LYRIKLINE

MARCUS SLEASE POETRY, Rides, Smashing Time

Happy to have my nomadic poetics with Lyrikline from various collections, including Rides (Blart Books) and Smashing Time (miPoesias). Translated into Polish and Danish.

These poems, while nomadic, and also surreal, are also influenced by NY School poetry. Folks such as Eileen Myles, Maureen Owen. Also punk music, like The Raincoats and Pussy Riot. Lots of train rides, also, all over the U.K. (part of my book Rides). And also, Ali Pali, the local big park when I lived in Wood Green, North London.

Thank you Adam Zdrodowski and Louise Rosengreen.

Amazing collection of poets in translation from all over the world:

NOMADIC TRAVEL WRITING

“Collector of tiny dreams by penlight and pursued by bears I want to spoon. I fall asleep inside you and then we get the wet wipes. Revolution the only solution or my audience of camel dung. My name is hush puppy and I live with my daddy in the bathtub.”
