A good day for a few links

by jhon baker

One of the most loving things I have ever read

take it to the pamphlets and soon Guerilla pamphlets #15 are both VERY good bets

Take it to the streets poetry – many good links here for many good volumes

Get a subscription here if you can

Always a good site

Newer press but they accept some excellent work

keep checking this store for when it opens – if you want something you’ll have to beat me to it!

another of his links

good reading in general


okay – that’s enough for today –

but lastly – it’s older than most being posted here lately but I like it.


dying roses are not broken promises


literal or not

we bled on pages

and pages and

pages of uncertain poetry.

women bleed with efficiency.


dying roses are not

broken promises as

are crumbling petals

no longer red.


– Hoc Scripsi


okay – I’m adding one today – don’t be a bully – this isn’t poetry, it’s about bullying and a very very deeply affecting story beginning on sept 24th post – read though from there to the most current – you won’t regret it and I wept openly.

tired today

by jhon baker

I am so tired today, phase one of writing room finished – music room finished…


and here I am, mic in hand, flinging myself through the air and rapidly descending toward the sidewalks and one way streets of our beloved downtown Elgin, Il.

Today I awoke to news of the death of a potentially innocent man. I have had nothing to say since and now this is all I could think of.
