POEM: An ant’s chant

An ant’s chant

That sudden dry spell
Drives you crazy
As you had just
Ninjad up for
The storm

The heat, that
Energy stored up, lazy
Has nothing to do with it –
Nothing at all

That step you want to
Take so bad, but mad
Is what they write
You off ass
Licking would
Be better –
I get it
Now

Deformity, smile
You’re on candid
Camera
Yet caught between the
Frames, second aims
If hit best
The crime of your
Deception is you fall
Back on the rest
You fall back

We don’t see you
You are nothing to us

POEM: Campus hippo

Campus hippo

See horse
Sea monster
See forces
Sea wonders
If larva will change
Its shape along the road
Grow teeth ten sizes
Bigger than its nose

Go deep inside
The ocean and glow
Spark beef with sharks
Where the water doesn’t flow

See horse
Sea monster
Seek more
See larvae
Not fierce-looking beasts
Eating animal testers –
Those human freak hunters Leave your beauty to fester

See not conquering king crabs
But fair court jesters
Tiny, mystical creatures
From much larger ancestors

Sea horse
See wonder

SNEAK PEAK: Poems

After months of inactivity and unvirality of the leaked works from the little red booklet, we’ve decided to share those pieces on this blog directly – demystifying the unmysterious mystery. This means the first four poems from the booklet will be posted on this blog in the coming days – one of them presented in a rare, never-before-seen form! We have previously shared one short piece from the booklet, called A substantial amount of insignificant fiction, so in total there will be five new (green) CREATURE-poems that you can discover before purchasing your own copy of the little red booklet. A full contents page can be found on this blog as well.

And joy and spread some of it…

BOOK REVIEW: The Holland Times

The Holland Times, the Amsterdam-based English language expat monthly, has reviewed the little red booklet in their 2014 January issue. Lots of thanks to Declan Aylward (editor-in-chief) for making this review possible, and to Jonathan Gill (critic) for writing it so tastefully. We are humbled and frenzied by your references to the great masters of the bestiary, and admire the 140 character historic overview you produced on the theme. Dangit!

We hope you are looking forward to a second volume.

Favorite line from HT’s JG: “In these poems, the always-strange proximity of animal wildness and natural savagery […] is an opportunity to explore where homo sapien might belong in the ultimate bestiary.”

Not April 1st

Dear Creatures,

 

You haven’t been hearing from us for a while, now, as we’ve been on a World Tour for the promotion of the little red booklet. Exciting news that you will be hearing more about soon; with pictures! Yet, we will not be posting any new messages here ever again. Mr. Karfield’s first-ever book review (by Jonathan Gill, Holland Times) will not be soon appearing on this blog.

Oh, and also – it’s not April 1st today. (Un)happy Fools’, y’all…
