Getting Bamboozled


Here's one in a foreign tongue to bamboozle you, from 2010, on "post-avant" and its significations.

Innovative Audiences/Chicago wiki


This "innovative audiences" wiki, which features me and a bunch of Chicago poets, went up in the mid-to-late Aughts.

P.S. Another innovative audiences thread, from the same time, about "post-avant."

Opera Bufa Hothouse


Some upgrades and improvements to the appearance of Opera Bufa, and all its ancillary channels/expressions, online: here, in refined form, is Laura Goldstein's summer '08 Loyola University syllabus (English 271), which features two days on Opera Bufa and a third with me reading/lecturing to the class, which included Stacy Blair. Here, also, is Ms. Blair's term paper for the class on Opera Bufa. Lastly, a piece I wrote for a later (2013) edition of Opera Bufa, which relates the story of the book's genesis in Aughts Philadelphia and Chicago.

P.S. Another syllabus of interest from the late Aughts.

Swiss Army Knife on X-Peri


This image, by Irene Koronas, accompanies my poem Swiss Army Knife in the web-journal X-Peri, which went up last night. The multi-media angle X-Peri are exploring is an interesting one, and I recommend those watching to explore the whole journal; the clash/clang of words and images is unique.

Fieralingue.It: Pigs and Planes

Salvaged, also, from the Wayback Machine: this 2006 page from Anny Ballardini's Fieralingue (specifically, from the Poets' Corner section of the journal), featuring the poem later known as Pigs and Planes, which I also read at the MLA Off-Site reading in Philly that December.

Interview with Anny Ballardini

I did this interview with Anny Ballardini in the late Aughts, and have now retrieved it. Thanks, Anny!
