Cutthroat – A Journal of the Arts

Cutthroat's 10th Anniversary Edition

Cutthroat’s 10th Anniversary Edition is one of the most wondrous and beautiful things that came home from Minnesota with me last week. It’s a special tribute issue to Joy Harjo and Linda Hogan and contains a terrific review by Doug Anderson of ‘I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast.’ Many, many thanks to Doug, to Pam Uschuk and William Pitt Root, and to all the other editors and contributors who made this issue happen.

Encounter

Photo of Klaus J. Gerken
i waited at the corner
for a vocal argument
you came but did not speak to me
i questioned your intent

you shrugged and did not bother
to light your cigarette
a movie made to order
in the fog no one regrets

the hollow streets so echoed
like tapping stones together
our silence was forgotten
as we melted on the bed

the morning came securely
you left i left what’s left?

A pleasant surprise. Searching for something else (isn’t that always the case?) I found these manuscripts and chapbooks of mine:

The Waterfalls of the Broken Sky 1966 (Poem on a page torn out of a notebook)
The Jupiter Connection 1966 (My first Novel — long thought lost — wrote it as a school assignment when they wanted me to write a short story over the weekend. I got D- for that. Teacher said the novel was great but the D- was for not writing a short story)
Poem Speaking to Kenneth Koch 1971 (Chapbook)
Torture and Affliction 1971 (Chapbook)
Ich Bin Deutsch 1972 (Poem published in Germany somewhere)
Whiskey Poem 1972 (Chapbook)
Ygdrasail Vol 1. No 1. Spring 1973 (First print issue 50 copies — only the typed mss left)
The Last Party 1974 (Short Story)
This Novel… 1974 (Short Story)
Four Sixty Second Plays 1975 (Chapbook)
The Last Joy by Emmy Hemmings 1931 (Translation 1981)
