Lexicon Devils

A sestina that uses “Mina Loy” as one of its end-words will certainly intrigue me. So when Stephen Burt discusses its first stanza in the essay I mentioned in my last entry, I just have to go on Google to find the rest of Joanna Fuhrman’s “Stable-Self Blues.” That led me to The Germ, which also contains the following germs gems:

  1. “Means of Entry” by Joanna Fuhrman
  2. “Stairway to Heaven (1946)” by Brandon Downing
  3. “The Spy Game” by James Tate
  4. “The Intrigues” by Ange Mlinko
  5. “Mock On, Mock On, Jakobson, Lacan” by Chris Stroffolino

This is just a sample of works. There are many more online, and each of the above poets has more than one piece.
