Electronic Corpse is alive… alive!

I'm happy to have contributed a few lines to this inventive new anthology edited by the brilliant M. Ayodele Heath. For the last several years, he's been engaging poets on Facebook to create exquisite corpse poems by offering up form and first lines. Ayodele has collected those creations into Electronic Corpse: Poems From A Digital Salon.

This anthology features collaboratively created poems by 84 contributors of all experiences and geographies – from state poets laureates to casual journalers; from Pennsylvania to Georgia to South Korea, India and South Africa. The anthology has three sections: collaborative poems, poems from the most frequent contributors and a step-by-step guide for the reader. What sounds like a very straight-forward book of poetry is a complex, unique and layered book.

The Atlanta launch is now confirmed for Saturday, May 3, at 4:15 p.m. at {Poem 88} in West Midtown. I'll be reading with Jon Goode, C.G. Brown, Dan Veach, Robert E. Wood, Rupert Fike, Sharan Strange, Theresa Davis, Teri Elam, Christina Springer and more. You can RSVP at the Facebook invite at this link.
