A MODEST INTRODUCTION

The point of this magazine is to gather together disparities, poetry that is outside conformity but not necessarily repeating the polar opposition of mainstream/avant-garde and all the other over repeated war-cry binaries.

For this first, and fundamentalist, manifestation, I have chosen to keep prose content to a minimum, hence its fundamentalism, though a future, and prose supported expansion is planned. But for now, I wanted to present the reader with the vexatious questionable fragile presence of poetry in its unprotected self.

Here endeth (mostly) the prose.

David Bircumshaw

RANDOLPH HEALY

Flight

the tip of the tongue the small of the back
a city crowded unequally
difference identity
two sides of a right triangle
joined by a star so faint
the cries are indistinguishable

however fast he races
past workers leaving the factory
past waves crashing on the shore
past a robbery and a birth
sweet sour salt bitter

unable to outpace the dates

camphor musk floral mint
ethereal pungent putrid
seven keys broken in their locks
never again to open
