Wulf Losee feaures 10/3/2016

Always Free, Always with Open Mic before and after feature.
10/3    Wulf Losee   hosted by Jan

Wulf Losee lives and works in the Bay Area. His poems and short stories have appeared in journals such as Crack the Spine, Forge, FRiGG, Full Moon, The New Guard, The North Coast Literary Review, Oak Square, OxMag, Pennsylvania English, Poetalk Magazine, Westview, Rio Grande Review, and SLAB.
Wulf believes that language is humanity's oldest art, and should be honored for what it is—whether it be a child's first nonsense rhyme or songs sung by hunter-gatherers around camp fires—whether it be the verse of Milton or Big Daddy Kane. For Wulf, open mics are the camp fires where the hunter-gatherers of language celebrate their hunt. Most of our words disappear into nothing, but sometimes they stay with us forever.

                   EPISTEMOLOGY #6

                   under the Brugmansia
                   the sorcery of angel trumpets
                   descends in waterfalls

                   I sit, writing longhand
                   in the patio’s thickening yellow
                   while an empire of porch lights

                   enslaves the pollinating moths
