notes 10 11 -12 --- Johannes S. H. Bjerg Published

Here, at its best, is Bjerg's unique ability to jump effortlessly from mythology to everyday life. A book of haiku that modestly tips its cap to traditional Japanese literature, while remaining authentically Danish throughout.  It is the perfect companion for the imagist stranded on a desert island.

Blow Out by Jack Galmitz published as Free eBook

Yet To Be Named Free Press are very pleased to announce the publication Blow Out, of an excellent collection of minimalist poetry by Jack Galmitz.


Vexing Laughter - Jeffrey Winke Published

The poems in Vexing Laughter are both interesting and bizarre as Winke continues pushing the edge of what haiku in English might be. If Kerouac's Book of Dreams had been written in haiku, it might read something like this.

With a foreword by Gary Lachman.

c.2.2. now available on Amazon

Editors: Brendan Slater & Alan Summers

c.2.2. has now become available from Amazon.com for $4.75 and will be available shortly on Amazon.co.uk for £3.85 (in the next few days)these prices are the very lowest allowed by Createspace. Any profits, however small, will be donated to the charity of my choice: MIND. I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you all who contributed to this anthology and made it an utter joy to work on. Mainly because you have demonstrated that the name is pretty much superfluous, the poem is everything.


c.2.2. Anthology of short verse published

c.2.2. is an anthology of short-verse poetry tackling themes such as loss of identity, poverty, racism, homelessness, unsentimental love, crime, punishment, in short, real life. Each poet is identified by a pen-name; there are no frills and lace in these pages, just honest, gritty experimental verse that we hope will make the reader sit up and take notice, get inspired and rethink the role of short verse not only in the poetry world but also in society, which is, after all, both subject and audience.

There are many wonderful explorations into human nature within these pages, some difficult, but well worth the effort. Life is a cycle and only the fittest survive. But literature crosses boundaries, whether old, young, rich, poor, strong or weak, we're all on an equal footing. We hope that c.2.2. will highlight this essential equality, humbling the rich and empowering the poor. Failing that, we hope it's a damn good read.

Continuing our new policy of pricing our paperbacks at the very minimum allowed by Createspace, c.2.2. will cost $4.75 from the Createspace Store and Amazon.com, £3.85 from Amazon.co.uk and €4.20 from Amazon.eu (although prices may vary slightly from country to country).

Available for $4.75 from Createspace

c.2.2. will be available from Amazon in a few days time.

Dream Language {for 3 voices} by Hannah Mahoney, Brendan Slater & Jack Galmitz published

This new book goes not gently into the rugged terrain of dreams.  Here we are soon falling into a Dream Language {for 3 voices}, where sharper travails of identity are led by the creatures of archetypal realms whose very appearance may signify a path of transformation.  In this language, parents are the givers of more than the usual human inheritance; they burden the dream-self within doorless rooms.  And here, too, water is never far: falling as snuffing snow, drowning emerging steps, only rarely comforting the dream journeyer.  The three voices are not attributed to their authors, thus making of our reading an even more varied dream language, grammars challenging our temporal world, and wisdom sought through alchemy’s fundamental elements—earth, water, air, fire.  The periodic illustrations confirm the disequilibrium of dream journeying.  If transformative haiku interests you, this book will soon enter your favorite reads, perhaps even engage your own dream language within the REM-cycle hallowed halls where becoming calls.


Catch 41 by Colin Stewart Jones published

Catch 41 is not Basho’s old frog pond nor is it Crapsey’s cinquains or Robert Kelly’s lunes. No, this is something entirely new with a twist of the familiar. This is not the stripped back, neutral English of most haiku either; Colin’s voice comes through loud and clear. For a keen haiku poet such as myself, reading Catch 41 was a shock to the system, but of the best kind. Is this a fairly dramatic, possible reworking of the form, the ghost of haiku future maybe? Or are we seeing a new poetic form entirely? This work moves from the sublime to the grounded and funny, from wild life to the love life smoothly and with great finesse. The writing is engaging and playful. This work is one you will treasure, go back to time and again and it may possibly inspire other writers to explore this emergent form. 


Yellow Light by Jack Galmitz published

Yellow Light is a stunning collection of short verse tackling the subject of mental illness. Galmitz cleverly leads the reader down a seldom-trodden path, and like a tour guide of the mind, points out the landmarks of a troubled psyche. His use of rich imagery draws the reader in but in no way disturbs or upsets, he simply tells us a story, one that is often overlooked, forgotten and avoided.

Parallels Published

Parallels by Johannes S. H. Bjerg is now available from Createspace.

Parallels is a unique take on English Language Haiku. The poems are formatted side by side leaving the reader a choice, to read the pieces as a complete poem or as fragments of poems, each adding to the other. On first read the book may appear as a surrealist work, but after careful study Bjerg's humanity shines through. A must for haiku lovers. A brilliant example of the evolution of short-verse.

It will be available through Amazon later this week.
