.the night is of poetry. by StJoan
the day of sweet song
and melody that rises
in the sizzling sun
but i belong
creature of breeze
and cooling quiet
in the void of stars
Reason on Mutein the love of philosophyReason on Mute by StJoan
against the battle cry
and for the sake of sanity
for all I have said
I as well said nothing
DivorceSound was not invited to dinner,Divorce by StJoan
she was busy with you tonight.
For me, a can of soup sufficed--
I do not yet know how to cook
The TV movies, sitcoms, reality shows,
prime time dramas told me
to put down the pint of ice cream
open a bottle of white wine
bob my hair
find a younger man
strut like I own the world
pawn the ring
ignore the tan line
move on, up, out
but on the patio,
I light a joint, listen
for the suburb's muted murmur.
I packed your bag
kissed you good night, parted lips
to tell you again but
you took sound with you.

My Thoughts on ClubsThese days, it seems like new literature clubs are springing up everywhere. In fact, there are new clubs of all types springing up, but as my commitment is largely to the literature community, I will be commenting only on this segment. I'm all for the development of the literature community, but often, these new groups are actually being counter productive.My Thoughts on Clubs by ATrue
Consider this: For every new club that opens, there is another club that is dead or dying for lack of staff support or member participation. By opening another new club, you are drawing attention away from existing clubs that desperately need more audience participation. Some current club owners would love to find someone else to take over their group, or would love to have a new admin to help them run things.
I suggest that, if you're thinking about opening up a club, that you look around at existing clubs first to see if they are already offering the service you're thinking about providing. For example, if you want t
THE LIT LIST: Issue No. 35As it is the first of the month, there were a ton of new contests and prompts released today, some of them that are pretty unique. It's all very exciting! That said, we don't want to forget some of the ongoing projects, so let me draw your attention this week to Wordsmith-Foundry, where they accept your literature submissions and provide you with worthwhile critique. All you have to do is ask!THE LIT LIST: Issue No. 35 by ATrue

I've been accused of going by Joan, but really my actual name is Alicia. |
I recently relocated down to Austin, Texas because let's face it: it's the best place on the planet.
Occasionally I write something worth reading, but more often than not I'm in the business of quick scrawls and scraps of poetry that i've been terrible about getting back around to them.
Follow me on twitter StJoan or join me and others at Texasdevmeets around the state I won't bite, i promise.
