THIS WILL BE OUR LAST GOODBYE



Word is, Bill will be drastically altering KSE next year to focus on his own kick-ass work.  As it stands, HEATHEN TONGUE will be the last handmade chapbook published by him under this imprint.  Who are you to pass up this chance to own a piece of history?  Limited amounts available, so get a copy before everyone you know laughs at you and 
calls you a fool...…

PEELING OFF THE THIN SKIN



An actual non-form rejection letter I got this week.  Valid, maybe, but a little snarky.  Personally, I stand by my work as entirely unique.  Needless to say, I had to snark back.  Good fun!!  

Among the more annoying things about this episode was that this particular editor's website was filled with multiple examples of fairly generic milquetoast poetry.  In my response-snark, I told him (?) that I thought these poems were cries for help on the publisher's part, and not artistic statements.  

Oh, the cleverness of me......


Actually, I was stunned to get a personalized rejection letter, so it took a while for the contents of it to actually sink in, and to realize I was being smacked down.  This must be why poets kill themselves....





"lol! this must be #100 of the same set of poems this week. is there a master computer program somewhere spitting this stuff out? Probably a web app. must be free of cost, there's just too many ramblings like these. 


What I want from you is : "a poem he should but won’t write"


That's the one that will be different than everyone else's."

IN THE KINGDOM OF OBLIVION WE WILL ALL BE MADE HOLY



Except for those of us that go up against the wall in the revolution, that is.

In the meantime, here's some new sass at Terror House
