Coming Soon
"Absent The" was written by Steve Brightman in October 2012, at his usual rate of one poem per day. "The" is absent from his work in this chapbook, minus one reference in his title poem.

"You, friend, are no Sisyphus.
You may have your boulders.
We all have our boulders.

"But we don't all have to push.
Step off that pathway and
watch that boulder roll on by.

"It will come to rest someplace.
It will not be going any place soon.
It will be there if you want it."

- His Only World

"The Logic of Meteors" is a peculiar look at how weather is, more frequently than not, a peripheral character in the lives we lead.

"This summer is
the summer of
unfolded wings
and skyscraper
testaments."
-- Umbrellas on Decks

"The branches were
a symphony of whips
in the wind."
-- Symphony of Whips

"There is never a vacuum between seasons,
there is never an absence here."
-- The New Empty



About the author: 
Steve Brightman lives in Kent, OH with his parrot and two cadaverous knees. Every day he becomes more and more convinced that the music of the spheres is camouflaged by trains rumbling down their tracks.

Steve Brightman has a long version and a short version of his writing philosophy.
Long version: Stop talking about writing and start writing.
Short version: Shut up and write.

A Word from the Editor 
          Thank you so much for acquiring this volume of The Squire. It means a lot that you have gone through the trouble to steal/purchase/win the book. I hope it brings you many enjoyable hours of reading.
           This is our Third Grand Tournament and we keep getting better every year. Our competitors brought their absolute best work to the page and if you are privy to the stage round you’ll know the Judges made their best judgment.          Writing Knights is committed to finding those most connected to themselves and able to convey their thoughts and feelings through the written word to their audience. That is essentially what the Grand Tournament is about, connection. Writers who can connect to their  audience through the page and then through the stage.
           Writing Knights is glad to publish work by all of our competitors in this anthology and we hope to receive submitted manuscripts from them in the future.
          As for you, the reader, I have a challenge, or if you prefer, a homework assignment. Put together your best work and YOU enter the Grand Tournament next year. Even if you don’t make it to the finals, you will have at least proven to yourself you are committed to the perpetuation of poetry and the connection with a world wide audience.
           And next year, like this, will be glad I am not one of the judges. It would be just too difficult a decision. 
         
Thank you again.
