What's New

Cooling showers, apricots and gillyflowers

July 1, 2010 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

This month’s selections promise a polyphony of puissant and pulchritudinous metaphors. Ms. Laura K. Deal desentimentalizes core issues surrounding the (westernized) vicissitudes of the common hausfrau. Pretty. Debuting in our journal, Mr. Kevin Shea attempts to reinterpret the social media manifesto and examines the literal truth underlying “Nutter Butter” and the like. Delicious. In his latest poem Mr. Hal Sirowitz challenges readers to recontextualize cloacal preconceptions, engaging them to take all of his reductive symbolism. All of it! Very good. Mr. Albert Van Hoogmoed‘s latest work inflates a quality of visceral self-absorption contrasted with a flaccid emotive disconnect. Keep it up, Mr. V.H. Ms. Heather Dubrow‘s poem textually references Mr. Shakespeare’s existential masterwork, harkening to the exhortative expressions of the play’s misguided (though perhaps not misguiding) dodderer to his offspring, Mr. Laertes. Sexy. Mr. g.g. trolliings debuts here with his idiosyncratic modus operandi of inflammatory, extraneous, and off-topic consanguinity with avant-garde styles. Mr. Gary Lehmann‘s new poem forthrightly dissipates the sense of things at once precisely and numinously understood. We think. Excellent. Mr. Marc Carver eschews high-flown rhetoric to reconstitute the recollective conscious of place, place of preservation and dissemination of information resources. Shhh. Mr. Emmons transports readers on an exploratory voyage regarding the prurient proclivities of a certain cultural icon. Asian-American Mr. Suet Go comes face to face with a manifestation of the mysterium tremendum et fascinans in his kitchen, delish.

In our newly expanded prose section, Mr. Adam Bulger dissects a loquacious celebrity of the order anura to refute gaelic-cum-mythic conventions regarding polychromatic firmamental phenomena. Ribbiting. In his essay, Mr. Daniel Thomas Moran waxes in simpatico with persona of a psychologically disordered mental or emotional state of being. Eureka. Daughter of the former publisher of Asinine Poetry, Ms. Creely Piker is therefore allowed to tell her tale of a tailed icthysimian. If you must.

Finally, in our classic asinine section, Ambrose G. Bierce delineates the near-aquatic misadventures regarding Dame Mehitable Moore.

Alas, we had no viable entries for our 48-Hour Challenge. Cela n’a pas d’importance. Next month, asininers!

Happy birthday, Gooby!

    Serializing Ms. Piker’s story of the monkeyfish? What wonderful madness! Can’t wait for the next installment!
