words, birds and whatever else by James Brush

While Sitting in Church

My videopoem “While Sitting in Church” was featured yesterday over at qarrtsiluni as part of the Worship issue. The poem is from my Birds Nobody Loves series, which will hopefully soon become a short collection when I can find the time to finish it off. Anyway, check it out, and thanks to issue editors Kaspa and Fiona who accepted it within hours of my submission. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten an acceptance so fast. It’s a great issue they’ve put together so spend a while checking things out, especially Sherry Chandler’s “Doxology.”


  1. Will the collection be published, James? Well worth waiting for on the strength of the q. poem.

    The issue editors were certainly quick with their responses. I got my rejection pretty much by return!

    • Thanks, Dick, for your comments here and at q. I’m planning to bring it out under my own imprint hopefully by the end of the year. I’m not in a rush, but I’m getting increasingly excited about how it’s coming together.

  2. I love this piece and the rest of what I’ve read by you.
