Life of Pi and its interfaith comment on human nature, and Pi Patel's important sentence, "So it goes with God." "Somehow," meaning, "Because I am in a state of synchronicity." It comes and goes, but I like it best when it's here.
We do not use these stones with mouths, by Ronit Baranga, but I wish we could!
But that's neither here nor there, nor why I am here! I am here, on the Hump of the Week, also a Random Coinciday and a Poetry Someday in the blog, to announce a new poetry feature at Escape Into Life--Daniel Romo--and the new issue of Redheaded Stepchild, in which I have a poem! It's one of my Cassandra poems. This is a wonderful issue, and I am so impressed by how the poems all weave together. I love those redheaded editors!
Daniel Romo's work is in that "blurry" place between poetry and prose--prose poetry, flash fiction. I like the humor and darkness in his work. I have paired him with watercolor, by Marilyn Cvitanic, available to blur, but also somehow working as a train wreck (the first piece) and an "anonymous tapestry," to quote Romo's interestingly titled second piece.
Here is some more stuff to get you through the hump of the week:
Early Lessons, Poems of Childhood by Kate Bernadette Benedict, an online chapbook. Kate BB rocks!
A super-duper deal on rufous poetry by Karen J. Weyant, the Scrapper Poet. She calls it a Rust Belt Sale!
And now, because I have been complimented on my "sly humor," I wish you a happy holiday season.
