Brent Armendinger

Conjunctions Magazine is one of my favorite literature mags because of it’s wonderful content, balanced generously in both web and print formats. In January, Web Conjunctions published a set of poems by Brent Armendinger.

These four poems are from a new manuscript, still in progress. Brent has a distinctive voice, ready to engage the reader with his view of the world, and lead them in unexpected directions.

One of these poems, puts a face on the newest type of modern warrior, the drone pilot. Here is an excerpt from, The Flight Cage.”

“…holding the bird with his invisible string,
as if the war were not unkind. The casualties—

what is a casualty if not swallowed
by its facelessness—the digital idea of death

comes flapping across the water.”

Previous books by Armendinger include Undetectable and Archipelago. Amazon’s link for Brent’s work can be found here.
