An Autumn Moon as Sad and Round as Adele

September 24, 2012 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

THIS ISSUE’S VERSE: Welcome back! To begin, Mr. Max Gutmann offers a progressive work, one which more than decisively affirms, as one might expect, the perspicacity and concupiscence of this extraordinary journal’s mise-en-scène. Mr. Hal Sirowitz favors us with a poem that allows one to view the world in context of a post-racial, socially mediated age and its arrival as one of the multitude of paradigms exemplifying Romney’s “47 percent”. For her part, Ms. Rebecca Grabill jarringly apposes a sense of immediacy with a sense of theater re: universal healthcare. Similarly, Mr. Marc Carver‘s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally, as well as being loaded, much like Justin Bieber’s more meaningful works, with tragic and metaphysical portent. Meanwhile, Mr. Anthony Arnott sheds light on a post-suburban landscape that embodies the technocratic sophistication of, say, Harland David Sanders.

IN PROSE: Cleverly apropos of current cultural memetics, Mr. Marc Bilgrey sharply defines a stunning moment in literary tradition based strictly on a jaundiced cynicism, with a small salad. Simultaneously, Mr. Bernie Keating, of the Staten Island Keatings, writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity, with pinky finger raised.

IN CLASSICS: As momentary phenomena become distorted through diligent and critical practice, Mr. Dustin Michael raises important question about space-faring extinct reptilian species. With influences as diverse as Sappho and Miley Cyrus, Mr. Houghton Piker offers new variations manufactured from both explicit and implicit socially constructed discourse. What starts out as triumph soon becomes corroded into a cacophony of futility in Mr. Stoney Emshwiller‘s powerful composition, allegedly written during morning ablutions.
