Shattered Wig 28 Sneak Preview #4 - "Deca" by Jamie Gaughan-Perez


Would a salve for the weight on your shoulders just leave you a wetter weight?

This is against that and that, too.

Some treatments call for repeated application. Some problems ask for continuous pressure.

Some states are contiguous.

Some continents are lazier (than others), like rivers and dogs familiar with foxes.

And some foxes fly, and they are bats, too.

Spiders are good for houses.

Landscape paintings are good for houses, less so for landscapes.

And landscape printing is your best bet for spreadsheets and sitemaps.

Are you following? I'm the one in the pool. Look at me.


Jamie Gaughran-Perez is a co-director of Narrow House, a Baltimore-based small press and literary arts organization. He's also a creative strategist for Threespot in D.C., and plays bass in Sweatpants (the band, not the clothing).

Editor's Note: But don't let Jamie fool you, he can rock a set of velour sweatpants like James Franco can rock a mohair sweater.

For those following along on their Dr. Strange decoder rings, it is now looking like Shattered Wig Review #28 will arrive shortly before the pilgrims in November. This here Gaughan-Perez poem will be in it along with some dynamite new Austin, Texas work by Al Ackerman, Michael Kimball, Justin Sirois, Amanda Pollock, ethnomusicologist Ian Nagoski, artist Roy Green and much much more.
