Even Though I Don’t Miss You by Chelsea Martin

Even Though I Don’t Miss You is a humorous, yet honest collection of confessional prose poems that study the process of processing the end of a relationship. Which sounds like it could be intensely sentimental and urgent, but it’s not... read more >

Sunday

It’s surprising how quickly you can go from hero to goat. When I returned to my star early the next morning, Zorro was back and the first to come up with my alternate rap song: “Spidey-Chicken, Spidey-Chicken, he’ll run from any ass-kicking.” Storm Trooper must have been an actor because he made the most lifelike chicken noises to accommodate the song, and all of the gang flapped their wings whenever I was near... read more >

After Mike Wallace’s Interview with Salvador Dali, 1958

World of Tomorrow and the Quit-Bang Language of the Future, Directed by Don Hertzfeldt, 2015

I came of age with the internet. In 1994, I opened my first email account and used a unix based client called Pine to read it.

Friday

Hangover. How can it last two days? It sucks getting older. Something always hurts a little more than it used to, and that includes old wounds.
