Two pieces from "in the office hours of the polar vortex" in The Newer York

I've got a pair of new pieces in The Newer York's Electric Encyclopedia of Experimental Literature. They're both from a collection in progress called "in the office hours of the polar vortex."

Here's one and here's another.

Tuba Player

Here's a new videopoem using the poem "Tuba Player" by Robert Wood, read by Nic Sebastian, all taken from the Poetry Storehouse. Archival footage taken from the Prelinger Archive.

I had five poems up with the Poetry Storehouse recently. They post poems that are available for remix, interpretation, and mutilation by video and sound artists working with poetry as raw material.

The Poetry Storehouse

The good people at The Poetry Storehouse have shared five poems of mine, with audio, at their site. It's an interesting project where the poet must give up control of their work for others to reinterpret through video or audio work. (Or other things that I have not heard of or do not yet exist.) These poems are there for other artists to mold to their own designs, which is a weird (read: valuable) experience, realizing that you've crafted these words and you're going to let others mess with their balance and meaning.

They've have some great "re-mixes" of poems up there now from other video artists and poets that are worth checking out. Excited to see what happens with this little bunch of poems.

Thanks to Nic and the folks who run and commune on the Poetry Storehouse for letting me be a part of the project.

Poetry & Projections - This Saturday

On Saturday I will be "reading" a poem with a projection at Happy Ending as a part of the last phase of Lit Crawl NYC. The reading starts at 8:15 and will feature poets reading with projections. Reading will be Dolan Morgan, Randall Horton, Erika Moya, and this guy. It's going to be a party, with poems. Also, it's the last night of Happy Endings before they close, which sucks, but you should come and enjoy one last night there. Ok. Dustin out.

Ashleigh the Hyperbolic Goat

Here it is, the adventures of a stick boy and his hyperbolic stick goat. Actually, they don't so much have adventures as stand still and talk. But, you know, it's a goat and a boy talking. So that's good.

I made this little zine. You can get issue #1 (that sounds like it's a thing....it's probably not) for $2 here. Or you can mention it to me when you see me and I'll just give you one.

It's called Ashleigh the Hyperbolic Goat. This is an image from one of the pages. That's all.

Oh, and a made a home for it on Tumblr, in case I decide to do more. I won't, but, you know, what if I do? It's HyperbolicGoat.Tumblr.com.

Everything Oz



I've got a poem up over at Voicemail Poems called "Everything Oz." A different version of this poem appeared over at H_NGM_N a while back. I've updated it and it's that version exists as audio on an answering machine now.

That doesn't really have anything to do with James Franco or the Wizard of Oz I guess, but, you know, pictures!

That's all for now. Back to being a dad. (This change has not made me start to like Wilco.)

Upcoming Readings

I've got a few readings coming up and I thought I'd say them all as fast I can in a single breath. Ok. Inhale.

On July 25th I'm reading at the Five [Quarterly] First Birthday Party. I've got a poem in their upcoming issue (and was a finalist for their chapbook prize) and this'll be a good time. It starts at 7pm at 61 Local in Brooklyn.

Then I'll be reading (again with 5/Q) on July 27th at the New York Poetry Festival at 2:40pm. Also, good times. (And Ashleigh is going to be reading with the COUPLET Reading Series on Sunday.)

And on August 3rd I'm reading as a part of a marathon reading of Stanislaw Lem's Solaris, put together by the Atlas Review and the Marina Abromovic Institute. This goes from 2:30-10:30pm.
