poetry issues #24

Poetry Issues #24 was published in October and November 2020 online and in postcard format. Below you can read it as a whole and also take a look at the postcards. The next issue will follow in winter.


 

Part 1 of poetry issues #24 is a combination of a poem ("Dead Reckoning") and a visual artwork (Land) commissioned for the commemoration of the crossing of Atlantic by the Mayflower, carrying the Pilgrims (Saints) and other settlers (Strangers). The event is also commemorated in the Netherlands, where the Pilgrims spent the last twelve years before the journey. The works are exhibited in a group exhibition in BpluC in Leiden (Nieuwstraat 4, from October and until 31 December).

Part 2 of poetry issues #24 is not a poem, at least not originally and not exclusively. In fact, it is a rather small excerpt of "Alice in the Casino," which is a hybrid between a short story and an essay and is probably worth your time. True to the sans-système tradition, I have decided that poetry issues is not just about poetry in the narrowest sense but about all things poetic. The accompanying visual artwork is called Alice and is complementary to the story.

Part 3 of poetry issues #24 is a found poem and it's the first one I'm publishing, so it's No1. I am planning to explore this shunned poetic form more, with found poems from different media and content (an essay on the wonders of parataxis and its role in poetry and the visual arts will follow soon). The accompanying artwork is Drink That and I'm considering gifting it to the first person who finds out where this poems was found but then again, that's not such a big challenge.  has already been given away.

Part 4 of poetry issues #24 is the double haiku "Botany" and the visual piece Difficult.

This is the fifth and last part of poetry issues #24: Another found poem (this time with a little more composition involved, thus the more 'polished' feel)  and the dedicated collage work here today.
