I’m not sure what’s happening at the moment but I received news of another publication this week! This one’s for Black Flowers Arts Journal, Volume Twelve, the Dreams issue. It includes three of my pieces, one collage poem, one painting and one erasure poem. I guess I should submit more visual poems! They seem to fill a niche. They used the painting (Perspective) as the front cover on Instagram, so I’m really pleased about that. You can view all my pieces by clicking here.
I’m happy with how it looks, it’s wonderful to see my work curated like that. I rushed to get the erasure poem done for the deadline so I was a bit concerned it would look rough around the edges but it seems to hold up well. And I’m thinking of doing more collage poems in future. Kind of isolated phrases against a starkly drawn background. What do you think?
I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed doing them! 🙂
I’ve become very cavalier with my attitude towards Throwback Thursday having missed the odd one here and there. But I reserve the right to continue the tradition when I’m in the mood. So here’s mine for today. Okay, I know Starman would have been the most obvious choice to complement the poem but it’s not my fave Bowie song (shock, gasp). Heroes is, along with Wild is the WindandThe Man Who Sold the World. And let’s not forget the soundtrack to Labyrinth, oh no. That’s in a league of its own.
What’s your favourite Bowie song? Will you join me by sharing it in the comments? Or feel free to share your latest ear worm, whatever that may be 🙂
I’m so pleased to have two erasure poems published with Ink Sweat and Tears! I submitted them thinking they might get rejected as I’ve had a few of those this year. Erasure poems particularly are very hit and miss so I usually don’t bother sending those anywhere. But then I figured there was no harm in testing the water. And they were accepted straight away! Which absolutely made my day 🙂 Conclusion: it’s always worth submitting even if you’re unsure.
Also, I love that they described them as cosmic (above – you might have to click on the image). I hope you enjoy them, and as ever, thank you for dropping by ❤
