"It will make you feel young again." --The New Yorker

Blender of Love Digest September 1997

Season's End...

The Indigo Girls sang "I could go crazy on a night like tonight/ When summer's begining to give up her fight" and sometimes I know just what they mean-- The Blender of Love Journal has survived its first summer and is bracing itself for the onslaught of fall into winter...

This month brings a new feature to the Blender: the Blend-O-Matic, a dispenser of tiny pieces of romantic prose and poetry. (A one- at- a- time selection from a collection of well over 100.) Give it a few clicks, you may come up with a surprise.

New Works
By Jennifer Rutherford. A monologue from a play in progress- one of the most real things I've read in a while..
Comes To Love
By Kirk, keeper of the blender. A quick verse that's already appeared in the Blend-o-Matic.
Divine Intervention
By Elissa (lilwomyn@geocities.com). "A poem written while sitting alone in an empty cafe" -- the first two stanzas have much grace.
By Rita Randazzo, Vermont poet. A short poem that balances on its last few lines.
By Jessica Papke jetson@tir.com. a piece written in the dark, another one that depends on its strong ending.
By Carlos (carlos.a.rubinstein@mci.com). described as "Jazz-like", a piece with a strange mysticism and strong sensuality.
A Glimpse
By z. A powerful metaphor.

Heart on Sleeve Corner
All the remaining heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
