ANNOUNCING ~ JIM CARROLL by TOM CLARK

2

cover photograph by Mary K.Greer

 

1 "A poet departs, too soon, and there is a void that will not be filled. From somewhere deep and old the tears well up in the dark night. When I met Jim in 1967 he was seventeen. He had been leading a triple life: high school All-American basketball star, heroin addict/ street hustler, poet."

 

 

The above is from Tom Clark's wee memoir of Jim Carroll newly published from Longhouse for the Spring Equinox 2010. With photographs by Bill Berkson, Mary K. Greer, and Beatrice Murch. In glossy photographic wraps, hand sewn in four colors. Ready to be slipped into your back pocket, or anyone's.

$15 ~ Limited availability

plus $3.95 shipping/handling.

Thomas Meyer

from CLAIR DE LUNE

 

Might makes right. The music escapes its plot.

Story's tyranny surrenders to a lush chromatic swoon.

An end to civilizations as we know them.

Thank god! Already (and only late spring)

the light belongs to summer.

 

Where thereis a way

there is a will.

daode jing

Not anything moonligt speaks of.

Not the dead. Hillside

at dusk flattens and rises.

No more landscape than pattern.

No more pattern than content.

No more content than form.

No more form than fondness.

wox niiinon bear teepee

but those peaks there, no, never,

'it is never summer there.'

HONOR

 

let me tell you one thing about suicide

to pull this off, you better have the same to

say this is how it all ended

every day as you bake bread

rake leaves

drive to work

return library books

tie your shoes

walk a cross walk

mail a letter

split wood

and try to sing in the shower again

nicomedes

I’ve lived my whole life by rivers and seas, and for thirty-five years on the shores of my love for Kristine. Hence the title of this book: “Bodies of Water.” Love poems to Kristine which contain water imagery and poems to rivers, to oceans...  Like a river, this small fold-out book begins with a little fold and extends into a serpentine whole—a ribbon of words. For me water gathers all, especially my love for my soul mate, my muse, my wife and lover, Kristine, with whom I’ve shared, for thirty-five years, the presence of rivers and oceans - the Amazon, the Hillsborough, the Hudson, the Piraí, the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean.

The love poems in this book are taken from a longer book I am selecting of love poems to Kristine, written over these many years and to this day. My love for Kristine was so private, so intimate, that I was inhibited from publishing them, but I have realized how absurd it is to be shy about something so central to my being. Plus, our children are old enough to read about the physical passion I have for their mother!

In love and poetry,

Nicomedes

Since 1971

Longhouse has been working as one outfit incorporating the building trades of stone work and carpentry along with publishing limited edition books, pamphlets, broadsides, postcards and anthologies of poetry--nearly everything has been given away free. The idea of free is a good one, it disappears the capital structure and allows people to finally meet one another. Grants, subscriptions and all the rest will soon prove to be more nonsense than necessary for poetry--poets can't help themselves, they write poems all the time and read the books, many go to great lengths to beg, borrow or steal a book. That's a good sign. If a small press publisher wants to work hard, many dozens of books will be readily traded each year with other publishers. Instead of goofing for grants and becoming a bureaucrat and not feeling exactly honest, the small press publisher can learn a trade, teach, grow a larger garden, drive a cab. Real people still do this. Watch this: In 1985 Longhouse took steps to sell books as a mail-order bookseller. What we sold directly spring-fed back to what Longhouse wished to publish. We joined arms with good friend Cid Corman (Origin Press) in Japan and began working globally with poets and writers. Hardcase-backwoods-types, we never gave computers or internet access a thought until one day a friend brought us to cyber-earth and explained how booksellers in the middle of nowhere can sell books over the internet to China, England and Des Moines. In many ways the system has the age old romantic quality of bookselling and reading: someone (us) wrapping the book especially and a reader (you) receiving the book slipped out of the mailer and into your hands. Bullseye. This activity was once enjoyed only by eccentrics, scholars and island types, so hop aboard. It's a brave new world. --
