Yes, Three Candles is a good journal. I discovered it when I was tracking down a lot of John Sweet's poetry. Haven't heard of the second journal so thanks for passing that on.

hey, yeah. No Tell Motel...

i like the approach. a bit of a broadside, a bit of a verse daily thing. although to be honest, i think i've liked the No Tell Motel selections lately a hell of a lot more than what verse daily has been offering up. 'ick' has been my usual reaction.

on Covey: i thought the airplane poem was great. it might not be linear (is it linear?) but at least it doesn't totally eschew narrative like the "Reveal" poems do. lol, and i guess i'm revealing something about my aesthetics right there. i liked Nay, Orpheus perhaps most of all. it takes up some nice strands from the past and does something interesting with them. something other than jettisoning, other than (fully) appropriating. a rich piece.
interesting too there's also a 'flush' in that one. i wonder if he's trying to tell us something about our toilets...

ps some great stuff in the archives also. this is one site i'm paying attention to.

Thanks everyone. Submit something to Three Candles or No Tell and let me know what they accept, I will crosslink back to a review of it down the road.
