From "Night Light," Danny Hayward (Hi Zero 27):
There is a great deal of pressure to be blasé
nihilistic, ironic, unconcerned,
to be stupid, iconoclastic,
to outface false desire
by preemptively owning it fully.
Can I yet believe you are better than that

Hix Eros #4 is out! This one’s a bit different, all about J.H. Prynne. It collects essays by Michael Tencer, Justin Katko, Lisa Jeschke, Timothy Thornton, Joe Luna, John Wilkinson, Abigail Lang, Keston Sutherland & Robin Purves, with an introduction by Keston Sutherland.
The collection is available as a free PDF. There will soon be a limited print edition too. If you are connected with a university, we’d really appreciate you ordering one for your library (Hix Eros #4, ISSN 2056-8908, price TBA shortly).
Those of you with Kindles (or the Kindle app) can also already buy Hix Eros #5, filled with reviews — written by Brandon Brown, Jennifer Cooke, Stephen Emmerson, William Garvin, David Grundy, Iain Morrison, Michael Tencer, Greg Thomas and Karen Veitch — of poetry by Connie Scozzaro, Dodie Bellamy, Richard Barrett, J.H. Prynne, Laura Elrick, Amy Todman, J.L. Williams and Nat Raha, and of Ian Heames’ little magazine No Prizes and Caroline Bergvall, Laynie Browne, Teresa Carmody, and Vanessa Place’s anthology I’ll Drown My Book: Conceptual Writing by Women. It usually costs 79p. A free PDF version will also be available, probably around the middle of this month.
