Sorrow found me in December and I wrote this, published in The Fib Review today
The Fib Review has posted yet another of my poems.
Read it THERE

In November I plan to write a poem a day (instead of doing NaNo)

Disapproving Microbo

The Skinny was created by Truth Thomas in the literary crucible of the Tony Medina Poetry Workshop at Howard University.
A Skinny is a short poem in eleven lines.

The first and eleventh lines can be any length. All the others are just one word.
The eleventh and last line must be repeated using the same words from the first and opening line (but not necessarily in the same order).
The second, sixth, and tenth lines must be identical.

Truth has built a blog where she published the form

I find the form fascinating.
My favourite is “Fall” by Shloka Shankar


And here's mine, in English and some sort of translation in French.

Have also some celebratory sunrise:

My three poems "Misapprehension", "Incomprehension", and "Misinterpretation" have finally come up live.

They are part of the polymorphic edition of Birkensnake 6, under the "Shapes of Words and the Meanings of Sounds" theme.
They will be translated in Korean. So far only the title and my name seem to have been translated for the on-line edition.

Read them all THERE.

I shall busy myself with this cool project:

Pulitzer remixer

Official page is HERE
(for some reason the embed code provided on that site did not work)

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides is my chosen/assigned book.
Come april, I shall remix it 30 times (once per day), extracting found poetry from its pages.

I can hardly wait.
Many thanks to The Found Poetry Review for inviting me to participate.

The end of the year is coming with a little clean up.
Which means I found this twitter story, published by 7x20, which I forgot to tell about.

Wishing you the best of year's end.
Beware crackers and flying corks. If the going gets too wild, you can always do as Ansia does:

The best place to be

found poetry review

Which I took it to mean that it must be available for sale.
And it is!
The link at the Found Poetry review does not work but this lovely item can be found at Amazon.
This is for pure paper fetishists: No electronic version seem to be available thus far.

Do consider purchasing a copy: from what I have seen in the galleys, this is a very nice book indeed.

I am proud to announce that my Twitter found poem "The best Endemic Birds" has been published by The Found Poetry Review.
The issue will later be available for sale from Amazon but, in the meantime, you can whet your appetite with the list of content HERE.

The poem features tweets from:
@birdchick (Title)

Have a found mermaid too:

La sirène

Many months ago...
Let's see. A bit longer than that actually:
On the 14th July last year, there was a tweet from Amanda Palmer mentioning that Neil Gaiman had fed her some answers over breakfast.
My mind immediately pounced on the image and much nonsense ensued. A poem was created but for some reason I thought that this one would never get published.

Which just proves how much I know about what gets published or not.
A Few Lines Magazine has just published its Volume I, issue IV and it has taken "Adrift" on board.
(You can access it also via the Magazine's Blog)


With many thanks to and

I thought I had a physical version of this Twitter anthology but apparently I do not.
And it seems it doesn't exist as a physical thing. Which would explains a lot.

So I guess I shall have to enter the Goodreads giveaway for eBook versions... (although I am pretty sure Joanne sent electronic files to the contributors, I'd just have to dig it out).

And here I would have posted a picture of a Lisa Snellings poppet on top or near the book, but be it as it may...

My friend Stacy Hurt is a wonderful artist.
For instance , she has designed some of the mugs for the Night Garden Project.
But she is an amazing artist with fabric and needle and her patchwork art is presented in many shows.
Which explains why I was thrilled to discover that she had been inspired by one of my pictures for a piece she is showing in Oklahoma this weekend!

Gare Lorraine TGV

I am so thrilled by her rendition!
The "ALL Noble Seasons" show is travelling: If you are anywhere near this exhibition, please pay her art a visit.

My Twitter poem "Golden Globes" has been nominated by the Editor, Folded Word, for a Best Of Net award.


Don't you just LOVE persimmons?

I am reliably told that the Twitter stories anthology "140 and Counting" is now available for Kindle.
You're welcome.

Have some random cat picture while you're at it:
