Magazine. Fiction. Poetry. Cultural Writing. The third issue of VANITAS uses poetry to think about song, remembering that poetry begins as song, even if it ends as speech. Darinka Novitovic Chase provides a personal account of "Great Clubs I Have Danced At." Other texts include a comparison of Iggy Pop to a 17th-century Jesuit orator from Portugal, a reminiscence of London in the late 1960s, and a meditation on Cat Power. Includes new poems by Louis Armand, Joshua Auerbach, Richard Bailey, Scott Bentley, Irene Ferraro, Jason Lynn, Christopher Mulrooney, Rob Halpern, Ron Horning, Alix Lambert, Heller Levinson, Charles North, Paul Pines, Chris Pusateri, Stephen Ratcliffe, Raphael Rubenstein, Morgan Russell, Larry Sawyer, Barry Schwabsky, Ray Succre, and Phoebe Wayne, a portfolio of Beatles poems, prose and diverse contributions by five authors, an excerpt (with commentary) from the Bill Berkson and Barrett Watten collaboration, "I Can Hear It Now," and an art feature by Jack Pierson.
