Like most anthologies and journals, I only read my poems. My poem (page 761) was OK but I thought it could be better, so I rewrote it:

Owning the Nightprayer

Garblier than a cowlick, heartier than governance, more vacant than tipwoe. An entombed hark, a pinked hark, and unprobed hark of a muted voyage. Snare is no more bootied than therapy. Vacant meltfrown in a tingling horsewail, where tipthroe will ghost. Ghostlike a double. Deathlike a gift. There will be a frame, for splayed bangle. We will

It seems that I am one of the few poets in this journal who has more than one of their poems appear. Or is that true? I go by neither "Mike Nicoloff" nor "Michael Nicholoff," so perhaps I have been excluded entirely. Bummer.

favorite poem in 'the anth' to date:

A new poem by Mina Loy!



Like an english
Inducing harm
Of recognition
Exclaiming ill-will
Our pensive attention
Of emphasis
Like a native bank
A startled wit
Our tropical despair
Like a glorious quickening
Dead and live
Muttering
Like a material speech
In drowsiness
In drowsiness
A side
Like an English
Of fellowship
An English of Side
More english than an english
More english than an english
More english than a side
More english than an english
More english than an english

I enjoyed this prank a lot. I see that a lot of people are disappointed with the quality of the "work", but I think the medium is the message with ISSUE ONE. I don't think the poems are supposed to be any good. The size of ISSUE ONE seems to suggest that it is not really meant to be read entirely, but just enough for someone to find their name attached to an obviously computer generated poem and then react. Seems to have worked.

I didn't like it because "my" poem sucked.

However, kudos to those kids in Philly and New Jersey, they are marketing geniuses. All the poetic-philosophical vomiting going on about it is ha-ha funny.

It was a marketing ploy, people.

Awesome prank! "Marketing ploy" misses the point, I think. So does "intervention" into anything. Seems like a funny smart prank to me, and isn't that something. More funny smart pranks!

I don't even like my own poem. I must've been drunk when I wrote it because I don't understand it.
