5 September 2009 Main Posts we translate, winking Overland Overloaded Our third Overland Overloaded guest blogger is variously known as IQ, Benjamin Theolonius Sanders, and the Poet Laureate for the Centre of Southern Folklore. IQ is a relative newcomer to Melbourne, but regularly wipes the slam floor with more established poetic Melbournites. He is the author of five chapbooks (please get a hold of one of them from him this Overload if you can: they’re really tasty little morsels), and the spoken word CD Somewhere in Memphis. IQ has haiku-ed his Overload launch experience by way of introduction to the Overland blog, and the results speak for themselves: Opening Orange polka dots- scarf keeps saying Overland. We translate, winking. Co-Founder’s Clip The stubble- still there. Black trenchcoat, well walked shoes too. Smart haircut Steve, Smart. Power Lines Josephine Rowe writes shit that makes you want to smoke- Just to be smoking. The last time I read one of her stories I drank four shots of vodka. Passionate Musts Yvette Stubbs like them If they write from their guts. Split skin like boxer’s lips. Roundtable Soul Chambers of hour hearts basked in full moonbeams. Earlobes licked up Matt’s poems. ©Benjamin Theolonius Sanders (IQ) 4 September 2009 Overland Overloaded More by Overland Overloaded Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
