a home a living place a staying place

the streets of this place
                                                             even less myself

sometimes, sorry,
                I’ve gone on
an attempt
                               to fell the uneasiness between extremes

we shadow voice
                we see murmur

a setting down
                a listing of heavy eyes
                                                             sometimes summed up
                                              in silence
brevity
                               briefest of sentences
                words of weather and city

this new place
this same movement

without time
in any language

Brad Vogler is urrently back in school at Colorado State University, but previously worked as a librarian for a number of years, and is looking forward to returning to that. He also is helping with a press there, Delete Press, and they're getting ready to release their second chapbook. He has had work published in Ditch, Moria, Apocryphaltext, and The Dead Mule and has poems forthcoming in Little Red Leaves.

He writes: "A few months ago I came across an interview with William Allegrezza that Otoliths published, and a couple of things stood out to me in it: one was the talk of writing by setting up parameters and reworking the things within those parameters.The other involved appropriative techniques, both of which I've been thinking about often lately, especially in relation to the poems I'm attaching.

Over the past few months I’ve been working on a series of poems that took shape after reading Joan Retallack’s, “What is Experimental Poetry & Why Do We Need It?” The poems (I hope) create a dialogue from words borrowed from a group of texts, which are footnoted in varying ways, with lines of my own."
