Justice

The devil trains mother
To train her troubled son
To use a semiautomatic rifle
And he shoots her first

In the face before he opens
Fire on the elementary school.
(Father and brother spared,
Having long since fled the dirtied

Nest.) In his memoirs, the devil cites
As one of his greatest achievements
The introduction of war weapons
As recreational toys in broken

Suburban households.  That,
And the deprivation of the
Rights of a six-year-old
To advance to the second grade.

Chicklets Broadside

Chicklets Broadside

I’ve mentioned that my Literary Publishing class last semester had to follow through with journal concept, which included a literary postcard, a broadside, and the journal itself. Earlier I posted the Chicklets postcard. Here’s the broadside, with text from a story by Natalie Upchurch, also a member of the class.
