a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I always wonderd why in tv and magazines that to be somebody you have to skinny , cake up in make up and make fool of yourself.Why can't be people you dont have sleep with strangers or its okay chubby around the edges. I don't care about being perfect because i dont care what people think, the only person you have to make happy is yourself not this dumb magazine airbrush people who dont even know who they are.

It was a good first time for me at the Midwest Zine Fest in Champaign Urbana. (Or, as craigslist calls it, "Chambana.") The fest was on the Urbana side. I drove down with friends Nicki and Meghan from SPOC -Self Publishers of Chicago, and they had a table. I had my Junk Drawer table, which was actually two old card tables I brought. Other Chicago writers making the trip included…Continue

I am a REAL zinester I promise! I published 12 issues of my paper zine. Problem is no one wants to cough up a buck for a zine anymore so I decided to switch to an e-zine. I need subscribers though. It gets sent out twice a month and only has one ad. Please subscribe. It's free! Thanks!

THE AGONY OF WANTING
inside this month of broken skin
and bitten lips
(while some shiver
and i melt)
you make me remember why the sky must grow dark,
why my skin grows cold
as one breath precedes another.
i have learned the difference
and pure motion,
between regret and the agony
that snaps every blue flower
and spits ice into the skies.
there is no easy…Continue

Begin here. I set my thermostat to 82 degrees, and listen to my daughter breathe at night.
It is an odd thing to miss you. The stillness that I feel inside myself has a quality that I cannot name. Now it’s bitter. Now it’s sweet. The taste is all iron and cardamom deep inside my mouth.
It’s been a strange year.
All summer long, I drank and drank. And drank. Thirsty Thursdays on the Blue Ox…Continue

this house smells like old coffee
and something else-
some cross between dirty
and dinners i let burn
... before i threw away.
i am rarely there; i leave
the windows open all day
everyday. walk through the door.
vanish into bed each night.
