Red Mare 5 , featuring Simon Perchik this issue, is now available. Red Mare is a micropress that features a single author per issue, and a single long poem, or connected poem episodes. All covers are hand printed, and each copy is hand sewn and numbered; this issue, number 5, is an edition of 33 only. Copies are seven dollars each; however, discounts are available for purchase of multiple editions ( numbers 4--Jean Roekle-- and 5, say).

Occupy literature and support small presses.

Red Mare 6 will feature Dennis Formento, with anticipated publication date of June 2012, for those interested in subscriptions.

The first bit of this episodic poem :
It’s this thin envelope, empty, closed
gasping for air though your knuckles
are still flickering –what you hold

was never mailed, lets you rest
read the address over and over
just to move it further off

away from this boiling mountainside
ripping apart, flowing down your arm
with nothing left and cools –these days

you don’t lick the glue –in all directions
your mouth is her name, alone
coming back as ashes and snow.
