I don’t want to be a time travel snob, but if I’d curated this compendium I’d probably have included at least one author from the future.

THE FEBRUARYIST by Peter Money
It comes to a nest made
of books. A figure & a syllable,
a cat above the head, an orange
tinge of clothing, water in the shoes
waiting almost impatiently outside
the theater, the “Bright Star” fallen
or gone to another city, red plaid
hunter who does not fight but gathers
keeps a nasty mouth & piles on standby,
of passionate insistence through moth holes
in the eyes of dollars, the same cloth worn yet a good life
better than many and most, still on the down-low
some things that can’t be believed, believed.
We are breathing in the same cosmos in the same epoch
an antiquarian’s garden strewn in the compost of hip-
hop and only a finite sleep, cookies and popcorn
we pack groceries on top of two calendars
and ring our flesh on the progress of progeny
we had bought, after bread, broke on a table
to the tide of what turned us on,
salt lick by wave spray, a bounty of chaotic fullness
we can’t measure by efficiencies but by vast and direct
achievements of little, the economy of gifts
agreed, enjoyed, a four wheel circus of textures
we read before collapsing.

THE FEBRUARYIST by Peter Money

It comes to a nest made

of books. A figure & a syllable,

a cat above the head, an orange

tinge of clothing, water in the shoes

waiting almost impatiently outside

the theater, the “Bright Star” fallen

or gone to another city, red plaid

hunter who does not fight but gathers

keeps a nasty mouth & piles on standby,

of passionate insistence through moth holes

in the eyes of dollars, the same cloth worn yet a good life

better than many and most, still on the down-low

some things that can’t be believed, believed.

We are breathing in the same cosmos in the same epoch

an antiquarian’s garden strewn in the compost of hip-

hop and only a finite sleep, cookies and popcorn

we pack groceries on top of two calendars

and ring our flesh on the progress of progeny

we had bought, after bread, broke on a table

to the tide of what turned us on,

salt lick by wave spray, a bounty of chaotic fullness

we can’t measure by efficiencies but by vast and direct

achievements of little, the economy of gifts

agreed, enjoyed, a four wheel circus of textures

we read before collapsing.

Does anybody else see this book and immediately start hearing the Mortal Kombat music and imagining what the combatant’s respective Fatalities would be? (MFA finishes you with ambiguous endings and dramatic irony, NYC with high rents and alcoholism.)

CREATIVE NONFICTION, "The Human Face of Sustainability" issue. Original, dramatic essays that communicate the challenges inherent to the complicated and vital issue of sustainability. "Moms, scientists, farmers, and others who are trying to change the world…” Colleagues at McJack have always revered Creative Nonfiction, and it is issues like this that really justify that adoration. Hurrah.

It is not solely because ARTFORUM is, still, after all these years, the most excellent of art journals in publication that I include it here (yes, new jacks, I said it). Or that it is one of those art world weeks here in New York City, with the opening of the Whitney Biennial, the Armory show and, count ‘em, twelve major art fairs citywide, that just bleeds art, art, art. But mainly, because, well , there’s two small pieces on Lars Von Trier’s NYMPHOMANIAC, which opens later this month, and is, well, like anything from Lars, but especially so with this one, eagerly, eagerly awaited.
