ABOUT S(tars) & M(agnets)

S(tars) & M(agnets) is an experimental ‘book-of-poems’ composed entirely on a 1959 Olympia SF travel typewriter and ranging in themes from the mystical to the sensual. The title is a nod to the ee cummings collection Tulips and Chimneys. Where Tulips and Chimneys was a sexual innuendo for male and female genitalia, S(tars) & M(agnets) is a reference to the sexual play of Sado-Masochism. On top of the poetry of ee cummings, S(tars) & M(agnets) is inspired by the works of Grant Morrison, Rob Brezsny, Pablo Neruda, and Denise Levertov.  

Poems from S(tars) & M(agnets) have been featured in the following literary magazines:

“Salvation” in Issue 4 of The Bellville Park Pages 
“Chaos” & “I Am A Shaman” in Beyond Borderlands
“The Carousel at Midnight” in Volume 1: February 2014 of Bitterzoet Magazine
“Moon, Stars, and Grass” in Issue 108 of Crack the Spine
“Paris” & “Untouchable” in Issue 7 of The Jet Fuel Review
