The Masthead:

"the last station"

by Rebecca Anne Banks

"I loved you in the morning

Our kisses deep and warm"

- from Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye by Leonard Cohen

"your hair all soft and long

a sleepy morning storm . . ."

"sunshine light

through coloured glass

the afternoon . . .

orange and orange

the stone butterflies


the Nanticote

the Alleghyne cross


coco dime

noon day glows

the Carlisle numbers

Olio, Olio

and good lightsburgh

(capitol brothers

factory loans)

zin Ziggy

su macha


the tunnel


the sleep


the night

I hear the siege of Montreal

in the rain

no fireworks

in my window

the night

peels back

my fingernails







the haunt by hour)





and somewhere



waters rise up to

streetcar windows

and I say

could be coming

could be going

could be . . .

the afternoon

dreams dark

of black and brown

the last taste of London fog

wild flowers

(the daisy

a new beginning

a new season)

the last drop of 30 below

the unwritten lives

is it easy

to fall in love?

"your hair all soft and long

a sleepy morning storm . . ."

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.

The New Age Renaissance Republique Creation Policy: It is the intent of this Poetry Editor/Artist that all content of Subterranean Blue Poetry and its publications, is based solely in artistic license. The new original offerings, with new original words, new original syntax, new original language usage are new original creations in Art Nouveau with no intent or purpose past the freedom of creative license, in the Spirit of the New Age.

Subterranean Blue Poetry is a New Age Internet Poetry and Art Publishing Café. We are currently accepting New Age Poetry and Art @ Submissions. Please send me your Books of Poetry and I will write a Book Review. We thrive on new original word synergies. All Poets and their poetry are welcome and we are especially looking for homegrown Poets from the Canadian/American Indian Community, Quebec, small town Canada, International Poets and anyone who was ever considered "the other”. New Age Art offerings are for the masthead of each issue.

We pay Poets and Artists $10 per poem, $20 per Article of Poetic Interest, and $20 per Masthead Art/Photo. Renumeration is paid in the month of publication. In an Online Arts Economy it is important that Poets/Writers/Artists are paid for their time, work and talent. We are introducing an optional Pay-What-You-Can Reading Fee ($1 per Poem up to 5 Poems per Poetry Submission). Any Poet who sends a donation with their Submission will receive a yay or nay, usually within 3 months. If you do not send a donation with your Submission you will only hear from Subterranean Blue Poetry if we give an offer of publication.
