In November 2010 I published the second issue of :: the mouth :: the anomalous :: tales from the other world. It is my favourite of the TMTA zines so far. The text is made up of three connected poems – The Assault on Procyon VII parts 1, 2 and 3 – that depict an interstellar voyage, a disastrous landing on an icy wind swept planet, a time paradox and creatures with multiple appendages. It works best read out loud. I will endeavour to put up an audio file of the entire work sometime soon.
The three parts were written and read at three successive gatherings of the Traverse Poetry slam in Canberra, of June, July and August 2010.
