    0 comments
    DEATH BY INTERNET Carvalko takes the reader to the outer edge of technology and ethics in a speculative fiction that evokes the bizarre power of the Internet to reveal if the world is merciful. A fitting topic in light of contemporary America, with its frequent violent episodes and inadequate political responses. Strapped down and dying in a prison cell, Sam Mariani tells the story of how he searched for an objective "good," inviting the public to respond to his blog, but rather than click the familiar “Like” button as on Facebook, they voted to either “Die” or “Live”, depending on whether the..

    BEHIND THE STEEL- ONE LIFE—FIVE EPOCHS

    0 comments
    Behind the Steel, a book of poetry, takes the reader through a century filled with the experiences of people who toiled in the inner cities, on vast prairies, and who came to know the zones of war, and other conflicts, and offers a perspective that will resonate with anyone who thinks hard about where we came from and for what purpose. Carvalko's work deals with death, loses of the heart, and old age, when the past stands still and time quickens, when the echoes of the past ricochet and scatter into pure energy.  He casts a sharp eye into a search for meaning through action, but discovers that..

    My poem: “County Road 80” about a New Mexico Sephardic Jew appears in Manifest West: Different Roads (Pub: University Press of Colorado) an anthology that reflects both "the myth and the truth about what we call the 'West." The editors of Different Roads remind us that our "strength lies in differences, not in similarities," what Stanley Baldwin refers to as "the many-sidedness of truth.------------ COUNTY ROAD 80----------- Between Cordova and Truchas, el hombre looks skyward, wizened, blinded by the sun’s flux, in honor of that birth-marked wiry muscled clan clawing desiccated soil from an I..

    FLARE: The Flagler Review- Möbius Strip

    By Joe Carvalko As the centuries turned one into another, we lost the gift of ancients for hearing muted primal screams, for seeing Munch’s faceless shriek— the unmistakable precursors of everything spiraling into darkness. I did not see her wane and wander in the whirligig of despair, until they threw the keys away. They took her to the place where lights bounced-off linoleum worn and polished, behind metal doors with a window— a lock turned, behind which people twirled, laughed, lifted dresses over their heads or sucked their thumbs and bawled. I searched for tapestries of blues, births, dea..

    A Deadly Fog: Pith and Conflict

    0 comments
    A Deadly Fog portrays war in its various manifestations, historically and as we witness war around the world, today such as in Iraq. Through stories, essays, poems and importantly art, it draws the reader through the voice of the poet and the eye of the artist in a relentless expression of how war brings whole societies to their knees, killing, maiming and displacing thousands of people, both civilian and combatant. Based partly on firsthand experience and oft-heard narratives, the Carvalko has endeavored to describe human emotion at the deepest levels of loss and longing. The work has been th..

    A hard but intimate look into the life of one man and his travels across an epoch of experience, place and time. It speaks to the universal experience of wanting to discover an inner-self. In a deeply personal introspection, Carvalko concludes that life forms around a heritage having outlooks, strengths and weaknesses that antedate birth. Once born we immediately begin to modify the heritage passed down creating lifelong attitudes through which we assess right, wrong, the good and the bad. We come to learn about what makes us happy, sad, frightened and motivated and this too has a lasting affe..
