A MODEST INTRODUCTION
The point of this magazine is to gather together disparities, poetry that is outside conformity but not necessarily repeating the polar opposition of mainstream/avant-garde and all the other over repeated war-cry binaries.
For this first, and fundamentalist, manifestation, I have chosen to keep prose content to a minimum, hence its fundamentalism, though a future, and prose supported expansion is planned. But for now, I wanted to present the reader with the vexatious questionable fragile presence of poetry in its unprotected self.
Here endeth (mostly) the prose.
New Enhanced Chide with Unexpected Prose.
View A SIREN IN THE ANNEXE a new review of British poetry through the nineties, as but lately delivered by Mr Andrew Duncan at the Cambridge CCCP.
