back when I was almost cool —

“Agent of Chaos That would be Steven B. Smith, the man behind Cleveland’s cult classic journal ArtCrimes, a limited edition lit/art publication that emerged during the mid eighties. Now you can order up your own at Steven’s agentofchaos website, launching literary outrageousness, entertaining criticism, art slide show, plus 900 pages of collage, mixed media, photography, guest artists and everything your mother warned you about. He has consistently refused to be conditioned by the public, and it’s a good thing; we love his contagion of undiluted underground art / lit / philosophy / abuse.” – – – – – – Cool 09.10-09.17 2003- Tisha Nemeth, senior editor

Libby’s Poem

The bigger the dog
the bigger the nose
the bigger it smells
the bigger it knows

This is the Liberty Lynne Green art corner post.

Above is her first spoken poem with us. She recited it to us in the car.

The 1st refrigerator poem below she did last visit, and added to it this visit.

Her head assemblage is her non-existent “brother” Bumblebee.

She’s 5 yrs 8 months and obsessed with doing art with her Aunt Kathy (who is obsessed with her).

“Humble thanks to Steven the Sisyphus Smith for fine poetry and visuals on this St. Patrick’s Day, 2022! Like the rest of us, he’s rollin’ the rock right up that hill, trying to make sense of it all (a fool’s errand, for sure). Hang in there (hang up?), Smith—keep leading us by laughter! (God knows, there’s plenty to laugh at these days…)” – Kathy Kieth, editor/publisher Medusa’s Kitchen (send her some worx, folx).

78 feature past 76 months at Medusa’s Kitchen . . . 9 poems, 10 fotos.
