BRAINSICK RIVER by Gary J. Shipley

Excerpt from SPOOK NUTRITION a novel-in-progress

Crashing from malware, silt of my head grown inverted in schemes clogged with disarrangements of arrested self-cognizance to end up at me, at anything flowing and held alone in the vessel drowning in that cosmetic destiny of catalogues, the sick in drainrays of my starved monkeys peeling grenades for their jacuzzi meat god, torn watching me clawed like dead spiders and cursed into rivers, chewed mingling in lotions embodied by those obscene miles pervaded by fingers, by length and sculptural scenes rotted and tremulous in hovels of pneumatic breeding, of perceptions crawled through with unvarnished glimpses, our facsimiles screaming, straining against the accident, against vacant lingering recollections of some dreamed disservice made sentient on the lips of garaged islands, where men with metal fingers and eyes of scorched tinfoil study abnormalities caught supervening on the earth, murderous cup-swap slimes bounded in hoax hair and industrial light, their sunken interiors exhumed riddled with ante-chambers and uranium, their crag bones chasms sucked from the insides of rodent genitals, from jaws cast open like cold mathematical puddings doused in spotted visions and grotesque ciphers for the sake of our trembling quackeries of substance, its gulping performers blooded in folded parking-lots, the bodies and cars mangled in ventriloquist postures, tortured rhetorical inside scratches that never complete, and in our gloomriverblackness fucked fat with eels we hang unaware dying beset and bearing the raconteur foam of eternity, the nightmare stealth of medical songs featuring rare impregnations, chemo marrow ripe with the green pissy seed of inorganic children, their dexterity of violations unique in damp diseased archways where red giggling impedes surprise and where we scrutinize our tenderized fingers curling like crayfish, our senses drenched enraptured by spikes and portraitures of evil above the wriggling gates of our invisible restraints, above seas adapted from decaying ceilings clad in panicked improvisations, limbs held down in human holes drunk on the pen of some instinctive transmission, and what I found was the voice in a fragment of trees and a vortex in the junkyard darkness where suction became a proclivity, and us so frenzied in ourselves, our corpses novelties, comprehensions of error, my teeth to attention, spun up on massacres, all my fidelities to old agonies scarred blushing, their topography drooling, our apotheosis forcing sunrises from rotting perfumes and epithets on hotel walls as we pray through nights practiced in doorways, hidden behind the new perverseness of strangers, all faces bolted to their disappearance under the glare of one common obstruction, and we run into the gleaming viscera of morning, birds sold into pacts of stillness suffering voiceless, the water running black like vermin, its unseen feet divining the profusion of robots, bared brains curdling in the sun its victims floating inside us, my intricacies far off clustered in flyspeck heads and analised curses that I can’t pronounce freely, stolen in intervals of wreckage and acid glimpses of its grazing ivy leeching sinews and bone, the evening doubt lighting our withered casements, our soil centres, our lungs dangling in asthma

Butterfly Photo by Jane L. Carman

Note from the author: "While the [below] image...is neither a carrot, nor any recognized breed of butterfly[, i]t is of the Bertoli Roosterus Butterfly and was taken in my back yard on a 105 degree day in July of 2010. I believe the creature to be either rabid or drunk."


Fiction Dribble by Patrick Trotti


I didn't have the courage to go through her stuff. It was easier to let her presence linger.

I paid her phone bill just to hear her on the voicemail. Friends drunk dialed their girlfriends. I would call her, hoping she'd answer.

She never did, but I never stopped trying.

Flarf Poetry by C.P. Harrison

"Good Friday (drive-thru)"

How are you Jesus Christ?
The friday saga... was classic!
you're gonna be sitting in the drive-thru at carl's jr
your drive-thru herpes next to my inner thigh,
with really dirty limericks,
a multicolored tribal tattoo,
your lady sized wee wee,
Tiger off with a bunch of fags
jump in their pickups, and drive sixty miles in the rain to pick up a
stranded biker (Budget Schwarzenegger)
The young gropee should be grateful for the attention
... I didn't savor the idea
It gives me a good feeling
.... tonights one of those nights

"albatross 4"

god something smells really bothersome on this train
cannot pinpoint it
i think it is a meat of some sort

"albatross 5"

alchemically translate the mundanities of suburban life
where is the locus of beauty though?
the beating hearts of cars

"albatross 6"

my uncle trades fish to the milkman for free milk
my mom walks into the room singing a song by train
i am going to wear a wolf shirt out in public today


A Poem by peterbd

"according to bruh man"

recently had an earnest conversation with bruh man from the 5th floor
herein lies everything you need to know about m.m. (according to him)

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. was born with superpowers but renounced them at age 8 because they didn't click with his personal brand

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. bitchslapped samuel l. jackson because he felt like it at the time

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. is genuinely a nice person if you solemnly swear not to fuck with him

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. can throw down on some mac and cheese!

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. could give two shits about the debt ceiling

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. was there the day tupac was shot and can reveal no further information

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. will iron your clothes in a way that's close to godliness

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. taught christina aguilera everything she knows

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. thinks the world should be thinking about a solution to the rebuilding of haiti instead of pumping money into its corrupt government. the world's leaders are really slacking m.m. believes.

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. will win the pulitzer prize but give it away because it's gonna be sooo fucking uncool by then

according to bruh man from the 5th floor m.m. is the reason oj is finally locked up for good

Three Pieces by Darren Wyngarde


pulsing alien time dildo
take comfort you slave worms
eat the drip of boiling tones

Ruby disappearing in prick thunder
her brain a rancid blanket
stuck in boiling pig death sedate pop coil
what a space

shit sniffing boiled hair brainless wig hound
fucking glue the inept video
sniffing video cannibals

and everywhere the dusty shift
beast bone things
brains and graveyard stench
a sea of rancid aliens

twinkle brain
wang vomit
shit shit
complicated barbarian
blowing on the empty bone
nice worm explosion

the inept smell of

uncontrollable dog things

knickers on the edge
submarine diamonds lubed with power

nice vomit wires in empty spaces



beast vomit
the nun smell
shit pop video
dildo hit tones
sniffing of hands
the hog shat empty
uncontrollable tambourine bone
nice wig
moist sluicing cannibals
His eggs drip
bog brain explosion
graveyard power
fucking aliens
sea prick of mime worms
dog of space


doomsday vomit wig with graveyard power
nice teeth in a dirty galaxy

fuck the anxiety of anxious shit worms
fuck their uncontrollable green memories
fuck them where they wriggle

boiling hair in lubed agony
boiling rancid magic

this fucking cosmic house
this rancid cosmic dildo

cosmic cannibals hump hot magic vomit

sniffing anxious glass tones
sniffing boiled funeral dildo
sniffing gravy knickers

funeral smell in impossible glass

anxious and moist

"albatross 1"

god i can't breathe or think
i can't drink acid for breakfast
that's my biggest concern in life

welcome the ghosts into the tight spaces of your heart
there needs to be a fundamental shift though
i’m going to kill everyone

"Aphrodite Hymn for Sappho"

Aphrodite Great Immortal Throne
Zeus, witch girl thanks
In Queens, anxiety and stress here
                   Do not crush my soul

What I said before -
You can make my voice calls from far away
And here, you and your father
            Neighboring properties;

Couriers wing wagon universal
The fluid exchange in the dark FAST
infinity dike lot, like a

So I would like to come, God bless,
Smile, you need to ask content gods
Oh, a new strike

What is your greatest desire is the foolish heart
I was now, I think attracts me
It was pretty confident
        Sappho was influenced you?

Why do we still follow soon
And he immediately offered the same thing, if you refuse a gift
Yes, you can not love is I know right
        Are welcome.

Come back, please spare me the pain of giving
Car Care, please visit the Statue of Ohio
I understand that a long time to achieve
        As an ally.
