Aught, no. 9 (2002)

Chris Piuma issue

Chris Piuma is a writer and musician who lives in Portland, Oregon. He is the editor of flim and part of Sad Penguin Records' roster of musicians. Just a few of the many reasons to enjoy his writing are the evidences of influence by OuLiPo and other wonderful avant-garde writings, the use of formal methods and chance operations in composition, and the humor and playful spirit of the writing.

Chris Piuma has long been a favorite at AUGHT, and we're excited to have these two longer poems as our first single-author issue.  — Ed.
