A.g. Synclair Stops By Zombie Logic Review To Rain On Our Parade

It has been brutally hot all week. I wish there was an impending storm here in Rockford. Maybe this poem by A.g. Synclair will help seed the storm. 

impending.storm.shit

I’ve never understood
this fascination with the sun
a gray sky is a like a friend

or 
a beautiful woman
that fucks you with her beautiful darkness
and cums on you with words

but, then again
a beautiful woman can kill you
just like the sun


A.g. Synclair is an unapologetic pessimist, rule breaker, and rebel without a clue. When he isn't editing The Montucky Review and serving on the editorial staff of The Bookends Review, he is drinking from glasses that are perpetually half empty and hiding from the sun, which is clearly trying to kill him. Despite being extensively published around the globe, he flies under the radar. Deftly.

Zombie Logic Review Returns With Poetry By Rob Plath

Three poems by Rob Plath. 

stabbing at ghosts

today i want to
take this knife
& nick the universe
in the heart

but its heart is
made of nothingness

so i sit here
w/my pain
& unused blade



take yr best swing, motherfuckers

a new troop
of demons arrived
dispatched by
the fucking universe
i guess it thinks
i have more fight
left in me
but if they ever
autopsied my angel
they'd see nothing
just burnt crumbs
but the demons
new & old
do not care
they keep lashing
w/their terrible tails
at a few black morsels
perhaps the strength
i possess is that
there's not much
left to damage


TEAR IT OUT

the
human
skull

on
the
shelf

is
beautiful

b/c
it
contains
no
brain
