The Final Poems by Arthur Rimbaud
by Christien Gholson
Christien Gholson is the author of the novel, A Fish Trapped Inside the Wind (Parthian, 2011), and two books of poetry, All the Beautiful Dead (Bitter Oleander Press, 2016; Finalist for the New Mexico Book Award), and On the Side of the Crow (Hanging Loose Press, 2006; re-issued by Parthian in the UK, 2011), a work of loosely linked prose poems. Kill-Floor is a section from a new manuscript called The Black Edge. Two long poems from this manuscript have previously appeared here at Mudlark: The Sixth Sense and The Black Edge. Six poems from All the Beautiful Dead were also published by Mudlark and can be found here. Gholson’s take on Beauty & Terror, the paintings of Leonora Carrington, Rimbaud, The Day of the Dead, and many other subjects can be found on his blog: noise & silence.
