more  marvelous  men  poets

i am pleased to be featuring some of  the most creative,  talented,  brilliant  {really!}  poets of  our time.  i have been fortunate over the past two and a half years to meet this amazing group of  people through twitter and their blogs.  not only are they writers who excite and enchant and entrance their readers,  they are,  one and all,  nice people who are supportive of  everyone in our online poetry community.  the “age of  technology”  has,  in fact,  facilitated the spread of  the ARTS! ~  poetry,  photography,  art,  prose,  music…   i have friends i have yet to meet face-to-face from all around the world.  day or night,  you can visit their blogs and be transported to another time or place or frame of  mind with just a few clicks of  a mouse.  i find it thrilling!  and i believe you will find it equally thrilling to discover their words.

just click on the  “Read More”  links on each poem to be taken to a new tab or window to read the rest of  the poem on the author’s blog.  if  you enjoy what you read,  please leave a comment on their blog to let them know.  { you don’t have to say you saw them here. }  i am truly honored that these wonderful people agreed to be featured on my blog ~  my gratitude to them all.

and thank you for coming to our celebration ~  enjoy!

Christmas Eve of  the Living Dead    by   simonscotland

‘T was the night before Christmas,

When all through the house

Not a creature was stirring

Except a small mouse

Now this was quite odd

As a matter of fact

featured poet:

Steve  Isaak

Steve Isaak  is a published writer of  poetry,  prose  and erotica.  i love his poetry  { to find it on his blog   READING & WRITING BY PUB LIGHT  click on the LABEL  POEMS   in his right sidebar.}  on Wednesdays Steve publishes short stories by other writers  { no poetry }  on his blog  Microstory A Week  { click  HERE for submission guidelines }  if  your story is selected for publication,  he will then provide exposure on both of  his blogs and Steve’s  facebook page  for links to any works which you get published elsewhere,  too.  { Steve has been kind enough to publish several prose pieces of  mine. }

Steve’s personal taste as he describes it is ~

“My favored genres, the ones that really make me go wow are:  – speculative — i.e., stuff that’s Twilight Zone-ish, not quite “hard[-technology]” science, but with “what if. . .?” elements infused with that science-fiction-ish feel. . . stuff with “edge” but doesn’t completely break from traditional/solid story telling – but doesn’t spoonfeed the reader, either.”

here is the official bio from Steve’s blogs ~

Steve Isaak has published a hundred and sixty poems and stories, in print and on the Net. His work, sometimes by-lined as “Nikki Isaak”, has been published on the adult websites   Erotica Readers & Writers Association,   Flashes in the Dark,    Every Night Erotica,    Divine Pleasures    among others.  He is the author of three paperback anthologies    Can’t sleep: poems, 1987 – 2007,    Charging the scarlet b-sides: microsex stories & poems    and the forthcoming Nightwired: poems as well as the editor of two blogs:   Microstory A Week  and  READING & WRITING BY PUBLIGHT.”

Yesterday don’t mean/tell-little  by   Steve Isaak

Tell me these cuts are from living,

Behind the wheel, 2011  by   Steve Isaak

 Another Livermore to Sparks trip,
another family reunion:

while my beautiful girlfriend drives, sings

Scenter of baked mysteries: ginger drunge XIII  by   Steve Isaak

Dreamtime night hike, mix of now and twelve years back – my friend, Dennis, and I smoke a heady exhaled bowl, while walking a bike path from the parking lot, where he left his orange cream, engine erratic car, to an outdoor movie theater, its elevated dimly lit screen looming a quarter mile away.

Dennis hums a Celine Michael with Metallica song, “My Faithful Heart Will Roam On”, the theme ballad of the flick we’re going to see, Interview with a Titanic Vampire II: Sleepaway Cruise, where a “hunky” (according to Dennis) Tom DiCaprio has reprised his role of Felissa Baker, a gender-mad fangster.

“Oh, shut up,” I say, smiling. “We only listened to your stupid song thirteen times on the way here. I thought only girls went in for that bullstuff!”

Twelve,” Dennis insists, laughing, “Learn how to count, hetero-boy!”

One of the other movie-goers…..Read More
