OZ-BURP 02 arrived this week!
Due for massive surgery and still pete managed to edit, produce and send out copies of his latest project. Elegant cover art also by pete spence. Thanks dude! Wishing you a speedy recovery — need you back producing more “enjoyable” magazines edited by YOU!!
I’m in great company! On the same page here as Tom Weigel…
so our boats of bluster
sail like witches over the saltgrass
in one design of invalid synapses
And a bit of silliness from me I kinda like…
Two brass monkeys extol the virtues of The Bell and Bow.
You know the one? The Scape of Reed, you mean, in Kensington?
Down the High Street, ’round the mews, and past The Big Salute.
Oh, I prefer The Bog and Bunkum, don’t you? Do you, indeed!
Give me The Ol’ Drum Roll any day, give me The Bag O’ Crisps even
The Cat O’ Nine Tails
Grand company indeed! This particularly apropos double-pager dedicated to the recently departed Beat-poet Herschel Silverman (April 17, 1926 – September 19, 2015)…
I’ve been obsessed with death all my life,
and now that I’m dead
I’ve been rummaging in my mind
about an old crosscountry traintrip
my mother in the baggage car
in a California coffin.
I’ll leave behind
a headstone marked POET,
and a pillar of salt.
Better than most of us can hope for!! Speaking of exclamation marks, here’s a super page of ’em (dedicated to pete with a dose of larfs!) by Cam Lowe…
And a final-not-final word from pete… Or eine kleine Nachtmusik…
