Two poems and a nod

amphibi.us. Shannon published some uniquely experimental and strange poetry at his site. Recently I went online looking for it, and discovered it no longer existed. I was really bummed! I’d often include amphibi.us in my quest for some reading inspiration. One of my poems Shannon published, “Semaphones,” I also selected for Microtones: Semaphores I come from steel, bolt, twine, bales of indifference, swells of turpentine. Broken bells, misfires at semaphores. Shrieking hearts grind open moors. Twisting tides train moon in motion. Scurrying sideways, crabs flee ocean. You find me flinging misshapen flocks as you bridge closer filming shocks And here is another poem of mine that Shannon published at amphibi.us: Still, the Clouds Kelly tells me tonight Erik leaves for Minnesota this Sunday. Immediate relief, exuberance. Later deep pain registers regrets. What have I done? His wavering like weather. Inconsistent. A rare shimmer. Still, the clouds; still, the rain. Thanks so much Shannon, for always supporting my work. I hope you are still writing, and crafting your poems and I want you to know I wish you all the best!    ]]>

    1. David, you are too kind! Thanks for visiting. Wish we were at Jones Beach area 6 right now without the clouds… or rain! Just the doonies!

    1. Dearest Meg, thanks a ton and I can’t agree with you more. I was so sad when I tried to find even the archives for Shannon’s zine. Oh well. Still, his commitment and artistic choices are for all of us to relish.
