John Deming reads from HEADLINE NEWS

I enjoyed HEADLINE NEWS the moment I opened it, a great find—actually it was given to me so I should say a great gift—an instantaneous read full of surprises and fun, each poem with a real headline, a fact, something concrete the poet can riff off into the abstract mingling of everyday thoughts and deeds that are not worthy of headlines perhaps, but worthy of meaning, our lives, seventy-two short poems of ten lines each, sometimes one word to a line and sometimes many, but each as jam-packed, succinct and in sync, something always going on. I’ve typed out one of the poems John reads in the Vimeo below. I really do love an infinity of cows. Enjoy.


all day today an infinity of cows
computing flat-
footed and grazing

MALIKI LEAVES WITH NO GUNS BLAZING

naked with back arched
your adjustments are amazing

I find this hotel off the highway
more scared than last night’s
you’re just as crazy
