Your Death Full of Flowers

Your Death Full of Flowers by Slippery Elm A bouquet of poems arranged and translated by Slippery Elm.

The thread that ties this bouquet together is that of the story of Blodeuwedd from the Mabinogion. A woman composed of flowers, who sought to kill her husband, and was thereby transformed into an owl. Just as the wizard Gwydion gathered blossoms of broom, meadowsweet, and trefoil, the editor gathers the poems to conjure something greater, a something that then goes on to wing the poetry out into the world. All poems appear in English and Spanish, and one in Arabic. The two languages form a dialectic in which meaning is generated in the space between them.

The Blue Spark by J.P. Kruse

The Blue Spark by J.P. Kruse The Blue Spark by J. P. Kruse is a hyper-actual philosophical essay on the effects of marketing and information technology, and a glimpse into the corrosions of reality as a result.

Tracing the process by which corporate interest uses technology to colonise our awareness, to brand and herd living dreams as quiescent cattle, to be fed as digital fast food to the online Ego, it attempts to decant, if only for just a moment, the reality of the Idea, and how to access this reality.
