Things I Have Liked Recently on the Internet That You Should Read and Then Maybe You Will Like Them as Well

Lydia Ship, “Failure in the Underground Time,” from Requited:

Don’t ask me how it worked or how anyone got oxygen because what did I care? Everyone was so sincere and sincere is sex, so no, no one minded living underground, in our burrow or anywhere else, since violence went away forever and life was a boudoir mall cave: rock, and open-faced people, and things people bought before the underground time.

Kirsty Logan, “Queer Zombie Disco,” from Zombie Summer at Nothing to Say:

I finally find Mara, mostly in one piece, but with someone’s ankle bone imbedded in her temple. I take that as a sign that it’s time to go. I hoist Mara up onto my shoulder, climb over the slow-breathing bodies in the doorway, and prop her up in the backseat. I work on digging the ankle bone out of her skull until Tukie and the babydyke stagger out and start up the van.

Caleb J. Ross, “Sarah Palin, 12, Strikes for Workers,” from Oprah Read This:

Tell Sarah that someone bought her feces flag piece. She’ll know what piece that is.

(Have you checked out Oprah Read This, generally? It’s a pretty wonderful project.)

Audra Puchalski, “Four Poems,” from > kill author:

I have a small mouth       and a protective urge
