-- from an ongoing conversation with a man I greatly respect, a Vietnam vet, a pacifist, who among other uncharacteristic things has said he hopes Bush gets assassinated, such is the fever of his passion
-- he and others have pointed out the irony of saying to cut-and-run in Iraq will embolden terrorists when the war itself has been a boon to extremist recruiting in Iraq and elsewhere, as well as providing a "state-of-the-art" training ground

For me it is a pleasure to announce the third stage of the homage at 10 years of the death of our dear friend and poet Guillermo Deisler.
The first stage was the space in the website BOEK861 www.boek861.com for firm pictures. The second stage was the Hartmut Andryczuk´s website http://www.hybriden-verlag.de/hybriden/seiten/for_universe.html for pictures in movement. The fourth and last stage will be carried out in Santiago de Chile with a series of poetic and reminders events organized by the Forum of Chilean Writers during the month of October, 2005.
Now evening out after the first frenetic days of the new school year (believe it or not, I love 'em, growing first impressions, perfect plans, energies without horizons, learning fires burning -- just about everything's possible, no minds left behind ((except those residing in political offices, rearing empty heads from elected orifices, Oh Dante!))), I continue to get as much of SPORE 2.1 in place as I can.
It's still got lots of holes still. It's still got lots of room still!
I'll continue to read writing in response to paintings, sculpture, photography, performance -- lit in response to art... I'll read until Thanksgiving. I hope to get this issue out by the end of the year.
I'm especially looking for commentary about ekphrastic writing, its openings, its limitations, exemplary works previously published... Please query.
