A poetry zine by Rev. Thomas L. Foote. I’m not much for poetry, so I gave the zine some side-eye before I read it. (And while I read it, too, as it turns out.) Sometimes I don’t know if someone is taking artistic liberty with language and spelling things wrong on purpose, or if they’re making a statement, or if they just ain’t good at spellin’. I am happy to say that a few of the three-line haiku type poems were all right and the art that framed the poetry was generally cool. The highlight for me was the back cover, which shows a woman using a selfie stick in front of a mushroom cloud. –Cheyenne Neckmonster (PO Box 6023, Chattanooga, TN 37401)
