Bite Your Lip & other poems

by Will Entrekin

A collection of sixteen poems ranging from the fun to the reflective, about everything from drinking to writing to living:

Times Square Always – Which considers those four magical acres of midtown Manhattan where balls drop and neon glows and sidewalks shimmer, especially when you visit them in the wee hours of the morning, when you have so much of the world to yourself.

This Ain’t Wonderland – Which considers everything from Cheshire grins to being a knave, but ultimately realizes that maybe Wonderland expects as much out of us as we might of it.

Regeneration (A Doctor Who Sonnet) – As the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith may have so far demonstrated that bowties–if not fezzes–are cool, but it was Tennant as the Tenth who revitalized the show and made the character his own.

Just One Smile – Barack Obama took office with many expectations–and hopes–resting on his shoulders. His smile and demeanor requested trust, but four years later, has that trust been earned?

Deserted – Which considers the solitary life of writing and the salvation storytelling can provide.

Factory Life – Does schizophrenia feel like working in a sheet-metal facility, where all the water is fed in through the coolers and magic pills reduce the world to a perspective experienced through the small lens of a welder’s helmet?

The Inevitable Decay of Francis “Fitz-Pack” Fitzgerald – In which J. Alfred and his coffee spoons collide squarely with Snooki at the Jersey Shore, where the doormen ask “Joking, or non-joking,” and where every evening is as likely to end in instalebrity as in a situation.

Soliloquies – All the world’s a page, and Shakespeare is the greatest marker of them. From “The Tragedie of Macbeth” to “The Tragedie of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark” to “Much Ado About Nothing,” Shakespeare’s soliloquies address both the human and the writer’s conditions. Writing may have changed since the Bard’s time, but the passion behind the stories remains.

Discomfort – The woman rode the PATH train in such a way you wanted to ask what was wrong, and if there was anything you might do. Sometimes, instead of asking, one observes, and writes a poem about that discomfort, instead.

A New Drink – Shakespeare said the clothes make the man, but Alice and James Bond can tell you the right drink can help, too. Maybe that’s why everyone seeks a new one.

Inspiration Point – Not every lovers’ aubade takes place on crisp sheets on a sunny morning; many more occur during long, cool evenings where the stars and the cars and the towns and the world make singular acts of sensuality feel like defiance against an uncaring–or too caring–universe.

Ab(so)lutions – Sometimes getting ready for work in the morning feels like just that, but sometimes the daily ritual of the old rise-and-grind feels like a more epic struggle.

Keep for Me a Place in Your Heart – Which considers those moments of a relationship upon which one might look back fondly and hope the other party in the relationship does, as well. And a plea, really, that she might.

For What It’s Worth – Began its life as a tangent to the author’s novel “Meets Girl.” A sort of song, sort of ode to a girl with tambourine haircuts and elusive love.

Bite Your Lip – Daddy’s little nightmare is a frat boy’s dream, with body lotion tasting like peaches and cream, and she inspires precisely this sort of verse. You just want to make her bite her lip.

Too Happy for Poetry – “Some people just want to fill the world with silly love songs,” but poets seem to want to fill it with solemn, somber verse dedicated to valedictions forbidding mourning and lovers they can never know. Where is the poem from the lover in love and satisfied? Right here.



Monkey Bars

by Jay Nichols

On the precipice between salvation and ruin, an unnamed man sits alone in a parked car, waiting for something to happen. Reminiscing about the good old days can only take him so far. It’s up to him – and only him – to choose his fate.

Early Morning Knife Wounds

Northern Gothic

by Ian Truman

Northern Gothic is a collection of poetry in four parts.

I didn’t try to reinvent language. I have little use for new ways to twist your tongue and play with words.This is not that kind of book, these are not those kinds of poems. Most of them do not follow any specific form and it wasn’t even intentional.

Most of them just got out that way and I decided to remain as truthful to the original feeling of the poem as possible.

In all things of life, I am a pretty straight forward man. Northern Gothic is a collection of tall tales, slices of life, changes of heart struggles, hopes and contradictions.

It’s about real life, about living in the East end of Montreal, dreaming about the north, working in warehouses and factories, trying to go to back to school or founding a family.

It ain’t always pretty and it ain’t always bad. One thing is for sure, these poems are always honest and that’s one thing we could all use a bit more of these days.

Take care, Ian.
