“Like as a Huntsman after Weary Chase”

August 15, 2013 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

THIS ISSUE’S VERSE: Ah, summer is slumming and becoming fall. We begin this autumnal issue with Mr. Jeff Coomer, who 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, avec human resources. Ms. Cindy Hill 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 a fine use of butter and garlic. For her part, Ms. Melanie Browne jarringly apposes a sense of immediacy with a sense of theater re: fat French actors. Similarly, Mr. David Alpaugh‘s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally, as well as being loaded, much like Disney’s latest animated films, with tragic and metaphysical portent. What begins as triumph soon becomes corroded into a cacophony of futility in Mr. Kenneth Nichols‘s powerful composition, allegedly written while sexting. All the while, Dr. Daniel Thomas Moran sharply defines a stunning moment in literary tradition based strictly on a jaundiced cynicism, parroting Mo Rocca’s best efforts at capoeira. Finally, C. H. Nissan, whose work explores the relationship between multiculturalism and vegetarian ethics, displays new variations generated from both constructed and deconstructed textures.

IN PROSE: Cleverly apropos of current cultural apocalyptica, Mr. Gordon Stanley sheds light on a post-moral landscape that embodies the failed technical sophistication of, say, Zack Snyder’s penis. Simultaneously, Ms. Helen Farquarson writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity, understood only by advanced civilizations not just undiscovered but also unborne.

IN CLASSICS: As momentary phenomena become distorted through diligent and critical practice, Ms. Helen Gray Cone raises important question about acquired synesthesia and recycling cultures.
