Some time ago a micro-ish poem of mine called ‘A two step guide for men to increase their masculinity’ appeared in ‘The Modern Man’ edition of the very cool ‘zine Mother [has words…]. Edited & lovingly created by homme-extraordinaire Scott-Patrick Mitchell, Mother [has words…] embodies ‘zine-ness – it’s hip, it’s DIY, it’s punk (in the brazen-we-don’t-care-’bout-nuthin’-other-than-Art sense) and it’s in your face.
Coincidentally, the featured artist of this edition was the synth-disco auteur and one man punk rock maelstrom Tomas Ford, a man cooler than all of us put together for having released his new early-90s inspired rave-rap party bomb ‘Loudspeeka‘ as a cassingle. What!?!?! Yep.
A two step guide for men to increase their masculinity
1. Forget the meanings of the words ‘increase’ and ‘masculinity’.
2. Just be.
