>3 Poems of Irreverence in DANSE MACABRE

>Nevada’s first online literary magazine DANSE MACABRE is a cool watering hole (that’s a redundant expression, right?) to quench your reading thirst. Diverse writers, sparkling writing and embedded music … so what else! Editor Adam Henry Carriere, a poet himself, shows how literature and music joins “the South Side of Chicago to Italy’s Adriatic Coast, Southern California to Beijing’s Arts District; from across the great state of Nevada to Great Britain, Mexico’s Pacific Coast, and incredible India;…”

I am so darn pleased to be a part of the zine for the May issue “Danse Macabre XXIII — une nuit à l’opéra”.

Read my 3 Poems of Irreverence (…It’s Showtime Now; …Writing Vaudeville; …A Few Things of Consideration )

Check out the embedded music at:

Bonsoir !
Guten Abend!
Добрый вечер!
Buona sera!

and

une nuit à l’opéra

I know you will go and read but in any case, here’s one of the “3 poems of irreverence”:

…It’s Showtime Now

You mustn’t worry whether the weather
Is fine or muggy in our cities these days
We’ll be inside the box, special seats
The Stateroom all to ourselves, we can
Sing in abandon in Jacques Brel‘s voice
No wonder I hear people discuss Le Gaz
And this all when we can all have fun in a
Bunch, say yay to Hercule Yakko while
Crowding above our pothole of jibes and
Cramming into neighbors’ shoes spilling
Ammonia with love, only love, but wait!
Will someone say we wanted to spoil the
Fun? No, not when we sing and chant: Take
Me Out To The Ballgame! The rest will
Follow your imagination, call it chaos or
Disdain, it’s never too crowded to catch a sham.

    >Well, wonderful Nabina, we’re pretty darn happy you came our way. I think your poetry sings (and yes, for me there’s little boundary between poetry and music music…unabashedly I list Mozart as one of my favorite poets in my bios), the kind of art that makes DM what you so very generously remark upon :-D
