3 Poems in deLuge Journal


I have three poems appearing in deLuge Journal: “Another Bird Rising,” “The Neurotic Dreams September in April,” and “Forced By This Title to Write a Poem in Third Person About Himself, the Poet Considers the Phenomena of Standing Waves, Dreams Involving Long-Lost Cats (Even If He Has Not Had Such a Dream Himself), And the Amazing Durability of Various Forms of Weakness.”

Many thanks to editors Karla Van Vliet and Sue Scavo for including my work in this lovely publication.

  1. i always enjoy your work Robert, but these are something else, i mean i love your work, but these, they are babble-worthy.
    ‘Forced by this…’ is technically astonishing, the longer line makes the flow almost iambic, but with a few skips out of synch, like a stone skimmed on a pond. & there is the wonderful Koan like line ‘How to release what you no longer hold?’ & the strong image of ‘The raindrop remains intact through its long plummet’.
    the poems as a whole have a nursery rhyme feel to them, these impossible, daring somersaults of the unconscious making exodus into poems. when Daniel Schnee reads these he’s going to flip his lid; we’ll be like Garth & Wayne “we’re not worthy! we’re not worthy!”

  2. Congratulations! I’m always excited to hear of your new publications and find more journals along the way. I appeared in the issue, as well πŸ™‚ Thought it would be a fitting magazine for a few unusual pieces, with its dream theme.
