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
the easy metaphor
