“The Violent Was Flawed on the Lawn”

March 21, 2016 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

THIS ISSUE’S VERSE: In his work, which we are once again proud to feature here, Hal Sirowitz explores the relationship between new class identities, counter-terrorism, feng shui, and time management. With influences as diverse as Martha Stewart and Cookie Monster, Melanie Browne explores the relationship between the tyranny of intertextuality and Nicomachean Ethics. By studying sign processes, signification, and communication, A.J. Huffman gifts us with a poem that allows one to view the world in context of a post-gender, socially mediated age and its arrival as one of a multitude of paradigms. Ever contemplative, Valentine Williams questions the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations, and ideas normally function regarding human sexual identity. Similarly, James B. Nicola‘s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally. What begins as triumph soon becomes corroded into a cacophony of hopelessness and futility when Megan Cassidy sheds light on a post-moral landscape that embodies the failed moral sophistication of populism. Rando Úchylák sharply defines a stunning moment in literary tradition based strictly on a jaundiced cynicism, harkening back to a commentary on trends in modern self-absorption. Martin Levinson displays new variations generated from both constructed and deconstructed notion of immortality. Meanwhile, Blake Austin writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity, understood only by advanced cultures not just undiscovered but as yet unborne. And, finally, S. B. Klein‘s poem attempts to assail the broadest and most metaphysically significant questions of human existence, allowing her work to become a mirror into which readers do not merely look, but become a part. This issue’s headline taken from “A Cold Spring” by Elizabeth Bishop.

    Thank you for yet another excellent article. You always post excellent articles! How do you do it? Seriously, none of them have been non-excellent. It’s amazing. It’s a wonder. Your level of article excellency is wonderfully consistent. I am going to mention it in my presentation next week, even though my presentation has nothing to do with this ideal kind of writing. I am so in awe. Much appreciation!

    Thank you for yet another excellent article. Really! Thank you! By the way, where else might anyone get more of this type of information? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for more such ideal kind of writing that I can copy and paste into my Prezi.

    I don’t want to go to the library because libraries give me heebie jeebies because of all the books and paper and stuff. Please let me know. I would truly appreciate it. Really! Thank you!

    Thank you for any other excellent article but this one. This one is fine, I guess, but I literally could have read any other excellent article and come away with a more enriching experience. The Interwebs are full of ideal kind of writing just like this, and you could have posted any one of those and for that I would have been truly grateful. But for this exact one, I cannot. I have a presentation subsequent to this, and it will be based on excellent articles, but not this one, not ever. Thank you!

    You’ve ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God bless you, man. Thank you for another excellent article. In fact, thank you for all of the ones you used here. As always, your articles are kinds of adjectives that are always used with and give some information about a noun. Where else can I find excellent articles in such ideal kind of writing like the ones you use? I have a presentation next week, and I want to make sure I use excellent articles like you have.
