George Preston Nelson, Poetry

Through the “Door to the River” I See  AAA no Brechtian “earthquakes to come,’’ only cool Coltranian chromatic riffs ascending/descending  Giant Steps tween heaven and house, notes runnin-t-getha in clefs of black juice poured between strokes of the calligrapher’s cursive script. Cool, cool-cool, cool heat rising to the sky in the roof of our common heart. We pause in the saddle of understanding and look over the edge of time to the ancient rivers while that agile between the notes tumbles to our alluvial delta of Communitas.   East Village, NY July 1962 About the poet: George Nelson Preston is an artist, writer, activist, and more. He is the founder & director of the Museum of Art and Origins in New York City (www.museumofartandorigins.org).

Galanty Miller/ReTweets

  Maybe a pill… by Galanty Miller Columnist With all the horrible things going on in the world, it’s very comforting to know that at least Mr. Rogers is still alive./ Bisexual? Heck, I’m TRIsexual because I won’t try ANYTHING./ So much information out there. Teens need to know that you can’t get pregnant by humping your friends’ furniture when you house-sit for them./ As my financial advisor explained it to me, “You’re bankrupt because you spent all your savings on expensive European skin moisturizers.”/ Don’t forget! Tomorrow is National Yesterday Day. It’s the one day of the year that we get together to celebrate today./ I truly believe that our nation works best when Americans are completely divided over every single issue. If I could have dinner with any two people, living or dead, I’d choose Gandhi & Kylie Jenner- so Gandhi could see how the world turned out./ It was an ugly divorce. But I sent a Facebook friend request to my ex-wife, just to show there are no hard feelings./ Medical technology is amazing. I truly believe that in my lifetime, a mound of cocaine will be replaced by a single pill./ Maybe my ungrateful, unappreciative family should celebrate YOU’RE WELCOMESGIVING!/ Whoever invented Twitter knew the exact amount of characters necessary to keep your tweets from being significant./ Here’s another kids joke for adults: Q Why...

William Wolak/Poetry & Collage

  Unpredictable Pleasures You’re a shipwreck rusting into sand, but keep the wind’s sighing inside your tattered sails even when the world seems cold as a coffin’s white silk lining. Like the breathlessness of sparks, the unpredictable pleasures of love always arrive capriciously. The one who demands burning never neglects kindling; every raging fire begins by igniting parched twigs. The one who demands burning never regrets singed hair or scorched flesh. If the embrace of fire suddenly opens before you, become the rain’s kisses locked in wood.   Whenever the Mirror is Empty Whenever the Mirror is Empty Whenever the Mirror is Empty, collage by William Wolak #Art #Collage #William Wolak Album William Wolak/Drawings Category Art Elusive As the Sweat of Pearls Elusive As the Sweat of Pearls Elusive As the Sweat of Pearls,collage by William Wolak #Art #Collage #William Wolak Album William Wolak/Drawings Category Art Fleeting As the Wind's Kiss Fleeting As the Wind's Kiss Fleeting As the Wind's Kiss, collage by William Wolak #Art #Collage #William Wolak Album William Wolak/Drawings Category Art The Blush That Transforms Your Body The Blush That Transforms Your Body The Blush That Transforms Your Body, collage by William Wolak #Art #Collage #William Wolak Album William Wolak/Drawings Category Art Waiting To Be Touched Waiting To Be Touched Waiting To Be Touched, collage by William Wolak #Art #Collage #William Wolak Album William Wolak/Drawings Category...

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
