About Us

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.

Fascinated by Art Nouveau she looks for the fresh, new, considered work, poetry that "bangs in the dance", the kind of writing that keeps the Reader alive on long, dark winter nights.
