News of 2 news from Lame House Press

Firstly, get you some of dis Alli Warren poetry, namely Cousins, which will spin you right round. I am a fan of Alli's poetry here & here (a whole 'lectronic bookish object made of light & dots) & here, below, from her chapbook Hounds of the year 2005, which I am lucky to prick myself on whenever I want because when it came out I didn't mess around. (Yes, that is a prediction about the future.)

To Those That Would Deny Poetry

Into canons we
are stuffed into duffel
bags, toolbelts
      Physicists proclaim
logic--that's a business suit but what
does it mean? What
Benefit of Clergy
--brackets of a car
are brakes of wind
much like the bee's mother
and myth

      After thoroughgoing
      investigation it has been
determined A lot of you
elks are shoe leather
      Or, Go You Graphs of Trade
as if you spoke "good
English," "I understand"
your tired scripts your
full-daggered throats
      arming units
for what's called perpetual
      war Call us
what you will
what is willed is
half-deceiving yet
trope of the eyes
      fire under foot

She will poison you (in a good way), but with words not a little vial which is actually a cameraphone. Perhaps pointing to her previous work is misleading, you think. No, even if this book has entirely diff stuff disimilar in feeling execution I am leading you to the right place, which is wherever Alli's poems perch. Anyway I ordered mine. Here is where you click to become happier than you currently are.

Additionally, you should be tempted by this sample from the also brand new Harmstorm by Karl Parker, of whom I do not know otherwise at all, & so place in the exciting & always shivering-quivering category of JUST DISCOVERED. What a batch. (Go, Gina.)
