We respect all parties and wish hope this applauds the efforts  of those that are involved.  Always let us know if there is an issue we can fix. Sourcing: UBUWeb Picture archives. Sounds Collection. AllenGinsberg.org GREAT resource Open Sources, like Archive.org, and other Free or Rights Approved content and media sources Ok, busted. We googled a lot... The whole point is to get the audience  to learn more. To entice further investigation into a slice of American Lit History. Got beef? Let us know.  We will fix it  in the most Buddhist-vegan way! In keeping with the Dial A Poet tradition, I'd welcome you to visit our Anchor Podcasting site. Let's relive the moment... anchor.fm/socialyetdistanced select Message and leave feedback on this segment, and a poem of youd like.

Social Yet Distanced: Emotionalorphan "Stories from the Orphanage" Page 2 - 007 at Lenox
Social Yet Distanced:  Emotionalorphan "Stories from the Orphanage" Reliving through the #stories, #experiences and  #poems,  from the old "that's a great story, you should write that down" pile. Given the moniker "Emotional Orphan" many years ago,  embracing that title has served well, and most of my art  has been tied to the pseudonym. Pseudo- Name. From the "Warped Lives Of Blameless Children,  to the "escape from the orphanage" you likely will be engaged, and come back for more.  Maybe Offer some support.    And I won't have to keep trying to make myself sit down and write.  I can run off at the mouth espousing bs like I like to do....

Jane Burn, poet and artist   Pamphlets include:  Fat Around the Middle  (Talking Pen, 2015)   Tongues of Fire  (BLERoom, 2016).  Her collections of mention are more to it than bubbles  (Indigo Dreams, 2016),  This Game of Strangers  (Wyrd Harvest Press, 2017, co-written with Bob Beagrie),  One of These Dead Places  (Culture Matters, 2017),  Fleet,  (Wyrd Harvest Press, 2018),  Remnants  (Knives Forks and Spoons Press, 2019, again written with Bob Beagrie),  Yan, Tan, Tether (Indigo Dreams Press, 2020).  Her poems have been nominated for the Forward and Pushcart prize,  and she has placed in a number of poetry competitions.  She is a fellow Associate Editor at Culture Matters, with our own Dr. Fran Lock, where they  worked together on Witches, Warriors, Workers, an anthology of contemporary women's poetry.  Jane lives an eco-friendly lifestyle in a wooden cottage in Northumberland. Many of her poems are about her adoration of language and how it connects her to the many passions and parts of her life. She is working-class, a wife, a mother, bisexual, a poet, an artist and a maker. She is also late-diagnosed autistic, and this diagnosis she says has helped everything finally make sense. She is currently doing an MA in Writing Poetry at Newcastle University. And her next collection, Be Feared, is due out in November from Nine Arches Press. She also plays a rather fabulous ukulele.  ***** Opening TunePoemBomb from Rich Ferguson.

Social Yet Distanced: Down The Streets with A. Razor - Part III
A. Razor has experienced a second birth and an allowance of past and present works to converge. Razor gives us silhouettes of words dancing under dim street lights and first-hand experiences in the grips of self-destruction. He shows us the beauty there is after the vultures circle. ~ O.R. Buy Now Puro Purismo https://punkhostagepress.com/puro-purismo/ https://www.amazon.com/Puro-Purismo-Razor/dp/194021310X A. Razor was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1963, and brought to California at the age of one. Raised with a strong desire to read and write, but an even greater desire to survive his circumstances, which has aided his experience and longevity so far. He began writing and publishing in Los Angeles, around 1980 in various underground zines and publications. Expanding outward from there, he was discovered by Drew Blood Press, Ltd. in 1984, where he published 11 chapbooks up to 1995. He has read his work at many readings and spoken word events over the years and been published in many types of publications, ranging from those that are considered reputable to those that are of ill repute. He has fought hard to live and express his art in many different ways and in many different places. He became a member of the Hollywood Institute of Poetics in Los Angeles, CA in 2009. He has participated recently in the Poets In Prison panel at Beyond Baroque and the 2011 ALOUD reading series held at the Downtown Los Angeles Public Library. In 2012 he teamed up with Iris Berry to launch Punk Hostage Press, on which he released six titles of his own work and edited 10 more titles from as many writers, Danny Baker, Iris Berry, C.V. Auchterlonie, Carolyn Srygley-Moore, Rich Ferguson, Dennis Cruz, Frank Reardon, Alexandra Naughton, SB Stokes and Hollie Hardy. He collaborated on book cover designs with graphic artist Geoff Melville for many of these books.

A. Razor. American, West Coast Outlaw Poet, Desert Farmer. Dedicated Punk Hostage.

See here:Punk Hostage Press Today, a simple discussion of old days, good and bad times, friendships and the real led us down a path that editing will only dilute.

Social Yet Distanced: Showdown At The Am I OK Corral or How To Be an All Around Cowboy
Social Yet Distanced: Showdown At The Am I OK Corral or How To Be an All Around Cowboy Social yet Distanced and Ozark Poet Scot Young came together to discuss his new release "All Around Cowboy." Historically the cowboy mystique has centered around fatherhood, community and giving back to the common good. Just because. Scot Young talks with us from the role of a modern renaissance man, the post-modern cowboy , making the mystique real.  He speaks from his experiences growing up, the different times, bar fights, pro wrestlers and a stellar career as educator, and mentor who bleeds it all out in poems. The Poets Approve: “Scot Young may not want to hear this, but he isn’t a cowboy, not in the movie poster sense anyway. This book, his first, is the history of the man he’s become, stronger than his heroes Richard Brautigan and Charles Bukowski, educating young people, publishing countless others without thought given to personal reward, often helping them when they’re not in a position to help themselves, opening his heart and sharing a great love of literature, Scot Young is a great poet, but anyone can do that, he’s an even greater man, so I take it back, maybe he is a cowboy, but let’s be clear, John Wayne would never have the balls to be Scot Young.” -John Dorsey, Author of The Prettiest Girl at the Dance “When archeology digs up a book of poetry from this changing planet, it will reveal a bit of “Herodotus Americana” as Scot Young’s good cowboy rides into the sunset of the greatest generation and plays the last number on the jukebox. Like the songs, the poems of tragedy and joys, from miniskirts to baseball, grows up and glows up in the middle of the country’s golden era of post war years from the 50’s to 70’s. This all around cowboy knew the greats, from “Butterfly” to “Buk” while metaphorically herding the storm clouds out of the sky. Tragic, rough & rowdy, hip and cool, delicate for the heart and head, his poems, like Robinson, hits the balls and touches all bases, a book I surely dig and so will you, with “Hey good lookin’” on the cover times two. Plus, one can learn his great definition of poetry and discover the worst insult in Western idiom.” -Charles Plymell, author of Apocalypse Rose, The Last of the Moccasins “A beautiful, touching and often insightful journey that hits its mark, Scot Young’s  All Around Cowboyis a country rock rodeo get down. A place suspended in time where Mickey Mantle meets Jack Kerouac on the cosmic baseball diamond with Hendrix on guitar and a lonesome Whippoorwill calling the play by play in the voice of Hank Williams singing my jukebox’s got a hole in it. A down to earth collection of first love, brotherly love and true love straight from the heart, these poems are life and death lessons swimming in a swirling beer while sitting in an old school bar called father’s office somewhere in the land of sky blue waters.” –S.A.

Social Yet Distanced: Paul Corman Roberts Talks Bone Moon Palace, and Poetics with Dr. Fran Lock and an @emotionalorphan
Paul Corman Roberts Talks Bone Moon Palace, and Poetics with Dr. Fran Lock and an @emotionalorphan. "Paul Corman-Roberts 2nd full-length collection of Bone Moon Palace will be released by Nomadic Press July 3rd of 2021. Previous collections include The Abomunauts Are Coming To Piss On Your Lawn (Howling Dog Press, 2006), Neocom(muter)(Tainted Coffee Press, 2009), 19th Street Station (Full of Crow Chap Series, 2011) and We Shoot Typewriters (Nomadic Press, 2015.) His short story “The Deathbed Confession of Christopher Walken” shortlisted for subTerrain Magazine’s 2010 fiction contest. A three-time Pushcart and Best of Web nominee, he currently teaches workshops for the Older Writer’s Lab in conjunction with the San Francisco Public Library as well as the San Francisco Creative Writing Institute. He sometimes fills in as drummer for the U.S. Ghostal Service." Bone Moon Palace, like the ghost ship that its title poem commemorates, offers escape "not from everyone else but from everywhere else, a hiding place to be alone in sometimes." In these poems, you'll find community and solitude, candor and empathy, history and etymology. You'll find our oligarchy decoded; our mammalian nature disrobed. You'll find cold full moonlit nights and Darth Vader unsheathing his box cutters and so many beautifully-turned phrases: words tilled like soil to harvest a fresh poetic perspective. Enter the palace and behold, then, Corman-Roberts veering nimbly between jester and sage—dispensing "truth like smoke / disguised as tomfoolery."  Soma Mei-Sheng Frazier, 2017 San Francisco Library Laureate, author of Salve and Collateral Damage: A Triptych Paul Corman-Roberts’ imagination is a responsible spirit leading people to their sharpened teeth. His imagination is my friend. Riffs to live by wreathe poem after poem. Stowaway poems in this time of epochal shifts in the direction and velocity of social freight.  You can find Corman-Roberts underneath cracking thousands of wishbones with all phantoms and phenomena that hegemony would have you ignore. Here is a tally for lovers of poems to enjoy. Tongo Eisen-Martin, 8th San Francisco Poet Laureate, author of Heaven Is All Goodbyes and somebody is dead already Paul Corman-Roberts’ words create a lush, lyrical roadmap to navigate a world where one can feel lost in a sideways sanity. With heart, hope, and humor as his magnetic north, Corman-Roberts leads us along roads teeming with ghosts, shape-shifters, poisonous CEOs, and investment bankers. Rather than imposing upon us a “one-way ticket to the abyss,” replete with Eden-less days where memes are the new media and democracy is pummeled by “thugocracy,” Corman-Roberts offers us a proverbial light at the end of our journey—that poetry can offer sanctuary, and that even amidst a crumbling empire, we “still need to be held / need to be cuddled / even in the squalor of our own dust. Rich Ferguson, L.A. spoken-word performer, Beat Poet Laureate of California (2020–2022) and author of Everything is Radiant Between the Hates (Moon Tide Press, 2021)

Social Yet Distanced: The Gospel Of the Blue Collar From A Working Class Punk Hostage. Ladies and Gents, Dan Denton
Dan Denton, who incidentally knows nothing about that pesky Hoffa thing, at 13, read an original ode to Jesus at an evangelical church camp in Alabama.  The Christians loved it so much that an elderly minister felt called by God to anoint young Denton as a consecrated vessel to do God’s work for the rest of his life.  Denton became an atheist, and frequented underground punk shows, stole books from libraries. living a gutter drunk life in his early 20’s.  However, reading back alley poems to the homeless is God’s work Still leaves room for being a consecrated vessel... His writing has been published online, in print journals, multiple newspapers, and anthologies.  He has two previous chapbooks;  Bury My Heart in the Gutter (EMP Press, 2018)  and Give Us This Day Our Daily Grind: an Ode to the American Factory Worker (Lunch Bucket Brigade, 2020.)  He has read his poetry in support of 100k poets for change in multiple states and has read at underground  poetry festivals with some of America’s best outlaw poets. Dan sums it all up best...  I hope they put this on my tombstone: “Dan Denton gave his life to poetry and American labor.” Outro PoemBomb  from Rich Ferguson "SoundcheckAt The End Of The World" A collaboration with musician/producer  Bo Blount.  created remotely during quarantine.

Jane Burn, poet and artist   Pamphlets include:  Fat Around the Middle  (Talking Pen, 2015)   Tongues of Fire  (BLERoom, 2016).  Her collections of mention are more to it than bubbles  (Indigo Dreams, 2016),  This Game of Strangers  (Wyrd Harvest Press, 2017, co-written with Bob Beagrie),  One of These Dead Places  (Culture Matters, 2017),  Fleet,  (Wyrd Harvest Press, 2018),  Remnants  (Knives Forks and Spoons Press, 2019, again written with Bob Beagrie),  Yan, Tan, Tether (Indigo Dreams Press, 2020).  Her poems have been nominated for the Forward and Pushcart prize,  and she has placed in a number of poetry competitions.  She is a fellow Associate Editor at Culture Matters, with our own Dr. Fran Lock, where they  worked together on Witches, Warriors, Workers, an anthology of contemporary women's poetry.  Jane lives an eco-friendly lifestyle in a wooden cottage in Northumberland. Many of her poems are about her adoration of language and how it connects her to the many passions and parts of her life. She is working-class, a wife, a mother, bisexual, a poet, an artist and a maker. She is also late-diagnosed autistic, and this diagnosis she says has helped everything finally make sense. She is currently doing an MA in Writing Poetry at Newcastle University. And her next collection, Be Feared, is due out in November from Nine Arches Press. She also plays a rather fabulous ukulele.  ************************************ Opening TunePoemBomb from Rich Ferguson.

Social Yet Distanced: Sgt. Pepper Did Not Have to Be Lonely, Or How I Learned To Love The Smell Of Wet Poet
Fran Lock has a wonderful virtual sit-down with Alan Humm, founder and editor of One Hand Clapping,  a free online magazine that attempts to help new, under-represented and unpublished authors, as well as artists, musicians and composers, by featuring them in the same pages as those who are more established.  Alan is a writer and a teacher of English who has just completed his first collection, the intriguingly titled: A Brief and Biased History of Love.  He is also the editor and founder of One Hand Clapping Magazine, which began its online life last year, but which published a single glorious print version three years prior, and we're going to talk about that and about the transition from print to digital a little later on. So far, we have been lucky enough to feature work by Ali Smith, Les Murray, Hilary Mantel, Lydia Davis, Mark Doty, Colm Toibin, Paul Muldoon, John Burnside, Gillian Clarke, David Harsent, Martin Parr, and many others alongside our less-well-known contributors. They've managed to build a readership to be proud of.  https://www.1handclapping.online/

Patrick Davidson Roberts and Poetry Dr. Fran Lock, hold an engaging and insightful discussion on the current state of poetry. A question tackled is the pondering of whether or not the world has the space and attention for poetry? Are the poets ready for action, or re-action against the big empathetic gesture and lyric? Clues may be found in Patrick's work including his release "The Mains". Fran and Patrick go hunting...

Social Yet Distanced: John Dorsey, Poetry, The Prettiest Girls, Publishing and Pimps. An hour with Fran Lock and an EmotionalOrphan
This week we are pleased to have spent a little time with accomplished American Poet, John Dorsey for some great poetry, a little discussion on theory and craft, and most importantly, pimping strong in the art game with the best intentions. No, we don't mean exploitation, we mean selling books via dive bars or the internet. The conclusion is that suitcases work best for international book sales. You MUST be hands on. We do include an abundance of John's work and all the details on how to hear or buy more books.  As usual Fran Lock, my bestie, and a force of poetry does a most excellent job of talking about real poetics while making me look like I  know what I am doing, and to drop the names of important or cool names I know. Just like magic. We highlight some work from John's currently available titles: "The Prettiest Girl At The Dance", "Which Way To The River" and The "Profits of POETIC Dishcord" release compilation, "The Ghosts of Their Words Will Be Heroes In Hell"... and many more you probably can't have or find for sale... All joking aside, this one is special. It is longer than usual. We are proud of this one. Please like, share and subscribe. Consider supporting our work via the "Support Tab" on our Anchor.FM Homepage., via our emotionalorphan store on Redbubble, or Library of digital from Gumroad. As usual, for questions, links, to read a poem for a show, to get in touch with John about subscriptions, whatever, use the "Message Tab" on Anchor.Fm/emotionalorphan Remember 60 seconds, include email and name.  Peace and Read More.

Social Yet Distanced: Poetry, and an Intro to the Social Yet Distanced
The Social Yet Distanced is an Arts Collective. Our focus is on small press, small business, and all things art. Our platform is designed to carry us outside the norms many artists default to in the promotion of their work and the evangelism of art. We often find ourselves siloed into less than productive but established systems for furthering of the mission. As an example, many of my writer friends write books then promote them only to other writers who are also writing books they are promoting to other writers. Meanwhile, there is a probability the rest of the reading world has no idea that writer exists. We aim to break that mold.
