So, our readers, both of you, may have noticed that we were a little late with the latest issue. We have been busy! We’ve been working with the great Kate Showalter on a new anthology: Shiny Avocado of Lust: Erotic Poems, now available on Amazon Kindle. The new INEXPENSIVE ebook compilation explores the relationship between consumerist fetishism, recycling culture, and alligator pears. With influences as diverse as Colette, Sirowitz, and Einstein Moomjy, new tensions are distilled from both simple and complex narratives. Shiny Avocado of Lust features more than 30 poems, written by poets such as Jessica L. Kleinman, Bing Qi Lin, Catty Marlboro, Jaye Patel, Swifty McSwifterson, and Pajamaz, LOLCAT Poet, who should be familiar to both our Asinine Poetry fans. The anthology also features some new voices, whose names we do not remember. The familiar poets are the ones we’re featuring in this special issue, a preview of sorts of what you get with the titillating (in more ways than one) anthology. Shiny Avocado of Lust is part two of a three-part series we hope to publish this year, for no good reason at all. We hope you enjoy it!
