Best magazine ever.
First proper magazine *ie...one that wasn't free or out of a newspaper* that i've read in about two and a half years!!
also really expensive :/ £6...but that's cuz it doesn't have any adverts all the way through...and the adverts are the things which really piss me off...
anyways, it's poems by mostly unknown poets alongside visual representations of the poems by mostly uknown illustrators as well as interviews with more famous poets and illustrators... all in all, different from most things I read and very enjoyable...it's fairly new, it's out seasonally and this edition was only the fourth or something...it's A/W and it's the 'This is Modern Living' issue :P
what's more interesting is that you can submit your own work...might have a go at that....but they're not taking anything new until Harvey's birthday...that's just a coincidence btw...they're not waiting for Harvey to turn 16...although...
no out of pure laziness i'm going to write out the shortest poem of the whole lot...it's by Darrel Mager
This is what happens in between emails:
I worry that you've been hit
by the fuselage from a
and that I will never see
or hear from you
i gotta admit, i have these irrational panic moments all the time...
like when i was walking to the cathedral last saturday in the rainy dark on my own...it was only 6.40 or something but i was a bit scared. well, i say a 'bit'...i was considering how i could turn to use my brolly in one swift movement as a ninja device to knock out an attacker...
that's not really the same as the poem though, is it?? the poem's saying that people have become so dependent upon and impatient with their technology that being parted from anything other than an instantaneous response is unbearable.
well...i reckon that's all from me for now...off to have some dinner :)
then h/w. oh joy. oh rapture.
Peace and love
p.s any typos? i don't want to know...
