Another fine month, another fine digest.
A nice mix of familiar and new voices on the Front Page picks...
Plus something new: a guest Ramble... no longer will it just be Kirk
spouting off...instead, lots of new and exciting people will be spouting off!
Front Page Picks
By Kirk, Blender-Keeper.
...on a conspiratorial, perplexed way of saying "Hi"
- In Verse
Inspired by the previous work; plays on the idea of an
"Inverse" relationhip between the trueness of feeling
and the writing it spurs.
- Lost Lagoon
Another by Toklas.
- Prairie Storm
- The Man and the Mermaid
- Two by Calypso. Even the name "Calypso" reflects a link between the natural and the supernatural.
- In the Forest
- I Love a Woman
Two by mojave. I feel that these also explore that natural/mystical territory.
- The Hiding Place
An excellent use of a "torrent of words" technique.
- Fish With No Names
By Misti Velvet Rainwater.
"Written while drunk on cheap wine"
- our movie
By Braeden .
- Simplicity works.
- The Chaos Of My Day
I think this one taps into the existential crises I've been having lately...
- Driven love
By billie lee.
I think this might have been cleaner without the final 2 lines, still, a charged work.
- sidewalk chalk
By sarah email@example.com.
A nicely concrete image to end this month's Front Page Picks with.
Heart on Sleeve Corner
- All the remaining heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
