We here at Augury Books wish to celebrate the life of poet David Joel Friedman, who won the 2012 Augury Books Editors’ Prize with his poetry collection, Soldier Quick With Rain.

Sadly, David passed away earlier this week.

Below you’ll find a loving tribute from his friend and fellow poet Geoffrey Nutter, included here with his permission.

But first, here’s a short excerpt from David’s poem “Having Said That”:

“Having said that, let me say this. It is too soon to be a number-cruncher. It is too late to be a second-guesser. But it is right on time to be a hedgehog. Indeed the blue sky is a skein.”

With much respect & admiration, The Editors

Boredom-a Very Bad dream- ©2021js She was bored So tired of being bored She joined a motorcycle gang The application was hard “Write an essay on someone I killed” Gave her a thrill When she woke the Next day Ready for the test The proctor A tattoo in his hand Read “I killed my mom forgive me She’s dead. “ When you’re tired and bored She had to say yes The tattoo man Read what she said Girl you are mad but You passed the test Where’s your bike? “I took a train” He smiled and said You’re a liar or a Fed Told him to f**k off “I came “on my horse” So he poured her a scotch Went to her head Feeling her oats Said let’s get out of town “Not with a horse I’d rather be dead” She said wipe off that frown He pointed to his bike Get on he said He pushed that thing to 103 Then they went to a bar Sat on a stool He said “how do u feel” Said her ass still hurt Told him he was her hero Then he touched her breast When they rose to dance Saw the knife in his hand Then he said “Sorry dear, soon you will be dead” Turns out that’s the last thing He said She smiled Took the gun from her purse Blasted him twice in the head The cops didn’t come Maybe she did Then started for home And went to bed (Sing along if you want) It can be your song If you’re tired and bored Join a gang Learn what you can Then go to bed The end
You should never be closed for submissions. Look at the work of Fumihiro Matsuzaki, he goes by the name of matsubrooklyn on Instagram and he works as a picture framer at Pranayama art inc., in Brooklyn His work is stunning and accessible. If you actually look at his work on Instagram you'll know what I mean. It is perfect for a small handheld full color art book. They are to me the visual equivalent of Haiku. What comes to my mind as I look at the work is 'the sound of the brush'.
You should never be closed to submissions, look at the art of Fumihiro Matsuzaki who goes by the name matsubrooklyn on Instagram. He is a picture framer at Pranayama art Inc. He is as close to an untapped genius as I have ever seen. You publish him and you will never regret it.
Hello! My name is Jillian and I'm a social justice poet from Buffalo. Please take a moment to watch my poem #MaskOff. If you like it, feel free to share. Thank you!!
