Very pleased to post that my poem Crocodilian has been published in the October 2019 edition of the ever-off-centre RIC. This issue also happens to be the third (!) anniversary of the publication, and as is now customary, the anniversary comes with a theme. This time it’s the Devil and Hell, hence the subject of the poem.
Wanted to write something fun but disconcerting and which also linked back to a piece I wrote a while ago called Then God, about the daily torments of the devil.
Thanks, as usual, to S, but also congratulations on making it this far despite everything and staying true to the original vision and intentions of RIC – long may it continue.
Very pleased to say some of my Dead Man poems have been published in the September 2019 issue of the ever-unorthodox RIC.
In this set, the Dead Man considers his options, regrets his recklessness and shares his wisdom. Crossing fingers that more on the Dead Man is to come…
Thanks as always to Saudamini for giving me the time and space and support to write. Especially in light of the fact that the “Related” portion of the page on RIC looks like this:
Very pleased to report that my poem Untitled (In wait for an eclipse) has been published by RIC Journal.
Started this with the image of people in the street staring up at the sky and coupled that with Boumahra Ahmed, a town on the Oued Syebouse in Algeria. Boumahra Ahmed appeared in my iPhone’s weather app one day.
With special thanks, as always, to S.
P.S. Bonus dream.
My poem Send Flowers to Rhodes Greece has been published in the June 2019 issue of RIC. It’s always, always a pleasure to have my work find a home in the Jaipur-Paris-(!)-based journal.
With thanks as usual to my impossible friend, S.
It is my pleasure to have three poems published in the April 2019 edition of the remarkable RIC Journal.
Pleased to be sharing website space with Daniel Fraser and Naveen Kishore and echoes of Jaipur at 6.31pm, among others.
With thanks as usual to the magnanimous and wise Saudamini.
I have a piece in the February 2019 edition of RIC Journal titled Rhinoceros Dream.
It’s always a thrill to be published in the uncanny RIC. I’m deeply thankful and forever indebted to the super talented Saudamini for the encouragement, support and friendship.
I have a piece in the January 2019 edition of RIC Journal titled Poem for the Dead Man.
Thought I could leave the dead man behind… This could only have been published by RIC.
I’m deeply thankful to S – as usual.
My poem Two Parts by Matthew Turner has been published in RIC Journal.
Two Parts is a response to Matthew Turner’s evocative poem Redivider, Redivider, a poem that was published in RIC last month and which I read and read and wished I had written. So I wrote something by Matthew.
Big thanks to Saudamini as always, and to Matthew for letting me ghostwrite for him.
I reviewed Sebastian Dreaming by Georg Trakl, translated by James Reidel and published by Seagull Books, for the Summer 2017 issue of the great Asymptote. My first proper poetry review. Read the collection and wrote the review in a frenzy back in Feb. I think Trakl was just what I needed.
Big, big thanks to Ellen for her enthusiasm + editorial guidance.
