Stendhal's Kite

















"Beauty is a promise of happiness" - Stendhal

"In the particular case of promising, as with many other
performatives, it is appropriate that the person uttering
the promise should have a certain intention, viz. here
to keep his word." - J.L. Austin

Stendhal's Kite is published by The Thing Quarterly,
San Francisco.

Poor Poetry

a thin, inconspicuous poetry, persisting on the margins,
a neglected, threadbare, hedgerow school of poetry,
light and resourceful, a common or poor poetry

a poetry without glory, using plain diction, withdrawn
from ambition, lacking in rhetorical skill, a spare poetry,
not given by the culture but passed from hand to hand
