it was amazing

We are the publisher, so all of our authors get five stars from us. Excerpts:


Camille watches The Donald
cozying up to Sarah Palin,
degenerating MILF,
maverick moron,
Tea Party darling.

It’s amazing that much
willful disinformation
in a confined space
doesn’t implode the skulls
of cheering fans
who gather around them.

Camille craves tokes
to erase coming months
of campaign chatter,
political pandering.

Regrets going dry
at a time when
she desperately needs
a prolonged bender,
then sustained blackout.


Camille considers renouncing American citizenship,
relocating to a funky Alicante flat
overlooking cafés and pocket parks,
a glimpse of silvery ocean.

She imagines morning excursions
tethered to the leash of a fat, spoiled Chihuahua,
casual flirtation with lively gentlemen
still in possession of that certain sparkle.

Hers would be the wrought iron balcony
spilling red geraniums, after-dark laughter.
She envisions intimacy on her terrace, sipping wine
beside the evening’s hot lover.
