Blast Furnace, orchestrated by Rebecca Clever, has released its Summer issue, full of outstanding poets. Although gloom engulfs me these days, a serious joy emblazons my heart when I remember that my poem "Inside Metal," a naked commentary on the alienation of the Machine Era, is included in the issue. This is one of my best ever. Let me share my favorite stanza:
with dials and buttons
like a fetus in a robot’s womb.
under savage pistons,
the machine can feel you kick.
To read the rest, go to:
Blast Furnace Press
And scroll down to Sept. 10, where the Issue is located (the site is arranged in blog format).

A huge hoot of approval to Rebecca Clever on the quality and power of her latest offering.
