Moon Howl: Open Call Poetry Folio

For Lemon Hound 3.0.1’s first Open Call, we received hundreds of incredible submissions. After two years of hiatus, it’s no surprise that we returned to a poetry community that was vibrant, dynamic, topical, and biting; what was a beautiful surprise was that that same  community remembered us just as fondly.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, PLEASE HANG UP Mangos are the ripest weapons on hand. You ask me what I’ve wanted the longest and I say a mate whose jugular I couldn’t burst. Going everywhere in a transparent blouse only to see where visitors would leave their signature. The sky is entrailed with fireworks. A hobo...

////////\///////// In a painting I never drew, an autumn forest awaits discovery under a torrent of tiny strokes, each an impression of my left thumb. The forest, a forest of lefts, every leaf & trunk & shadow & the stream loitering in the middle of the landscape a left, & where a trunk rises into...

Sonnet L’Abbé

LXXIX Googling “white peopling,” I stumbledupon proverbial anchor babies in Urban Dictionary. UD should call me queenpin for I pwn thespian terminology. The attitude my verse asdfghjkls is sonetic: phonetics and virtual worlds’ porn aesthetics alloyed in a gentle sonnet’s grace—in a butterrace’s kinetic, vowelful, embodying phrase.

APPLICATION FOR CANONIZATION   I hereby request to be canonized in the Holy Church of Love. A man swore eternal love, but his love was hell on earth. I have more stigmata on my body than those required by your Church, greater tears than those expressed in cubic centimeters by any of the aspirants to...
