Raccoons are not too intoxicated to tear down a building

photo 1

We are organizing in mass to be a force that will be destroyed before the Enemy even knows we are there.  Who aroused the riot of Runt Raccoons everywhere?  Who pushed us to stick our tongues in cracks in the system?

The Bosses we can’t get off our backs.  The bang bang and ratatatat of police militarization.  The War on Drugs.  The rejection of Sincerity, the rejection of Love.  The abuse of…

Internet Poetry, affordable passion

Internet Poetry, affordable passion

I don’t feel creative clicking and scrolling
Passion cannot be afforded by everyone
Sometimes Freedom won’t feel real unless it’s stolen
The single mother working 50 hours a week to support 5 children
Folks who have the usual explosives pointed at the vicinity of their family’s heads
The millionaires who are not yet millionaires
Financial dreams scramble over each other’s bodies like angry spiders…

TWO POEMS BY DIANNA DRAGONETTI

alternativeliterature:

Once,

while carelessly
brandishing a
small pocketknife

I somehow cut
a bird in flight
inadvertently
on its breast

in the area
just below
its stately beak
and gleaming eyes,

scarlet spreading
amidst
copper-colored
plumage

And it bled for days.

Self-aware Poems & Poems About Poetry

"THERE'S A POEM IN THE MIRROR! I SEE IT!"

“THERE’S A POEM IN THE MIRROR! I SEE IT!”

Poems that know that they’re poems, or critique poetry, seem to have harnessed a bad reputation, a ball-gag that tastes like filth.

I dig them though.  Poems that are passionate and provoke emotion are good poems, at least in my little corner of subjectivity.  I dig writing that employs strong images, and leaves a taste of itself (whether sour, sweet,…

Poets, come out of your closets

“Books & Shovels was not initially a station wagon. It was a frame pack on the back of founder Jeremiah Walton, a 19 year old poet from New Hampshire, U.S.A.. Hitchhiking at the time, Jeremiah operated a small distribution operation, street performing and hitting shows to spread the publications he released through his indie press, Nostrovia! Poetry, and for UndergroundBooks, a New York City publishing house. Books & Shovels had not even been named yet at this point. It was simply a new adventure for the recent high school graduate.”

Writer’s Edit, an Australian publication, covers the history of Books & Shovels, where it’s going, and how we are taking 21st Century Poetry by the throat.

Passion Wars

Q: When you first approached me with your project, you mentioned Passionate Living over Making a Living. I love this concept. Can you tell me about your own journey to passionate living?

A: To be honest, it happened before I had the words for it. It’s simply how my brain is wired. Poetry clicked. Since it’s clicked, I’ve thrown myself recklessly against it. It’s what I’ve decided to do with my…
