In response to Fred Jung's query: "Gangsterism," you have recorded five parts thus far."

Well, the "Gangsterisms" are, as I was saying before, my compositions are chameleon like in a lot of ways. I started out with "Gangsterism on Canvas" (Soundtrack to Human Motion) and that piece is just based on one of Andrew Hill's compositions, "Erato."

Jason Moran

(—after Moran’s Gangsterism on Canvas)

Appropriate this variant ensemble of stroking renditions,
vertical silhouette of
progressive emotional mobility
too (or)
in the muscular fascination with overwhelming(taking) upon contract with mind and hands’ instructive holding

to verbalize or (though: nonviolent, the purple presented, —unbruise but parallel the thought to a lilac’s expressive hankering)

recreate a rhythm of noted desegregation
a near-plagiarized notion to connect via metaphor or faculty of wandering

(here: not the wandering of quotidian aimless; the wandering expression to unfold architectural
premises of enveloping connections)

personal this expressive interpretation
valid and valued
: intuitive moments then erased as to

withdraw, wholly.

"I guess what it comes down to is, my music is different: the way I write, the way I compose, the way I deal with dynamics, the way I organize the other players in my group is just different."

Matthew Shipp

(While listening to Shipp’s Merge)

Of the laughter


formation intuitive hindsight : positioned here relevance
curtails logic’s
winding hands of creating concrete syllables, persuasion the corporeal
fascination reveals
curtained contours
the blend and bodily momentum hibernating surplus
certainty evolves (involves certainly) the burn of the system, the segregated fathoms
of muted human tongue
burgeoned though relocating redirected emotion

spun as permissive

"A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”

Paul Cezanne

(—after Cezanne’s The House with Burst Walls)

of the rumored dimensions

queries or

fascinations one’s tongue

“Work is love made visible.”

Kahlil Gibran

Relinquish the anti-cleansed rendition of the body’s immobility.
Stagnant whitewash
vocal as a whisper’s repeated mantra, multiplied or pluralized vendettas
movement as a sacred rejection, hoping then the

slouching spine becomes interrelated syllables of a prose worth
interpreting. Yet
how or
why the partition opens:

subsequent upon rejuvenated
laughter, the cleanse of whitened solidity
praise or precise functionality of endeavored numerosity.

Moth Money Declaration

collecting what's
bursting in on that comma
see — spidery sea
dear for warmth
& a puzzle not lacking
what's usually winked away
you'll remember my pulse
by its corners
by what's kept in the blink
fly, frog — Poor Time in
a part for all
largest stillest shadow
at last talking, officer
I twist apart small bodies
by the hour for a clue
flowers, I opined,
walk the storm down
their thorns are tonic
for the multitudes
what is face-down will
no longer get oil from me

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

Stand Pipe Valvoline

A test of ink blots showcased flexitude. She only half grasped
tulip bulbs plastic in the land. One guess or two retracted
tidy wisdom in past tense. Amid refractive shop talk, where
the lines of coast remain as soggy as their reputation. Correspondence
as matter of course. Intuited how people talk about their mental states
as in arrears. What kind of of an announcer has no speech impediment?
The lorry whisks past, people hear their thoughts resist the dark.
A backward pass endorses hesitation by the enemy. I wish I knew
technique. "My bad." I only hope (I dream) that you might overcome
your tendency to let your hairline keep receding. Let's watch the tape.
Let's sip our coffee thick with sweetness. Let's observe an oboe reed
instead. Now the overturn becomes "a close call." I wish the novel I am
reading would just stop. Whose aptitude is this anyway?

Sweatshot, pilot light, new energy called hybrid green

Sheila E. Murphy

poems || Philip Byron Oakes

Bull’s Eye

Palatable presumptions putting a weltanschaung
in the window with a little dirt to roll around in.
Friend to the festoonery pointing past pain at what
the pedestrians can see. The slow crawl of traffic
reflected back upon at walking speed, down aisles
of produce making do as food for thinking so. That
parameters hold water to their promise, of a
wading pool of candidates to be anointed by tides
of foreseeable change. A trajectory checked in the
glass for alien incursions into the homecoming of
causes dressed in the effects they’ve earned.
Abiding by what’s possible measured in response
to expectations of the miracle growth of rare
gems on the windowdressed moon. Question
marks left on the way it is as put together
by a belief there is a center the swirl
of the earth holds dear.

Taking the Q

A roundtrip summons quartering horses for barbeque
in the fatted slant of summer light. The joke’s angle of
incline to be lenient with the numbing, when the hurt
comes all at once. Virtual mayhem breaking chimera
bones. Chock full circle life leaves wafting from the
center to the whole. As if humpty’s world were symmetrical.
The score kept in formaldehyde. A slow turning pages in the
book that doesn’t come by way of explanation. Colors
holstered. A Braille of aroma. Fortnights without a stick to
hide behind. Polka dotting a myth with an ellipsis. Was it
murder? Or something serious. Rounding up the smell of
bread. One branch past the tree’s ability to extend its
welcome to those unable to take wing in the thought.

poems || John Pursch

Flickers of Noon

Thumping on a meat cavern, flippant segues give a rotating blueberry to swollen trampolines, hemming in the nuances of small cheese and mobile, ribald illusions. Cramped by stolen threads of fashionable alibis, spent into cornfields with rows of plastic hairlines, a simpering can of melted vermin acts otherworldly, climbing up a frieze of chilly happiness, speaking candidly to the venous vineyard's sweltering apple cart. Soiling grass parades in tourniquets, grappling onto a smell of cantering anions, pickled but so serene. Frittering away half a lunar simpleton, creators from a bygone Popsicle dream of statistical jeers and felonious animals, handling flickers of noon with righteous, electrical stammering. Crawl spaces light up, tumble to the street, escape the rush of penal taxi cabs gone arid, and spin the galaxy, intently peering at airborne mothballs. Alternating green and shifty velour chariots, a circadian motif gambles on clear, incandescent oglers, hiring a shabby specimen within office limits. Lakes covet slag, beach an exposed whale, christen a purple raincoat with vast explosives, and hurtle minimal need into dirges of serrated neglect. Orphans bite well heads, teething till they terrify a tramcar, and clot a misshapen alley's penultimate dumpster. Dire and windswept, glowing portents loom queerly over septic nadirs of political gist, exhorting even the greyhound's last, dystopian gesture, plying the backlit, stellar jigsaw for fuel and another grand, fallacious trade. But billowing canisters of lathe filings, ubiquitous in their culottes, can't mend the random, wholesome yelps of cruising caterers, leaving the shattered skyline quite bereft, incarnadine and plowed asunder.

Fast Dhaka fatwa–
dowel cynical.
Folia domain dead dowse
the indrawn coypu flea cento saluki of fish heads is manlike
The FASO went to Fahd and ate defogs.
Whilst a monist shriven a lisp.
Lets handoff height weave trivia pals doze mamba bevy.

Lawyer Vacation

Outgun the gushy butyl of the witch.
Lekythus chinchy iota skives.
Jocund oeuvre oaten in posadas.
Ones opine outkicks otiose woofers.
It abuts the kidding legist an–
elysian podia.
Organs begin a boycott.
Instep kite ode.
Nicked rightly.

Crowd Control

Blindly firing cubed rouge fatalities–
This chair flew far beyond eyes–
freely frantic globs of discoursed relief.
Fabulous festers seek suffering
amusing red buff dinosaurs.
We skipped.

ordinariness compromise
the idea staying

cannibal willing to

transformation because he


street saving

too intricate they
know green spite
would do the sum

when discussing
improbable morning
upon its face

thanks for our
post-traumatic stress
a practical joker

responsible torture

you connect the whisper
by the bell
when the new wonders
sometimes having red-lined
shoes laid it out

already generations hope
the mark of passages

corruption remained a
forgotten disabled wave
like people society puzzles
in neutrality
all waiting arrivals

a world
a street

no necessities supported
foundation being ghostlike
time like difference abandons
one displaced architect
stealing nothing

genius museum swallowed
drawn paradise

flower eloquently soft
transparent limit dislodged
thus distance enquired
half-shut art
nobly new order remains chaos
ideologies fucking kings

o point
o joke

physical pieces compelled sides
comprising everything

hi blasé

altered market
duality flinching
rain festivals tripped

knives deterritorialize
hidden anchors

stoic multiplication crowds
windowless situations
sentimental imperialism
thought structure drunk

drive a circus
leap fountains
(continued same stanza)
in suburbs

a fugue
a world

ornamental anxiety surges
tears connection
monoculture be pavement
on pure duration

breasts discovering graffiti

poem || David Jalajel


any number of obscure old mountain
ranges from having their freshwater spread
too far defined by smart tags on the dotted
line beneath a text alerts you when
and where spooled strings of surplus work lights start
to glow along professionals providing
papers on the judiciary's rules
require each party to the case with certain
claims to ascertain the terms they want
omitted and black boxed a little to
the left brings down your large green plotting sketched
right here your checkered chin and fingers muddied
through a hundred yards of concrete culverts
deliver into their most hidden heights

poems || Felino A. Soriano

Analyzed Depictions 18

“In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.”
Robert Lynd

(In contemplation of Marion Rose’s painting Lone Raven)

Or watch

from window of an antiquated angle, shadow-mold hearsay conducting reverence
wisdom from escalated vibrations causation in circumference of

designated error.

Analyzed Depictions 19

“The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.”
Bertrand Russell


oval, radial premise of skin-stalled texture
relaying orange-brown collocated empathy

minor struggle the
philosopher explains into examinational forays

trust from or with
valiant immobilization
cultural friction upon delivering delineation’s
motive to increase stilled fractions of the stone’s whole

illusory rumination.

Analyzed Depictions 20

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Within language
syllables become as do children’s blocks
elaborate upon geometric meaning
angled though
salvation varies into incorporated
variant modality of italicized devotion. Outside

pastel carriers frequent scented meanings. Inside the
child alters mention of the poems’ primitive collaboration: sound similar
multiple wings of the fluttering example
pecking into kiss the red red blossom leaning into window’s
unexpected clarity.

Analyzed Depictions 21

“My painting carries with it the message of pain.”
Frida Kahlo

Opinion of analytical dimension, broken this
spine of foundational splay
confinement displaced curvature of
momentum, serenade rhythm (of a silhouetted fathom, thin, silver, unshadow, however)

I designed by nurturing
multiple examples
who’ve awoken with thorns into wilted breathing we’re two-collocated
versions of the mirror’s misleading dissertation.

Analyzed Depictions 22

“Everything's fine today, that is our illusion.”

An abbreviated death awaits
rectangular reason upon the ball of thought to coerce exit, inexistent.

Today I have halved my warnings
anxiety beyond realm of medical classification. Skin
to skin of material’s modular instances, burn
then succeed in the dryness of heal’s
articulating wedge.

Formulations guide as if gilded (faith-called collaboration of collocated earnings)
and the method of this slightest moment
created biased knowledge and designated
worry, wearing the brightened exhale of
death’s awkward cease sans
serenade of voice and flesh.

Extraterrestrial Laughter

The thing you want and and how it was.Inward to the thing as if by now-by reflex.

Collective punishment-that where it stands now-you mean he weighed me against all the others.Thats where it stands now-y.Youmean he he weighed me against all the others.thats where I stands.Did something evil.WHEN IT TURNS TO HATE.(FROM THE CONTAINER

Never seen this done before.The thing you want is the ultimate relation- he turned inward to the thing. Confused by what
he felt- that was it. In that element,its root came with with it.I NEARLY DIED< MY< neckIn the air.

He discovered that he had cbeen cremayed.To complicated to be-the placente

Was running through you're veins.

Long quivering, he needed a lot of Gin......the chair watched him die.

Jaded apple forecast elimanated at the placente.Krsna fornicates and spread epifanies,lucky the penprick showed reminiencs.the prince of the Air ran a 200hour on his theater screen.Donkey jabberwakied in two dimensions,No dilemnas ,just astral anomilies, sordid massive mindrape the signals Brain waves.

The frozen caricuture melted into a fountain as 23 white doves flew through the atmosphere at the speed of light meeting Lady Space the directive.

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

We Used to Be Fifth Largest, Now We're Sixth

I live in a place crossed off the map by you. We've deflected
scurvy, all the Vita-C. The pursuit of health resembles lip gloss,
every little botanist one can abide. Across from here are signs of life:
a chic night spot where one sips quite robust red wine, a sports bar,
and a used and vintage bookstore, celebrating 21 years. I asked
the man with one usual eye about Dick and Jane. He said there's
a collection of the very same in back, in addition to the volumes on
display below the counter just below the register, which prompted
my idea. We each declare that we looked forward to the plot
when young and reading those. I rose at 5:00 a.m. to read
numerous pages before school. I was in the store while the chic
restaurant hand crafted chicken meatballs with marinara sauce.
I bought a tribute to our Gertrude. I bought a mystery starring V.I.
By the time I ventured to pick up my food, nothing was ready, quite.
This evening, I forgot to close the shades. The rooms absorb this

Semicolons being swept up from linoleum, the break we have awaited

The Birth Of Liquid Desires

Herr Bibliothekarius
ciphery & unashamed
tells himself
he is an insect poet
ciphery & unashamed
hidden dainty from storm

his story's axe men
ciphery & unashamed
overstay their welcome

his tale's rose,
antique and
is everywhere
ciphery & unashamed
tho no mask for his cries
ciphery & unashamed:

"the axe men they're my above in name
and wearing shapes I paused when
still resistless newborns, yet the unimagined
is scanty and is of seraphs dry"

2 poems || John Pursch

Portents of a Triad

Whose albedo rose to tender
a meek, unwavering plethora
of high, explosive catamarans,
slipping soiled and generous
along the fractal divan?

Bells toll the overgrown ransom
with terpsichorean tumbleweeds,
excoriating the newly pungent,
beaten paths and sandbars
of another harlot's repose.

Simply selected, a hambone lands
just one strike short of a vacuous plenitude,
capsizing in heaps of corn and wrenches,
strewn with defective manure.

Whose mannerisms prompted
the crepe to serenade a hemlock vendor
with tartar and bygones,
all for the hamper's latent mead?

When capsules blend and milk
the corner dowager's fickle yachtsmen,
dallying portents of a triad
will call for dangling specimens,
in spadices and nocturnal missives.

Rippling, Ergonomic Specials

In eminent oafs, we find
a nasal predilection for soft and stultifying butter,
pressed into fine mattresses of cool, analogous butane,
fingered with a jelly roll's pleasing scream.

Warm deluges clip the gargling embryo's
fluid mention of times gone cosmic,
spatter a fabric of need with quibbling Nerf pencils,
and strafe a cowboy's plentiful unguent
with toiling moon patrols, miffing every
basement queen's filibustering rotunda.

Amped on rippling, ergonomic specials,
a boardroom janitor heals the nattering minions
in seven cities of sheer delight,
reducing the urban laughter
to a smooth marble of mild intent.

poems || Vernon Frazer


Terrible and round with glee,
he raised his straw erect, bleeding
contortions blind.

Allegro, roared the mark on their proper shape.

Beside them at first
black bees and a wise donkey remained,
flickering fall persistence.

Middle-aged Berkshire Napoleons seemed to hear me:

three hairs
from a million dollars per hour,
home again.

Delete this.

You must stop going the first time,
roared the mark, perched on its surface.

It seemed to hear me with that!

Australians eye dogcarts
clutching any form resulting
from Kansas: conversion
by any living fight club

in honor of provincial borders

beside them at first. Right now,
trademark license fee or else:
half-pay, cabby.

Despite these words, we’re gone.

Order of the Day

Sonic platelet du jour
remands custodial casements

chronic retail demands
detailed statements

berating fiction as fact

when chronic truisms demand
their far shore, adhering to the
sand-filled cracking of resume

gauntlets pursued as shaking
poor placements misconstrued

branding delinquent repartee
play in the fields of the gored

attacking the breaking diction

chronically late to implore
placement as basic command

Ending with a Critique of Pure

Spitting belfries shatter lumen frenzy pits.
A scooter, though the pace may stream
its derby, rollers caning platform shoe norms
a priori. Penciled fire to the curving deck,
wrecking transfer gumbo. To facile ostinato

makers or tandem reflex tangent, patterns
marooned on the glare of a sunplex platter
shared among flattering emanations
the corollary zeal of irrational bondage
during afternoon's delay. Staked to influx

obdurate passengers stare reciprocity
matters squarely in the plectrum, a splendor
more vivid than scattered batons on rivets
doored to irate pectoral entries, floored
as a relayed position slowly staving face

pavement where the ladder pares down
the drivel hoop to hidden baskets weaving
text margins, no flourish appended next
to the eagle font. Its nourishing largesse
lent the matter a frightening sum from

grinning necklace teeth, darkened
in reluctant shadows plodding regal
in their weight and stride. Beneath late
multiplicity shadings, mandala carvings
mutter full splendor marshes. Under

tread, looming pamphlets clattering
the bit, noisy teeth unfurled a spectrum
ordinary feelings flicker, bare light left
to pivot against the shadow’s late glide
to scatter noumenal envy under cant.

On Deadline

A cold wall stutter
intoned, its pontificated glyph

marked the surfeit’s rendered portent:

adagio lumens,
the nicety flailing the flags
of past gallantry,

a wherewithal enamored in the knot.

No freelance desists rafting
past mention of durable utterance

staking amoral claim
to lifting measured legends
past drywall custom

or fledgling nuance cast ashore

nor gall to mutter
the stale fragrance the memoir

brings to utter the present rift

Too Near, Too Far

Darker mirrors, template massage
steer the lowering chordata swarms
through seepage emporia slated

to worm canister fiddles down
the button path. Leading zippers
to rippling department operetta

scores. Punctuations erectile as
guest incursions mount specific
vagaries on time. Slots allotted

their camel hump add unvaried
stumbles to laminated polymers
imprint glucose mirrors on the fly,

no ointment too good for the recent.
The tune picks its lonely rapture, a
touch too near the breath of lapel.

“I don't think about art when I'm working. I try to think about life.”
Jean-Michel Basquiat

(While interacting with Basquiat’s Untitled (Angel), 1982)

What risen ascent prescribed arms of my querying manner? Position, thus the advantage
of literal decision, aggregate.

canvassed caressed
mores, diligent from vantage of popular connotation (or, untruth victim a tongue dissolves
eyes, the eyes
together paralleled death and the
discriminatory fathoms, consoling
recent disbelief of faith’s moribund reaction:

fiction resolves
the mind’s inarticulate variants
—amalgamation chaos clustering as wings provide clarity of noon’s specific


Analyzed Depictions 11

“Art is a harmony parallel with nature.”
Paul Cézanne

(While interacting with Cézanne’s Large Oak)

brief-waving spectrum of welcoming artistic avifauna.

Land or become the

Of scent locating hybrid grass’ brown|heavy-birth pigmentation

Analyzed Depictions 12

“A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.”
Khalil Gibran

In the stagnant spectrum of marginalization, certain syncopation
violently (though of the gentle chaos curtailing an adjective’s specialized compunction)

exporting diatribes and vocal persistence creating
belt of tightening grasp among
a whisper of the body’s logical

Analyzed Depictions 13

“Patience: A minor form of despair disguised as a virtue.”
Ambrose Bierce

Material of the mortal juxtaposition, caliber-faith
rendition moves upon unmoving theory’s
fermented retaliation. Aspired
vivid recalls the
memory suspends judgment of eerie
vocalization, waiting as does a stone’s
years’ of adaptation, mineral sequence
colliding into patina’s moral revise of
wisdom’s reconcilable dexterity.

Analyzed Depictions 14

“I am a part of all that I have met.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Regarding burgeoned scrolls the fingers
maintain gifted concepts



overwhelm the
mind with certain flesh of
remembering adaptation.

Honey Voice

for Peter Ganick

I spoon organic honey, raw and doused with cinnamon, into my singing, to resuscitate the mezzo voice. Come hither, say the vocal cords, come bother me awake unto the bold director in a civic choir about to lull a snapshot audience to its sotto sleep Filtration systems live through brave new brackets holding pose. The only imposition I can weather is notation to adapt my thought to song modules to be rung through little hemispheres of composition. I have long been able to sit still, and yet I scamper, I invite my students to mimesis of an eager motion. When I sing I am indelible. And when I sleep I dream new song. I have a slide rule in my sympathies, I glide away from cause. I break rules because they're mine. I limber my way through the aisles and show the population what they represent a sample of. I lose my train of thinking on a preposition. When I speak I may have sung. I whistle some, I scurry through endowed chairs, winter in the desert, summer there. I practice being healed when I am healing. Bees accumulate on blossoms I can name. The jars replete with honey hold their pose on shelves I raid without compunction, for I pay, we pay, limboic antlers also pay. The screech owl leaves a mood of being young synonymous with wise, cracked like a sculpture we have molded to artistic hands. Forgive in-situ and my way of work in play. My life bred day bed leaves me to role play my sainthood during light of day.

Quasi-methodical doldrums weighing slivers less of matter find a voice to say

Sheila E. Murphy
