that slice of light between bolt and flame
that shining star stretched slip to freedom
that cut-bright-road

Vanilla lashes
something covertly began
spilled meteors
these windowpane clouds
disturbed winter mind
tethered years inside

under earthen bough
this wedding fanfare wild
steals inside
cradled embers
domed and tethered
by stolen rites

CUT-UP - An anthology inspired by the Cut-Up method - edited by A.D. Hitchin and Joe Ambrose

(from FB link - https://www.facebook.com/events/135879949939301/)

'When you cut into the present the future leaks out.' - William Burroughs

The Cut-Up Method was 'invented' by the artist Brion Gysin and popularized by his friend William Burroughs. It had roots in Dadaism, whose Tristan Tzara threatened to create a poem by drawing random words from a hat.
Creating a Cut-Up involves taking a given text and cutting it into single words, sentences, or paragraphs. The cut up texts are then rearranged by the artist – the creator of the new work.
This groundbreaking anthology features new and historic Cut-Ups by new and established artists, such as Cabell McLean, Dave Mitchell, Matthew Levi Stevens Kenji Siratori, Joe Ambrose, Gary J Shipley, Christopher Nosnibor, A.D. Hitchin, Niall Rasputin, Alex S. Johnson & more to be announced.


Joe Ambrose organised a Cut-Up event in London in April 2013 featuring new writing, film, and art. The author of 14 books, he has worked with Anita Pallenberg, Lydia Lunch, Gerard Malanga, William Burroughs, Marianne Faithfull and The Master Musicians of Joujouka. The Guardian has described his fiction as 'Unputdownable.' He divides his time between Tangier, Morocco and his native Ireland.


A.D. Hitchin is a contemporary practitioner of cut-up. His cut-up poetry was featured at the 'Cut-Ups @ Beat Hotel' event in 2013 and discussed in the academic text ‘Shift Linguals: Cut-Up Narratives from William S. Burroughs to the Present’ as well as at the Textual Revolutions Conference at the University of Stirling in 2009. Hitchin's debut book of cut-up, 'Messages to Central Control,' is available from Paraphilia/Oneiros Books.
