RAMBLINGS EXTERNAL – Marcia Knight-Latter

Ramblings External by Marcia Knight-Latter externalises the unfiltered thought behind everyday experiences. The pamphlet explores space and time as the poet manipulates an internal narrative during regular activities by focusing predominantly on the distractions that come from within the thinking process, leading to more abstract connections. The reader receives an intentional delivery of information through careful formatting which allows for the extension of thought, to explore how a thought is visualised and heard. Marcia combines simple language with contextualised contractions and lyrical abstractions to produce intense imagery and a disjointed aesthetic.

Marcia Knight-Latter is a poet and writer, currently studying Creative Writing with Psychology at Kingston University.

Miscellaneous – Julia Rose Lewis


Miscellaneous
by Julia Rose Lewis is a poem about trying to work things out between the poet and Nantucket Island as their love is old and full of flaws.  This poem asks if it is possible to have a mutually healthy relationship between a human and an island.  It employs Dr Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham as a source text to explore the role of negation in this conversation.  The alternating 5-7 syllable counts of the lines suggest the wavering voice of the narrator or more simply the waves striking the island.

Julia Rose Lewis is the author of Phenomenology of the Feral (KFS 2017) and co-author with James Miller of Strays (HVTN 2017).  Miscellaneous is her fifth pamphlet after: Zeroing Event (Zarf 2016), Exhalation Halves Lambda (FLP 2017), How to Hypnotize a Lobster (2018), and Archeology and the Beast (Luminous Press 2018).
