The Magazine #4, 180204, Jill Darling

Our comrades in the fight against literary banality, Spuyten Duyvil, have just put out Jill Darling’s (re)iterations(s). We published Jill’s a geography of syntax in 2016 and are happy to say Jill is going to be helping out with this magazine. A poem from a geography of syntax follows, and you can buy her book on the website, today only, for half price. 

Besides poetry, Jill writes fiction and non, and a recent and fascinating essay on Wendy Walters’ Multiply/Divide and contemporary urban/corporate politics can be found at Entropy. You can hear her in conversation with T. Hetzel on Living Writers, and you can hear her read the poem, below.

 

Achy Breaky, like Resilience 

from a geography of syntax

 

The clang of seasons

plays like distinct hues melted into liquid

while we gather the pieces

move ahead on the game board, or go to jail

claim property, sell out

I am trying to say that little is more than accumulation

sorting the details will only take us to September 

You are what you earn

Correspondence hangs uneven like background music

there is a reason country songs are popular

on the jukebox

dreams, mishaps

the easy metaphor
