Two New Releases from Andy Hopkins

Two new releases are now up on the website - both by the multi-talented Andy Hopkins.

First of all, there's the poetry collection, "Dark Horse Pictures."

Originally published by Selkirk Lapwing Press in 2007, Andy Hopkins' acclaimed poetry collection is a deep, dark labyrinth of language.

Next we have the Ash Pony You Climb EP - our first music release.

Sample poem:

Dark Horse Pictures

Some day soon you’ll find me in a picture.

Lost for words in a dark horse picture.

Caught on film in the collage of your memory.

A stolen,

still, black and white reminder.

With peel away names and scratch away faces,

a grazing herd of dark horse pictures

is flash bleached against your skyline. I

saw I was ambushed in your landscape I

heard I was airbrushed from your photo I

thought I was glued into the margin I

feel I was ripped out of the canvas I’m

anonymous I

have no eyes I

have no laughter I

have no memory I

am immaterial history

in exposed films with startled faces

I look just like a dark horse picture.

Black and then white and then gone.

Black and then white and then

Blackandthenwhiteandthen gone.
