“Someplace On Anywhere Road”

Sound Library Series, Volume 75

KSE #273  (poetry chapbook)

edition of 44 copies


I began SOMEPLACE ON ANYWHERE ROAD in November 2013, worked on it while in southwestern Louisiana in January 2014, and just finished it a few days ago. With the many projects I’m involved with presently—-the work on the films of Jerry Warren, the tribute to Lou Reed poetry chapbook (which will be out soon), the release of a new music CDR every month in 2014—-I’ve put the publication and promotion of my own writings on the back burner (there are others from the second half of 2013  ready to go and already distributed to friends, but as yet unissued through KSE). However, with the release of the Fossils/Bill electronics-and-poetry CDR, some folks have asked, “hey, what are your most recent poetry chapbooks,” so I’ve now prepared this one, the most recent creation, for release…and here it is.

It’s a daybook, a collage, a soil sample, an open-field junk sculpture—-it features cameo appearances by Umberto Scalli (as played by Timothy Farrell), Andy Milligan’s Duke of Norwich, and the Sleepwalkin’ Guitars of Dan and Dale—-it tastes of pig ears, used washwater, and generic wine served by elderly ladies in red hats—-you can hear the gunshots and military overflights—-

It might provide a breadcrumb trail to some kind of liberation…then again, it may not

It’s a home-made, hand-cut and hand-assembled edition of 44 copies.

In a few months, it will have floated past you down the river, forever out of reach.

It’s authentic.

It’s perfect for those with limited attention spans who read a few words and then drift away for a spell….the next free-floating phrase-cluster will still be there when you come back down…

$6 postpaid in the US / $7 postpaid elsewhere…
