Monica Kim

time at a cross-section

“time at a cross-section” features erasure poems of The New York Times articles from the 1910s-1960s, and erases, inserts, and blacks out words to reimagine narratives that aren’t misogynistic and transphobic. Some poems address gender identity and expression, while others contend with the pressures women face in literature; still others tackle the intersectionality of gender and race to comment on modern-day issues while appropriating older language.

Monica Kim is a social justice advocate and aspiring writer. Born in Seoul, South Korea, she has lived in New Jersey for most of her life. Her writing has been published in The Mantle, Okay Donkey, Thimble Magazine, Stirring, and The Michigan Quarterly Review Online.

John Morgan

I am here at home in Bow Street, a village two miles from the west coast of Wales. As a visual poet, the call for Nest came as rapidly as the collapse of my design programmes caused by updating computer operating systems to cope with the communication needs of lockdown. “here” visualises the surrounding landscape and sudden silence through a face to face encounter with a badger, whose eyes I’d like to think trace the events of centuries past; an experience I can never hope to share in a world we are struggling and failing to understand. You can find plenty of other visual poems on my website to keep you busy in lockdown:

John Morgan

“Take the Witches’ Path out” is a kind of memento mori infused poem, that shares coincidental geometries and spatialisation – and its own dark obsessions (chromatically subverted) – with the third painting in Damian Hirst’s triptych “The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth” (2008), from his No Love Lost: Blue Paintings collection (2009). Hirst’s painting depicts a human skull and the skeleton of what appears to be a shark’s open jaws. Faint angular lines trace desire paths that draw the viewers’ gaze, suggesting pathways through which the swimmer may pass, to escape or to capture – all the while knowing that any such liberty is only fleeting.

“Take the Witches’ Path out” in itself is based on a three card tarot reading, in situ, to ascertain the fortunes of two prisoners who escaped from San Marino’s jail in August 2018. Its eccentric layout starts in the middle: the Centro Storico, San Marino’s old mountain-top city centre and location of its jail. The prison is a small collection of cells in a wing of the Capuchin Monastery, just outside the city walls. We witnessed the roadblocks, dawn paraglider and helicopter reconnaissance missions and the barking of police dogs through the night in their efforts to stop the prisoners crossing into Italy. Through scant news reports online we found out that these were the only two prisoners currently held in the jail.

The questions and tarot readings are set in Aubrey and the verse text is set in Sans Forgetica, a new Creative Commons font developed by RMIT in Australia, which has proved to aid memory when reading, through the now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t spaces placed in the characters. The font was chosen for “Take the Witches’ Path out” to follow the movements of the seemingly invisible prisoners and our own recurrent sightings of the same guards along Passo delle Streghe, the forested, cliff-top “Witches’ Path” between two of the three towers of central San Marino. Darker, more esoteric and mythopoeic practices are also referred to from The Dictionary of the Khazars (1989) by Milorad Pavić. All colours are extracted from photographs taken between the towers and the colours of the card readings are “quoted” from the ‘La Corte dei Tarocchi’ by Anna Maria D’Onofrio.

John Morgan’s poems offer a visual engagement with real, imagined or received experience of landscape, place, identity and myth. His writing often responds in situ to the works of other writers and artists, as well as to the land itself and how it receives and ‘writes’ the identity of the person moving through it. His poems have appeared in a glimpse of, The Learned Pig and Reliquiae, but are mostly published on his own website, Visual
