You Will Want Like Cowboys

I will want like splinters,
astonished spit, also like alphabets and minnows.

You will want at smallness,
also squirreling across the wire.

Wantings in the wilderness!
What did you think,

words?
You’ve seen it all before.

That’s my last duchess—
all I want I’ve learned from her.

I want all I’ve learned from her.
Like Goya and church

you will fever like derangement.
You will lick no less

the ecstatic, and you will grow no more
accustomed to this dirty purse

than I to breathlessness
or pavement.

There is Kansas in the wilderness.
There is not cloudy.

All day the fingering, there your gaze,
there I will saddle up

the pillow, buckle, bobbin, tongue
I wanted from.

DANA WARD READS APRIL 10 AT THE FRICK FINE ARTS AUDITORIUM, ALONG WITH ANNE BOYER.

As many Futurepost readers out there already know, the illustrious Dana Ward has been hard at work on his second volume, The Crisis of Infinite Worlds, which Futurepoem is proudly thrilled to put out in late fall of this year.  Here’s an excerpt for all you Wardophiles, happily proffered in the spirit of community and collaboration that distinguishes Thom Donovan’s own book, The Hole.

And continuing in that spirit, we hope you’ll consider supporting Futurepoem through our Kickstarter campaign. We have raised $1,540 virtual dollars, but won’t receive an actual cent of it until we raise $2,160 more. Don’t forget, all fiscal contributors become future contributors to a poem of Dana’s! Only nine days left! Click on the link on the right for more info.

For Thom Donovan

I go out in the dark & come back in the light. January 3rd 2012. The first real deep freeze…

New Podcast: Walter Mosley. (click for a podcast from Mosley)

Bestselling author Walter Mosley burst onto the literary scene in 1990 with his first Easy Rawlins mystery, Devil in a Blue Dress. His latest, Little Green, the 12th book in the Easy Rawlins series, is an engrossing and atmospheric mystery. Mosley brings his signature grit and panache to this tough-minded exploration of good and evil and the power of guilt and redemption.

Walter Mosley has written over forty books. He is the recipient of the Anisfield Wolf Award, NAACP Image Award, the “Risktaker Award” given by Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute and a Grammy. Mosley presently serves on the boards of The Nation and TransAfrica. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he now lives in New York City.

“Mosley returns here to doing what he does best: setting the pain and pleasure of individual lives, lived mostly in L.A.’s black community, within an instantly recognizable historical moment and allowing the two to feed off one another…. [A] major event for crime-fiction fans.” —Bill Ott, Booklist

MOSLEY READS FEB. 6 AT THE FRICK FINE ARTS AUDITORIUM.
