LORCA 2.0: WRITER-MACHINE INTERFACE

One of the few principles Dumpster Fire Press has (and believe me there are few) is that as counter-culture publisher we are not one to sell out…as is pretty much apparent with the diverse amount of voices we have in our dumpster of talent and I mean that affectionately as everyone who contributes is aContinue reading “LORCA 2.0: WRITER-MACHINE INTERFACE”

VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Samir Karimo

The Creepy Environmentalist I was walking through the dark forest when I saw something creepy: a humanoid tree had relations with the environmentalist Little Red Riding Hood and while they exchanged caresses, the seeded sap fell on the girl’s breasts, leading her to become a carnivorous plant that absorbed the moans of her lycanthropic victimsContinue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Samir Karimo”

VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Kappa Waugh

Benedictus Benedictine in a tiny bottle, tongue in, tongue out, mooning, dreaming, face of the boy who’d borrowed a dollar last week, but won’t speak to her now. She slips her fingers past her waistband, a new face, the man who fingered her five years ago during  that movie The Nun’s Story.  Audrey Hepburn’s faceContinue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Kappa Waugh”

VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Emalisa Rose

The sun steals our shadow. I sent you two poems, penned in the frenzy of midnight and madness; our signatures linked in the marquise’s italics. Turnaround/turnaround. TheContinue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Emalisa Rose”

VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Steven Dee Kish

Bad Friends I flip open my zippo lighter…flick …flick… The orange flame lights my Kent cigarette; the smell of tobacco fills the air. I grab a church key and open a bottle of beer. I’m drowning my sorrows with booze; it soothes my parched throat. Half buzzed; I take a stroll to MY community center.Continue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Steven Dee Kish”

VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Laszlo Aranyi

Circle (translated by Gabor Gyukics)  The furry duck’s crawling on his plate is withered-blue,       satiated, and later had intercourse  with his own daughter.        A villain with a sublime face hangs on the doorknob,       Jesus is taken away by a hoofed cop.                       On a leash, in handcuffs. Sticky cumContinue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Laszlo Aranyi”
