Language Liberation Front Communique #3 by Dave Roskos


tied tubes talk
the fallopian dreams
of babys born backwards.
the ritual involved with
preparing his first pot
of coffee, of rolling
the first few cigarettes
of the day, of consumption.
the caffeine/nicotine
jump-start jolt.
the unwound clock
staggering in the
direction of poetry’s
lost language.
semantics & personality
cults. charm.
a frame of reference.
the language liberation front
has struck again, this time
dismantling a newspaper office,
the web press stolen
& put to better use.
the liberation of language
which can only lead
to the liberation of tongues,
of minds; mentalities shifting.
money manacles.
new born messiahs aborted
at conception.

Dave RoskosDavid Roskos is a people’s publisher, he’s from the old school where you still use a printer and old-fashioned ink, and staples, and wrinkled poems that come in via the mail, and the poems in BIG HAMMER reflect a vision of America that is unfathomable to those in the suits & ties and even those with the ponytails and the birkenstocks. His poems are written by auto mechanics and plumbers and ferriers and people who know the difference between fuel injection and carburetors. Who still find old tires on the side of the road with some good tread still left on them and know how to get them on the rim and tie a come-along belt to cinch it to get the air in (use soap). David Roskos loves poetry and loves making books and loves the written word and he does something about it………….Mark Weber
