Lummox #3

RevisedL3Cover.inddLummox 3 is out and ready to be shipped to interested buyers. This issue contains poetry by some 180 poets, plus interviews with Grace Cavalieri, Doug Holder, Daniel McGinn, John Macker and Rick Smith; plus essays by James Deahl (Canadian Poetry in 2014), Daniel McGinn (A Bouquet dropped on Laura Nelson’s Grave), Linda Lerner (Just Another word for Plagiarism), Ellaraine Lockie (The Poem in Public), Bill Mohr (the First No School Anthology of L.A. Poets – a book excerpt), Lucille Shulklapper (My Life in a Book), Judith Skillman (the Fine Art of Revision), Norman Olson (Failure – Musing on Art) and finally RD Armstrong (the View From Down Here).

There are also reviews by Nancy Shiffrin (the Unexpurgated Dairy of Anais Nin), RD Armstrong (A Shot Across the Bow), Bill Gainer (Relics of Lust), Joseph Gardner (Songs of the Glue Machines) and Angela C. Mankiewicz (What the Wind Says).

And of course, the poetic musings of this year’s first Poetry Contest winner and runners up… John Sweet (winner); William Taylor, Jr. (first runner up) and Christina Foskey (second runner-up)! Their poetry was really quite good…some of the best I’ve seen to be honest (in my opinion). The poetry in this issue is really something special!!! There’s so much to be explored in this big-assed book!

Check it out on ISSUU. com where you’ll find the “sampler” edition…

In the ‘IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING’ DEPT.

amelia raymondA little about the two covers controversy: originally I was going to use a drawing by Amelia Raymond (that’s her holding up her copy of the original cover design) but it was deemed too racy for general consumption, which really surprised me (but I came to realize that what I thought was “normal” was way too liberal, even for the poetry crowd). So, the artful layout designer, Yazoota, created the cover you see at the top of the page. But I was saddened by the loss of the more radical cover, so I decided to print a second book with the original cover and to make it really special, I made it a Ltd. Edition (only 125 copies would be printed). So make sure you are ordering the right book (the contents are the same in either book, only the covers are different).

Here are some satisfied customers.

WILDWOOD by Kyle Laws

WildwoodThese poems inhabit place—beginning on the Jersey shore; moving to southern Colorado, northern New Mexico, and the wild spaces between; returning to the fringes of seaside resorts by way of New Orleans—telling all the details; using words like paint; layering sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and finally touch; uniting ideas with lyricism to yield connections between past and present, ocean and desert, mountain and river, men and women; unafraid of the trouble and tangle to grow and thrive.

“I too have memories of “the shore,” so Wildwood brings a rush—like looking into someone else’s old photo album— of vivid images, scents, and O, the sounds of voices.  Watching the grownups, hearing the histories, and almost too quickly making one’s own life story, Kyle Laws’ poems move from the shore to other storied places:  New Orleans, Taos, Pueblo, St. Augustine, and return full circle to the Cape May milieu she knows so well.  They are a guided tour, not only of one family’s personal struggle, but the universal quest for understanding how we grow and survive, with the grace to be alive to the world.”

Ruth Moon Kempher, Kings Estate Press
