Tupelo Press 30/30 Project + Art + PoemCard

I’ve been selected to be one of Tupelo Press’ 30/30 Project poets for March. 30 poems in 30 days going to their rather larger-than-mine platform/audience. Part of the deal is that I also make an effort to fundraise for them. One of the options is a year’s subscription series (9 books for $99, & you can choose from prior years back to 2009 as well). Tupelo Press is a non-profit press and they’ll be setting a page up for that through Network for Good. This will be my first non-self publishing credit other than the short-lived Purple Pig Lit ezine.

Meanwhile, to get the Message of the Days (target: ~2.5 a week) I post to Psychic Fugue Studio by email, occasional announcements, and a copy of the 3 sample poems and bio that got me the gig, please fill out the contact form at bottom. I’ll be using MailChimp, and I don’t really know how it works yet, but unsubscribe links should be included in every email.

They went by hex, they went
by text, they went with art
& nitrous carts, they went along
on callousy foots. They found
the Flots that gobbled dots, they
knew who was the man to see,
they altered coats and rolled up
goats, they had too many shots
for me. They knew the time,
it didn’t rhyme, but each
loose cannon heard his chime,
and in the end, your ear to bend,
your coat, your heart, your
mind, push send. A fallow
field, a toe unfelt, a time to dance…

Seeding Chaotic/Emergent Information Flows: another method (++addendum,++)

Relevant post on main blog Mindfire Cantata to do with the writing of incantations or what-have-you on paper money

Have a bunch of cards typed up that were sent some time ago. But my routine fell apart. Then I decided to try and submit to the top 50 lit mags according to Every Writers Resource in a short period.. so pondered saving the texts for submissions mining. Progress halting.

(not to go into all the endless details)

Also have a stack ready to mail, except still needing numbering, typing up, and links. Missed target to complete sending the whole battery for delivery pre-inauguration. But I imagine this serves the over-arching flow the Unity of the Multiverse in some fashions…

Aside from the ones I’ve addressed & set aside for when I complete my ebook revision, the remaining card stack after the completion of Series B is small (80ish at a guess). And I may repurpose some for after the ebook, DC area bookshops. I think I will do some more postcards after. Stay tuned. I’ll post something. Have one post of an idea for flash mobs and the card text that inspired it from a long-delivered missive ready. But I’ll do another card series at some point after, though may limit the focus (was thinking ‘order only 250?’ but realizing 1000 costs little more than 250, I figure I may get the whole K, but limit the focus on the project. This is largely contingent on ‘WHEN COOPER GETS A JOB’, though (hopefully very soon).

Additionally, 2nd to last post over there (revolutionary medicine/communication ideas! {likely to work. hope so very much}), Untested Novel No-Tech Communication System for Non-Speaking ALS Patients including with Diminished Eye Gaze Control

Additionally, real simple & inexpensive mass mailing program: Every Door Direct Mail a USPS service .. you send to an entire mail route, but must be able to deliver the post to a post office. But much lower barrier to entry than than traditional bulk mail systems. If combined with Print on Demand – Infiniprint options, could send 2-700 DIFFERENT mail pieces per blast (for a route of 500, $90 postage plus print cost).

Battle lines drawn
No art in the tubes
A line in the sand
A gender schism?
A lot for me to handle
No one speaks into the silence of dreams
Nuclear armed states
Plushies and demented crews
Blocking people who disagree with you is not the way.
——–
The tubes require and respline

Campaign to small businesses is not
Dream – Writing for others is the best dream – Fortune … Also cut out comics
Playfulness is important. Natural magic. Allow yourself to be receptive,
….. fertil, overflowing with grace
Stop setting Artificial boundaries between the aspects
The website is enough
Poetry and playfulness and naturalmagic, fertility in the text blocks
Campaign to climate scientists not productive at this time
Release writing to small presses and lit journals. They want your
….. submissions and not your postcards
Campaign to congress/senate is Ta-Om the Poet
Campaign to environmental activists is bright courage
Campaign to newspapers is radiant healing
You are ready for initiation to the next stage
The website is enough, and get ready for things to become
….. unstuck and begin moving very fast
Consider taking a break from the postcards to get other
….. stuff done
You have more time when homework is done
Making chunks of time makes things go faster
[page break]
You could be making a big splat on social media and not
….. know it…
Let twitter go for awhile?
Scriggle your posts
Money making enterprises per the whiteboard
What was the reversed death card for?
The initiation card was a jump card
At peace with my past… ?
Deja Vu… Dreams coming back
Such dreams with self managed medications
Not letting things end also…
Cannot set unset inappropriate boundaries when other
….. people are the makers. Artificial boundaries.
Death – perhaps gather email addresses for direct help
….. requests, not postcards, and just send them
….. all the same letter.
Can reach St Vincent’s record label if you write a letter
——–
Visit by the end
Do not concern yourself with those who treat you poorly
No where does it say not to make friends –
But the time is not now.
Clue in and consider, retrace and demand
Get mail more often,
Refine and gloam
Allow your puzzles to be written without checks
Haste makes waste, and post is toasted
Create and align, tool up and be
Not one to resign early –
Nor to give up without a fight =
Diacetyl morphine
Chill and respline
Code and repair

344th Card

From a Kentuckian
Elevate, but do not res-
pire. Close the shop and
piece together your thou-
ghts. Be not overslow,
but do stop and consider
where you might wish to
be in a few years. Make
it not a piece of theory,
but a piece of business.
Reach out and assemble
cards. The campaign is not
worth it monetarily. Why then?

342nd Card

From a Kentuckian
Not a submission! Alley
ways return with hopes,
but [offensive censored]
closures of mind are non-
refundable. See night
and know rocket-bliss.
Apple denies you, but no
one takes you seriously.
All diminishment of terms
is bought and stolen from
your networks. Ballyhoo!!

Sent to a Kentucky small press that offensively presumptuously tells their submitting poets they have to use dictionary spellings (and even which dictionary). HA! But they do over 20 titles per year… by CreateSpace…

343rd Card

From a Kentuckian
Your itemized deductions
will always fail you, yet
your taxes are never sp-
ent on your landscaping.
Avoid hazards… Requ-
ire elementary agreement.
See in the mirror Hakim
Bey. Request details
upon receipt. No allit-
eration of clues is perm-
itted. But Uber allows Ballyhoo

Strategy continues to evolve
Site traffic has been surg-
ing, and site index is much
improved, listing all my st-
uff online. New site (on
front) doing very respect-
ably on its fourth day. 2
Critics so far have been un-
able to provide proper
citations. But did add some
more info to address. Neglec-
ting homework. Need to fix that.

The Earth could perhaps
run out of oxygen. Check
out site on front. Now, for
a poem: Ideologically distinct
from the other enforcers,
he restrained himself and
rebuilt and retooled and
hotlinked. Closure of infanti-
cide was not told or thought
much, but weasels in the
wires took the reverse
cowgirl to the extreme.
Affiliate linking is bogus. La!

Text:
One by one go the killer
bees, and three by three the
ants. 5×5 go the piskies
in formation, and never
mentioned in the EULA
were the bees. Signs in the
sky call your name, and tub-
eriffic calliopes drain the
notes from the wind. All
together we play, and alt-
ogether we dances. Witches
in wineries and nettles retire.

Methodical cyclotrons of

ether and replace us. Imp
ossible to find donors this
way. Which way is up is
relative though. Theoretical
influence of anarchism. Too
many archetypes to list.
DREAM TELEPATHY! Words

replaced. Not unwilling to
submit but no time, no time.

Germany is reading my bitlinks reliably, some days exceeding US. Others not registering much in the bitly.com app. 12ish clicks a day plus or minus (which includes typing them in, I think?) But I didn’t use the bitlinks when I compiled everything on Psychic Fugue Studio. Save the Oxygen .org coming within a couple days I think. And I am going to get with the program of End Fossil Fuel Subsidies. [[UPDATE: Also doing a bit more in the way of emailing environmental organizations, or when whoever I want to send to has no snail mail address]]
