DUSIE
 THE RADICAL VERNACULAR ISSUE

WITH GUEST EDITOR 

MICHAEL SIKKEMA

---- www.dusie.org ----


Radical Vernacular isn't only rural, and is not a movement. Forget what you've heard. A movement moves a bit forward and stops. A movement is identified by watching how its tracks appear in the mud, by how it's seen.

Radical Vernacular is identified by how it changes the way WE 
see. It's WEATHER; we like it or not. It lights sheds and sheds 
light. Radical Vernacular needs no manifestoes, but each blink is a palimpsest, current-recurrent. These poets pitch our present tense.

I hope you enjoy reading their work as much as I enjoyed collecting it.
