    A resident of NY, Stephen Mead is a Outsider published artist, writer, maker of short-collage films and sound-collage downloads.
    In 2014 he began a webpage to gather links of his poetry being published in such zines as Great Works, Unlikely Stories, Quill & Parchment, etc., in one place:




funny freckle, once
near to dust speck
yet tangential for the circumference
circling lips, the sensuous nose…

By sighs Pinocchio probed,
a compass tracing the smiles
which grew-
The math of them,
the math of these now-

Dot, dot, & “Out!”
would say Lady M.,
but we are Trojan
for the legions on skin &

hymnal, Amazing Grace
shimmers where lotion smooths
the purple to blue
