What about sleeping a little longer and forgetting all this nonsense, he thought, but it could not be done, for he was accustomed to sleep on his right side and in his present condition he could not turn himself over. However violently he forced himself toward his right side he always rolled onto his back again. He tried it at least a hundred times, shutting his eyes to keep from seeing his struggling legs, and only desisted when he began to feel in his side a faint dull ache he had never experienced before.
—Kafka















Continuing in our abiding interest in forensic entomology, this "September" issue of The Transcendental Friend features state-of-the-art freeze-fracture images of the drosophilia (fruit fly) brain, a catalog of moths and candles and the images they illuminate, five excurses on the Romanian night (for which candles), and the brilliant light of Reason of Today's Not Opposite Day (or, The Night) (or Night) for which sleep and monsters etc.

Which is to say:

Ten sonnets by Tim Atkins, in Laird Hunt's Bestiary.

The Comte de Montesquiou's "Moth," presented by Jeffrey Jullich in Idiosyncratica.

Five early Romanian poems of Paul Celan (!) translated by Julian Semilian & Sanda Agalidi, in Leonard Schwartz's Report from the Field or Afield or a field.

Mike Kelleher's "Revue" of a poem by Charles Bernstein, in Dan Machlin's Review.
