Jordan Stempleman poem in new jubilat
The new issue of jubilat is out in print and features a poem from Jordan Stempleman, available on their website as a preview. It starts a little something like this:
It looks like I’ve done something terrible,
unforgivable, but all I’ve done is butchered
a pomegranate while listening to cartoons.
Who really gives a shit about fruit and its
triumphant preciousness, its leaking, its
lies about what I am and what I have done?
Poems fell out of Jason Bredle…
and into the world this month and we can’t let them go unnoticed by this tumblr!
In Gulf Coast.
In The Fiddleback.
In the new Sixth Finch, Jordan Stempleman…
gets a little rowdy, a little sad, and a whole lot of awesome. POEM IS HERE
What happened is I killed something in the swamp.
I thought of danger, and I kicked something.
I thought of what should be drained, and I killed
one meat of peach, one unfinished child.
