Chimaera July 2011

I have a poem up at Chimaera, called Surface Tension.  The poetry theme for this issue of the journal is Life, the Universe and Everything, which is a quote from Douglas Adams’, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe. Have a look at the whole issue, there are some wonderful poems and a feature spotlighting Australian poet Les Murray, which includes this verse from his poem, Rock Music:

Sex is a Nazi. The students all knew
this at your school. To it, everyone’s subhuman
for parts of their lives. Some are all their lives.
You’ll be one of those if these things worry you.

    Wonderful poem, Risa. Although I could never say it so eloquently, it captures much of what I feel, even as I don’t understand it.
