Thomas L. Vaultonburg's insight:
It's early voting day here in Illinois. It's after midnight and I'm not nearly done with my day. I have yoga left and I'm waiting for the fantasy football waiver wire to come through and then I'll shower and get ready for bed. Later today I'll vote for Hillary Clinton. Earlier in the week I tried to organize all the poetry I had written since my last book, Submerged Structure, which I finished writing over ten years ago. I had to go through old computers and blogs to track down all the poems, and I'm sure I missed a few, but here are a couple I don't believe I have published anywhere on the internet.

Donal Mahoney Misses Old Style Beer

Donal Mahoney Misses Old Style Beer | Outsider Poetry | Scoop.it
Donal Mahoney misses Old Style beer
Thomas L. Vaultonburg's insight:
Donal Mahoney recently read the Outsider editor interviewed in Duotrope and found the invitation to poets to submit who suffer mental illness or disability. But since these ailments come in many forms, some detectable and others not so at least in public, it’s difficult for a writer who has made it through a long life knowing he isn’t quite right to submit to Outsider because he has not been labeled as officially labeled, medically or otherwise. Maybe that’s because he quit drinking four quarts of beer on Friday night, often the same amount on Saturday night, and lightened up with 10 or so vodka and Squirts on Sunday afternoon. He quit drinking and smoking three packs a day on the same day. The date is tattooed on his brain: November 23, 1961. He still misses Old Style beer. Mahoney has appeared in Outsider before and very much enjoyed it so he is no submitting once again, officially labeled or not. He wants to say, however, that his problem, whatever it is, has been relieved enormously by the process of writing, sometimes in three or more shifts of three hours a day, seven days a week. On nights he can’t sleep, he’s a woodpecker at the keyboard as early as 3 a.m. It’s one of only two obsessions in a lifetime of obsessions that would not attract the cops or make women angry. Sometimes thinks his poems should scream what he feels but he doesn’t like those versions. He’s not Bukowski and he knows it. Some of Mahoney’s relatively newer work can be found at http://eyeonlifemag.com/the-poetry-locksmith/donal-mahoney-poet.html#sthash.OSYzpgmQ.dpbs=. Some older work is at http://booksonblog12.blogspot.com. Some of the poems on the latter site may have been written before he quit drinking with or without a bottle of Old Style. No computers then. Just a rickety Remington portable typewriter.

Rockford Poet Releases Book of Outlaw Poetry

Rockford Poet Releases Book of Outlaw Poetry | Outsider Poetry | Scoop.it
Rockford, IL – Zombie Logic Press is proud to announce the release of the third book in its Rock River Literary Series, “The Blood Dark Sea,” by Rockford poet Dennis Gulling. Dennis Gulling is a protege of Todd Moore, who taught English at Belvidere High School for many years, and is credited as the founder of the Outlaw Poetry movement. Gulling is himself a distinguished, although elusive poet with a thirty-five year history of publication, and was also the editor of Crawlspace magazine from 1980-1989 This one hundred page testimonial of the underbelly of American society is delivered like a gut punch, and finishes with a flourish of wry humor quick as a prison shivving. It is his first full-length collection of poetry. The Blood Dark Sea is a 35 year collection of poems about small timers finding themselves in bad places at the wrong time. Their misfortune is definitely the reader's gain, as the German concept of schadenfreude is raised to an art form by this poet and his keen observation detailing the worst moments in others lives. Gulling delivers his poems like short, unexpected bursts of gunfire in an idyllic suburban afternoon. The Blood Dark Sea is the third book in the Rock River Literary Series, an effort by editor Thomas L. Vaultonburg of Zombie Logic Press to promote Rockford writers, and expose them to a national audience. Two books a year are planned in the series, with the two previous books being Iced Cream by Jesus Abraham Correa VII and The Zen of Beard trimming by C.J. Campbell. The books are available locally at Phoenix Traders, and online at www.zombielogicpress.com. A book release party will be forthcoming in May at J.R. Kortman Gallery. Local authors may also contact Mr. Vaultonburg in regards to submitting their works for the Rock River Literary Series. Contact: Thomas L. Vaultonburg vaultonburg@gmail.com 815-231-6212
