Unsplendid - "Near the End of the World"
I have a poem in the near-new Unsplendid, "a journal of received and nonce forms." You can take a look at the magazine my heading over to http://www.unsplendid.com/, where there's much to be read. Or you can hop straight over to "Near the End of the World," http://www.unsplendid.com/2-1/2-1_youmans_neartheend_frames.htm.
The poem is true to itself, but it's not how I actually feel about the fate of poetry in general! Instead, it sprang from a passing mood and is true to that mood. Other recent poems are at http://www.mezzocammin.com/ and elsewhere, and there are a good number of older ones at http://www.thehypertexts.com/.
CREDIT: The above triptych is one of a series that alternate as cover of the current issue. They are by Fabian Birgfeld, and there are more of these "interior landscapes" inside--do we call it inside? or just elsewhere, very elsewhere--as well as a statement and information about Birgfield, who has a website at http://www.birgfeld.org/.
