i. 

The ocean is far,

a toppled freighter

tilts in the Los Angeles port

with bobbing toys

and plastic doll heads.

 

ii.

People of Los Angeles,

pray not to crash

into the Pacific’s murk.

 

iii.

We have passed The Age of indium.

Of europium. Of dysprosium. Of lanthanum.

 

The Age of neodymium is in its dying stage.

 

iv.

When I woke up

in my Age

my wrist itched,

so I scratched it, and little

gigabytes fled,

crawling to my other skin.

 

As they scampered, they left

traces of electrical firing

and sparks behind.

So now, a little update

Unthinkable Creatures is a little side project, and I’ve been busy with life the last few months, which is why I haven’t published anything recently. Thanks for your patience and for continuing to read, send submissions, and support the small press community in the meantime.

Later this summer or early this fall we’ll publish Trash by Adam Crittenden. Excited to put out these weird and clever poems about disposability and accumulation. 

Next weekend I’ll be doing a small second print run of quiet in the body by caelan tree. pre-order by friday if you want a copy. 

i also made a small set of three instant-book zines, also available on the unthinkable creatures etsy.

happy summer, readers and friends!

Topside Press: autumn's KEEP MAD LYNN ALIVE fundraiser (in which a disabled queer trans woman asks for money AGAIN)

mad-lynn:

I’m reblogging this because hey: I just got out of another 24 hours in the emergency room followed by 7 days of the worst care I’ve ever received in a psychiatric institution. More hospital bills, more time off work, more community support needed. Please consider reading this again. Please consider reblogging for support. Please consider donating something (anything) to a queer in a lot of need right now (in exchange for some really neat ‘zines, short stories and never-before-seen material from yours truly - your favorite writer (mentally-ill transgender, midwest category).

mad-lynn:

Hey. Please read this. PLEASE SHARE PLEASE PLEASE REBLOG.
Hi. My name’s Madison Lynn. I’m a queer trans lady who lives in Detroit and writes short fiction, monologues and poetry. You may have read my short story “Stones Stand Still” featured in Topside Press’ The Collection or…

'cause y'know, solidarity or whatever.

Madison is a great friend of unthinkable creatures, consider helping her out in exchange for some of her brilliant texts

HEY HEY
if you want this beautiful book please pre-order it by the end of tomorrow; i need to know how many so i can start making &#8216;em
unthinkablecreatures:

 
Each month the moon wanes, shines blue.
The tip of a fingernail dug into the sky could
tarnish sanity, change reflections, freeze my blood.
Winter arrives, bringing its attendant fears and cold.
Together, inside, even beneath blankets we shake
for fear the fire will extinguish. Your fingers brush
my knee and every sound stops. From my face I shoo
all signs of distress. This season is long but spring breaks
soon. We will no longer require one another at night.
Before the flame you slip each finger slowly from a glove.
Your face shines in the kitchen, a false mask of delight.
I stay in our bed. Pray to the one hovering above.
To welcome our Savior back from the cross, you bake a cake.
 Beside you in the church pew, I memorize this ache
—from nostrums: a handbook of the unborn  
(now available for pre-order!)
