Makes me wonder: What is the role of the poet in society or elsewhere? I really don’t have an answer to that question, I haven’t thought about it nearly at all. And I’m going to have to, if I want to monetize the career path in any mean. I mean to say, is it about something for yourself, or something for others? A mix? Fixing? Other things?
It’s hugely complicated and I’ll try to write an essay on it at some point, if just to (among other things) prove to myself that I can still write essays. =/
We’ll see. We’ll see how this all pans out. It’s so chaotic and worrisome I really have no idea what to expect. I hope you all survive the lens flare among other demons who partake in our juicing.
While Trespassing I Note the Sadness of Old Fences I write poems when I can, in late morning or during the afternoon, between chores but before dinner.

Well in any case. There ya have it!
Oh yeah, it’s on Kindle only. It should be available on the Barnes Nook soonish.
PS: Yeah I looked it up, the Preview feature should be available soonish. It’s automatic but takes a few business days. Business days because we’re in business, baby.
I don’t remember if I announced this yet or not, but [AR] #2 is out! Yay! You can find it in the top post on our Patreon site at Patreon.com/alternate_route. You don’t have to pay, it’s free, though we appreciate donations. But yeah read at your own leisure, we like to think we have quality work, a little light on the visual arts side this quarter, but that’s alright, right?
Contributors are listed on the inside cover, but thank you shoutouts to CJ Delous, Elancharan Gunsakeran, and Afzal Sajjad Zafir, and Michael Starr for the wonderful poems! =)
