"for those subterranean blues"

The Masthead:

"street cathedral"

by Rebecca Anne Banks



rain sky afternoon

walking and

walking . . ."

and something in September dawn

(I look for you

blue . . .

sky crow fly)

Napolean bream

the byzantines

they walk among us

(west Hildegaard numbers are in town)

in season

a new blue mattress

in season

I look for you . . .

of the street cathedral

"aider, aider"

a coffee in Madrid



a conscription of oasis

love of the everlasting Saint

a good capital

after a catholic Friday

"no grocery carts" at the vintage store

found luck

punk on film

and gin ricky girl

on tv

did they make you sleep with strangers?

(whispers of repentance)

la couloir du Plateau ce n'est pas chante


the haunted gallery space

"the little dancer"

a face in sunlight

the silence


the haunted gallery space

walking and walking


the silence

I look for you

a little rain

(the ghost of Montreal

(whispers of repentance)

fish and coin

fish and coin

a coin in the mouth of a fish)

a long line

by the deli

feast or famine


by the boulevard

and who by numbers

sur la rue

i leave

a dollar for food for the dog

to jant on it

"5th Avenue heartache"

the Commissar

(i thought the stereo was gone)

and September trains

sous sol

i look into her face

of lost and missing lovers

the picture of blue

the Plateau corridor does not sing.

(from (for heaven's garden)

dreams of Calvados 1969)

walking and walking

I look for you . . .

as the cold

washes the streets,

a little rain"

Subterranean Blue Poetry Presents!

The New Age Renaissance Republic White Flag Manifesto

"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- from The New Colossus
(inscribed on the Statue of Liberty)
by Emma Lazarus

We the people of Subterranean Blue Poetry announce . . . we are the democracy of poetry, a true meritocracy for the best reads of the New Age Renaissance Republic. That whosoever enter these walls shall be forever celebrated. Give us your poor, your downtrodden, those of heavy hearts, your brilliant Poets and Artists and we shall publish them.
