in continuing our poetry month extravaganza, today (day 3!) we are featuring two new poems by dallas-based poet Joe Milazzo, #4 and #11 from homeopathy for the singularity, PLUS a delightfully self-aware writing prompt! Joe will be one of many excellent poets and artists visiting / reading / celebrating in Denton on April 22 for spideweb salon's POETRY PARTY - be sure to save the date so you don't miss out! His writing prompt for you today is this: write a poem which habitually reassures itself that it means what it says.
homeopathy for the singularity
Joe Milazzo writes poetry because he believes that language is an artistic medium and the literature is social practice. He is the author of the novel Crepuscule W/ Nellie (Jaded Ibis Press) and The Habiliments (Apostrophe Books), a volume of poetry. His writings have appeared in Black Clock, Black Warrior Review, BOMB, The Collagist, Drunken Boat, Tammy, and elsewhere. He co-edits the online interdisciplinary arts journal [out of nothing], is a Contributing Editor at Entropy, curates the Other People’s Poetry reading series, and is also the proprietor of Imipolex Press. Joe lives and works in Dallas, TX, where he was born and raised. His virtual location is http://joe-milazzo.com.
