If you have read any of the other HST Quarterlies you have an idea of what to expect, a mix of cynical, dirty and heartfelt poetry This may be the dirtiest so far, but is not without it s deeper pieces My favorites of the bunch Art by Ben John SmithDumb, Poor and Benign by Michael MarrottiStepdad by Scott EmersonTalking to Myself in Public by James D Casey IVWhat a Day by Johnny ScarlottiA Close Escape by Harry WhitewolfWhen the Dick Died Inside by Rebecca GrandsenA Burned Past by Craig Moffatt
Putting to one side that my own humble offering has been included in this edition, and that there needs to be horror, I felt that this was the best issue of HST Quarterly I ve read.Absolute favourites of this collection were one of those shits by Michael D Goscinski it d been a while since i had to shit like that it was one of those cheek squeezers where you try to hold it together running for the bathroom hoping you don t let loose and Imagining Something In Her Mouth by David Mac I ve had all [...]
Rating for the poets that are far talented than I am I like to read poetry a couple of times before I feel like I m done and I read this over and over and enjoyed it every time.
Wow it s been a year of these publications already I ve enjoyed this one, only problem is either I m getting desensitized to the violence or things are getting sensible Great to see the regulars posting Arthur Graham, Ben John Smith, A Blumer and Johnny The Great Scarlotti Was also good to see some newcomers that I ve heard off JA QMC Carter Winward, Rebecca Gransden and Harry Whitewolf.In stockings it seems If I had to pick a favourite it would have to be a poet, unknown to me, Scott Emerson H [...]
Great issue featuring some incredible talent Proud to be a part of it among so many other awesome writers.
I think I laughed throughout this quarterly than any of the others Maybe HST isn t particularly meant for invoking humor but I think it also matters how sick and twisted you are I felt like the work in here followed the HST theme rather well, actually If we go by the definition of things which create aversion, like having a dead body for a boyfriend or filleting a human carcass to fuck and die inside I would say horror was represented along with Sleaze and Trash Two poems that stuck me, by thei [...]
Arthur Graham does an excellent job of fooling you You might think you re getting horror, sleaze, and trash, but he throws in some damn fine, goddamned good shit in there, too No, it won t make your MFA brother in law quiver with lambent illumination in his decorous dulled chinos, but for those of us seeking the real world in our art, rather than forcing a fake one into it, it nudges you right where it counts I ll let you decide where that is for yourself.
Anniversary edition Well done
Features my poem Stepdad.
Made for a highly entertaining flight back from Glasgow For 24 pages, I didn t think about dying in a horrible crash and that s saying something
As always, a great collection.
Sometimes poetry should chafe a little bit Leave you a little sticky, and wishing that public bathroom had had running water or soap Schedule that doc appointment now before the itching starts
A very entertaining unholy bible of rawness and sleaze Looking forward to read the autumn edition
