News/ Quick Ramble

New poem up in P.F.S. Post: Naked(for Mona Mur)

Still waiting for the unveiling of the next issue of La Petite Zine. From what I've been told, it will go live before the AWP conference.

In other news, Venereal Kittens has gone through a massive transformation over the past month. There is a new line-up of poets, visual artists, and even noise artists.

Now for a quick ramble.

It seems, in this great world of poetry and self-expression though the arts, things are labeled "po". We have "vispo", "po-mo" "po po". But one with we do not have is "noisepo". Why not? Noise can be a form of poetic expression just like visual art.

I'm going to start a movement. We already have sound poetry. But noise poetry? Can noise be poetry?

It'd be interesting to start this movement, but, quite frankly, I could give a rat's scrotum about selling the message. Everything from the School of PO can be thrown into one category: experimental. If we called everything experimental, sure, we'd confuse those people who rely on labels as a means to being different (or grouped accordingly). Maybe that's what is needed? Confusion. Mass confusion, even better.

Which is why I'm burying the whole "noisepo" idea. Along with the whole "pornpo" idea.

mass hallucination is what we need.

no, pornpo is cool, cheap entertainment, u know. I am gonna start a movement called Save Pornpo.

people can label anything, but you have a choice to create something that cannot to be labeled. well, yeah, that may just create mass confusion. cool!
