Magic is wrung from the dust in Dave Roskos' razz-flown, beat up, cracked hallalujah Skeltonics. In stripped down epistles of lyric loss and love, these poems nail down some shadow pain and outlaw glory.
Searing portraits of the strugglers. Out of luck junkies, spacey inmates, and hapless hustlers. Mystic connections to a way-troubled dad. Dave is a resident Saint of the Underground. He puts patches on the soul.

GHOST POWDER

A few clouds scallop the sky like pale fish
over the river. The carousel on Pier 25
closes for the season. I waste my days
courting puppets and chasing women.
October turns out its empty pockets,
squeezing the last glow from the evening.

The nation teeters on spindly hind legs.
I almost lose it in the Bureau of Frustration.
Baz and I swap jail stories at Howl!
The pigeon lady quivers under feathers
at Union Square. Katherine Bradford
paints a pirate ship in my imagination.

Another friend had a stroke.
The frogs have a motto: “Born to croak.”

Poet Adrian Matejka used to be a DJ — and when he got stuck in pandemic-induced misery, it was music that lifted him up and helped him finish writing his latest book, Somebody Else Sold the World.

Thanks Steve Luttrell! We miss you Michael! Coming in Issue #18.

A Flea
( for Michael McClure )

When your book arrived,
I feasted on
your last words.
With an undiminished
appetite for
Meat- Spirit memories
and Black- Velvet dreams.

I seemed to hear your voice
coming through
( in beast - language ).
Braying from beyond
and as they say
in song - lyric ,
“ Ain’t That A Kick In The Head”.

Back in October 2019, I posted a call for submissions. Nothing could have prepared me for the abundance of great poets. Over the subsequent months, I became humbled by their literary prowess. Today, with pride, I present to you Lyrics of Mature Hearts, a book that celebrates older adults during a time when our generations are succumbing to a ravaging illness.
