light of his invented term of uplift, instress. For anyone who might have been keeping track, this poem concludes the series of Amanita odes that comprise Earth Is Best, my manuscript of ethno-mycological effervescence. Scroll down to find my "Mycopoetics," published last year in Hambone.
Also, a review of The Sampo in Publishers Weekly. Nice!
