RECENT SIGNS OF LITERARY LIFE

Ocdt Tinguely circa August 1979, Combat Arms Training School, Gagetown.

After laying low and gathering my psychic/poetic forces over the holy daze, a few things have lately come to light …

My essay on the theme of War & Silence was published online at Poetry-Quebec, edited by Endre Farkas, Carolyn Souaid and Elias Letelier. They were also kind enough to publish one of my poems, ‘Escape Velocity’.

I’m also reading a few pieces tomorrow, drawn from a whole pile of texts I’ve recently selected as part of a cunning plan for a recording project.

    I’ll join yours if you join mine! No really!

    All kidding aside, I am looking to elaborate on my skills and hope to one day read openly, from a podium but I cannot figure out which works would be suitable, I guess trial and error. Then still, I cannot finds which are even my better written works, it is like choosing a favorite child. So feedback at this stage is important to me.
