HINCHAS DE POESIA, issue 11

WHAT ARE HINCHAS? Hinchas are the homicidal fútbol fanatics of Latin America. In a land where fútbol is equal to religion, hinchas keep the Church of Fútbol afloat.

Hinchas de Poesía is a digital codex of contemporary Pan-American writing. It publishes the fiction, poetry, and prose of authors from América.

I’M THRILLED TO HAVE TWO POEMS APPEAR IN THE 11TH ISSUE, ALONG WITH WORK BY WRITERS I ADMIRE LIKE JAMIE FIGUEROA, TIFFANY MIDGE, JOHN PLUECKER and others. GUEST EDITED BY BOJAN LOUIS.

MIXED RACE IS A PANDORA’S BOX

ASIAN AMERICAN LITERARY REVIEWasian-american-literary-review-race-v4-n2-fall-2013

.

The Asian American Literary Review‘s latest issue is more than just a magazine, it’s a package, it’s a box, literally. Packaged in a box titled “Mixed Race in a Box” are a deck of cards (the back featuring quoted excerpts and the face side, art), a poster, and three bound books: “Mixed Race is a Black Box,” “Mixed Race is an Inbox,” and “Mixed Race is a Pandora’s Box.” Certainly eye-catching, it’s an important issue. (quoted from NEW PAGES blog).

.

aalrI’m proud to have a new lyric essay titled “Deniable DNA: Thoughts on filling out the Uruguayan population census,” in this Mixed Race Initiative original creation known as AALR’s latest issue, the box!

But here’s the question: If this is what today’s literary magazine looks like, can you imagine the contents? Dig in and let’s start a game of “52 Pickup.” It even has a deck of playing cards!

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Where Thy Dark Eye Glances

 

WHERE THY DARK EYE GLANCES: QUEERING EDGAR ALLAN POE edited by Steve Berman
In this time of waning light and All Hallows Eve approaching, I’m thrilled to be a part of this POE-inspired collection. My contribution is a POEm.

 

I can still remember and hear so well my eleventh-grade English teacher, Ms. Wills, reading Poe’s “Bells” to us in class. That was probably the thing I remember second best about that year.

 

FLICKER AND SPARK

 FLICKER AND SPARK

Regie Cabico and Brittany Fonte did an amazing job putting together this beautiful collection of contemporary queer spoken word and poetry, FLICKER AND SPARK! This is my first time being in the “oldest” category of writers in a book (I’m found in “Pre-Stonewall Poets” (born before 1970) – and I’m in good company!! :D) – and the future’s illuminated with these brilliant generations speaking out behind us.  Thanks for this superb gathering of tribesmen/women.

Beautiful cover art “Four and a Half Acres and a Goat” by Joyce Bennink.
