Paroling the langue from its prison, Abraham Adams embodies the cut-up in these 6 performances of poetic spiritualism and prophetic chance. As much I Ching as it is Burroughs, Adams adds to the procedural lexicon of creative reading, delivering the retina to process while returning the genie to the lamp of syntax.
Abraham Adams is an editor from Vermont residing in New York City. His installation with Karin Schneider, "Homage to Michael Asher," will open at Galerie Barbara Weiss in Berlin in August 2014.

Fire Island by Guillermo Rebollo-Gil PDF
Please download and print! All books from The New Heave-Ho are free, but you may give what you like, if you like:
Very pleased to release Fire Island by Guillermo Rebollo-Gil, a Puerto-Rican poet who writes in both Spanish and English. These poems are future-queer: full of the putty of 21st century pop culture pounded onto the outlander funny pages of colonialist America, then peeled back to reveal a mirror in which we seldom look:
all them fancy things
the people of Puerto Rico, well, let me not say the people,
Puerto Rican poets, they're not really a class,
a couple of writers, readers of poetry,
friends of mine, in Puerto Rico, like to point out
when discussing THE AMERICAN POETS
that William Carlos Williams' mother
was Puerto Rican, it sounds extravagant,
like I just put down onomatopoeia on the scrabble board
and lost, mostly because Williams was a medical doctor by trade,
and good Puerto Rican families should have doctors in the family,
preferably with AMERICAN SOUNDING names,
anyhow, if I ever get a chicken i'm gonna call it Carlos,
long for “Los,” as an homage to one of the original
MTV Road Rules cast members.
Guillermo Rebollo-Gil (San Juan, 1979) is the author of the poetry books Flores nacidas de la astucia and Sobre la destrucción, among others. He teaches sociology and creative writing in Puerto Rico. His poems have appeared in Mandorla, Retort Magazine, Counterpunch, Diálogo Journal, and Fence, among others. Check out his blog, Empty Lots: patternofthething.blogspot.com

"As far as the future from here, I have high hopes for .PDF publishing. For someone like me out here in the gulag, the internet provides access in a way that allows me to rejoin the conversation I left for all those years. And .PDF publishing has essentially the same economics of a late-90s chapbook press: None. It’s a disease and a vow, publishing—a monasticism of the obscene; “literary meningitis.” My new .PDF press is called The New Heave-Ho, and I haven’t had much time to devote to it, but I plan to release 5 or 6 new books in May by Erin Morrill, Nico Alvarado, Guillermo Rebollo-Gil, Mara Pastor, Julio Zambrano (an AWOL E Bay poet from the late-90s), and several others if I can get them together.
