Five Poems and a Manifesto

Kevin McFadden has published 5 poems and a manifesto over at the literary journal, archipelago.  Here is an excerpt from his poem, Amen:

               “Not love, some other empire:

the early attentions and the late attenuations.

But I wanted a lover, not—my abettor—

a better. The awfully big hows of your little

light whys,”

And part of his “manifesto” for Anticism:

“Anticism plays on playfulness (full synapse), the stuff on which dreams are smear’d, on which puns are spun. Its hand is heavy, its soul is light…”

I like the way he plays with language — it’s clever without becoming brainier than thou.  Definitely check out the links above to view more of his work.
