About Current Poetry and Web Publishing

Of mine, I mean.  Most, perhaps all of what’s been published here is from a manuscript that was totally closed as of the late 80’s.  I am obviously what’s modernly termed obsessive-compulsive; I made changes after that…and most if not all simply got changed back.  The new stuff will be pulled for more than one reason.  One is the confusion (amply noted by Mike Masnick) of modern publishers of various sorts of media as to whether web publication counts re copyright and it only gets more involved after that.  Another is that historically, since about 1979 in fact, I have never allowed new poetry to see the light of day.  I might tell the story another day.


So.  If it says “current poetry” I actually intend to delete it in no more than a week.  In all probability my other current large blog is just going to have to go to friends-only, although I’m quite open about friends.  The reason is publishers and visibility–and the force of the law is in fact behind them.  Quite confusedly, to boot.  Whatever.
