and wilt in
your complexity
not caring if I am consumed.

lies, when
with matters of sex,
in dawdles of fibrillation

A reply to Harold Bloom from Doris Lessing

lost his head.
It rolled to the curb
mouthing guttersnipe gibberish
and imploded into a black hole, sweeping up trash.

this is a long fibonacci: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13
from me to you readers of fine literature. Doris is a blessing. I salute her!

Published writers read from their works
Beebe Barksdale-Bruner has an MFA in poetry from Queens University of Charlotte. Her book of poetry, It Comes to Me Loosely Woven, from Press 53, is her first full-length collection. The book contains a range of poetic expression from free verse to Fibonacci, in which poems are restructured in a mathematical pattern known as the Fibonacci sequence--a form growing in popularity. George Singleton’s new novel, Work Shirts for Madmen, is forthcoming this fall from Harcourt. A resident of Dacusville, he teaches writing at the SC Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities in Greenville. His short stories appear regularly in national magazines--The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, Zoetrope, and Playboy--and literary journals--The Southern Review, Shenandoah, The Georgia Review and many others. He is the author of the collections These People Are Us, The Half-Mammals of Dixie, and Why Dogs Chase Cars and the novel, Novel (Harcourt, 2005).
