Flowers for Chopin
(Pere La Chaise Cemetery, Paris)
My eyes see where thousands do not Linger awhile on the fallen leaves October yellow amongst the blood red And the houses of tombs of Famille Resting and subsiding. The pathways twist with marble veins Grayed beneath clouds descending lightly On white maps and white hands gripping That circumference of peace Weighed and sold on passing shoulders. Victor Noir lies brassy Fallen flat on a back above turf and stone From an island in the verdigris of rain Shine genitals smiling from touches Protected and paled from bloodless lips. A nose smells what thousands cannot Searchers glide past the full boned earth Clasping a single rose down a muddy aisle Breathing the mist of scented air to Fill a shop of flowers for Chopin.

IMPpress We are pleased to announce the launch of the IMPpress, a quarterly, original, poetry and art e-zine. DESIGN DRAFT The FREE, current issue of the IMPpress - the design draft, is available here to read on-line. This design draft has been published to give poets and artists a reading and illustration experience of the content and form of future issues. The e-zine features: Poems; Artwork ; YouTube video links; A featured artist; An exhibition of two works of ekphrasis (a collaboration between poet & artist); interviews, etc
All issues of the e-zine will be free to read on-line. You will also be able to freely download digital versions of the e-zine, as PDF files, to read off-line. Printed copies of future issues will be available to order from Magcloud, a print on demand service. You are encouraged to take a free subscription to the IMPpress, so as to be notified of both submission deadlines and future editions.Details on how to subscribe are on the website: poets & writers One of the best things about using the web is the ability to access information quickly and for free. Poets & Writers' website is a perfect example. Perhaps you search our extensive databases for writing contests to enter. Maybe you've taken part in conversations in the Speakeasy Message Forum, where writers exchange advice and ideas. Maybe you are listed in the Directory of Poets & Writers (or aspire to be). And maybe our e-newsletter keeps you in the know about upcoming deadlines for grants and awards or literary magazines to submit your work to.
In the past year alone we've added terrific new features, such as: 1 The Time Is Now, providing weekly writing prompts to keep your writing practice fresh--available on our website or delivered right to your inbox. 2 Clips, brightening your day with a curated selection of videos, including book trailers and literary curiosities. 3 A Literary Agents Database, providing detailed information about agents who represent poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers, plus details about the kind of books they're interested in representing, their clients, and the best way to contact them. And, 4 coming soon, a new series of City Guides, providing an insider look at literary hotspots in cities across the United States. All of these resources are free ... but they're expensive to create and keep up-to-date.
We are able to provide an extensive range of online information, and ensure that it's trustworthy, thanks to contributions from writers like you. Become a Friend of Poets & Writers and help us keep these great services free.
Make a contribution today and be a part of the community that sustains and our other programs. You can join the Friends of Poets & Writers for as little as $35. You'll get a one-year subscription to Poets & Writers Magazine (or, if you already subscribe, we'll add a year to your existing subscription), plus the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to keep these valuable resources accessible to all.
We believe that writers at all stages of their careers need trustworthy information, a reliable source of inspiration, and a place to connect with other writers.

Purses Are a Lot Like Pussies
Purses are a lot like pussies They really have to be a good fit Some are salmon, corral, mocha, or cherry red. Some fuzzy and others smooth as soft pink suede. Sometimes you'd like to get a new pussy but you think, this is my trusted purse Everything fits inside of it I know where all the pockets are located and it's nice and worn. Pussies are fun to shop for, but finding the right one can be VERY frustrating! Just when you think you've found the perfect purse, it gives you attitude. You start to second-guess yourself, and decide that you want to return it. You plead with the cashier, "This is not the right pussy for me, I've made a mistake!" But you didn't keep your receipt NO REFUND allowed! Sometimes you become quite comfortable with your purse. It becomes an extension of your shoulder, you take it everywhere with you. You clean it out regularly, getting rid of all the bullshit that has accumulated. Often, you find yourself rifling through it seeking something lost and the joy when you find that special something deep down at the very bottom Climax! Unfortunately, when pussies have gotten old they're traded in for new models- a shinier pink patent leather a tighter stitch, an upgrade to first class It's still the same purse, but a little worse for wear. I guess that you could say that I have purse issues One day I'm happy with it, the next day I'm not But, as my lover would tell you- Ignore what I say, It's simply my PMS talking today.
DIX, Otto 1801-1969
