  1. Lorca's "Ode to Walt Whitman"

    A great panoply of Pride, Federico García Lorca's Oda a Walt Whitman has never been properly translated into English. Here for the first time is the work in the spirit in which this tremendous Gay artist created it – a reclaiming of turf; a pronouncement that we have always been here, and are not going away; a celebration of our diversity. Coming from a man who was to be killed for his orientation 9 years after this poem's publication, nothing could be more impactful for the LGBT+ Community today.
    This poem celebrates Us through the auspices of not one great Gay poet, but two!

  3. Marty's Haiku

    I occasionally try my hand at writing haiku. I'm not claiming that any of it is really all that good. And some haiku purists might even claim that I don't always follow the rules of haiku correctly. Indeed some of my attempts could be more correctly classified as senryu, rather than haiku.

    Be all that as it may, I shall add my individual attempts over the next while. Some have been written many years ago. Others will be more recent.

    As the occasional offering may be somewhat dark in nature, I shall give the collection a rating of Mature. I will give individual chapter warnings where necessary

    1845. In the spring Redburn leaves Peru for New York on a warship. He has nothing, and feels like a failure. Worst of all is the loss he leaves behind him in the Pacific – his husband is dead, and Toby is lost and presumably long buried. What awaits him in the fall when he arrives back 'home,' to a place he has not been for four years? There he must consider what his brother wants for him, against how Redburn might honor the noblest sacrifices of the men who love him have made.
