Dustin Holland Reviews Steven Dunn’s POTTED MEAT

When Steven Dunn reads excerpts from POTTED MEAT(Taurpaulin Sky 2016) at events, it's easy to forget that you’re listening to pieces of a novel. Each of his selections manages to stand on its own as a powerful moment taking place in an established, well developed universe. In fact, when he’s reading, it's hard to imagine …

“Open your Heart at the Open-Heart Mic” by Urwill Rocks!

Deep cuts and gouges spiral in etching on massive stone doors. A huge glass sun rises high up above, reflecting a fiery of flames. And a slow incline of steps lead the truth-seeking wanderers to none other than the Unity Spiritual Center of Boulder. This Friday night, April 8th the young adults of Unity (“Next Generation”) …

“John Carpenter’s ‘The Skyline House” starring Eric R Fischman

“Punk-Rock Poetry House Party” by Urwill Rocks!

  The ink splattered tie-dye and oblong, circle cow-print patterned, helium balloons loitered peacefully suspended, and scattered overhead in the living-room of this one-story duplex rental just east of CU campus: the Skyline House. Each of the tens of dozens of multicolored balloons had their lips tied tight with thin ribbons, loose and curled, hanging …

“20,000 Leagues Under Longmont” by Professor Pierre M. Arronax

  Paintings coated the walls depicting celebrities and statesmen of all eras in unusual and potentially compromising positions (was this some kind of time travel cult?). Around one year and a half ago, I received a cryptic message from a mysterious and vaporous personage. The message read, "If you ever wish to see your precious …

“Reed Bye, The Buddha of Boulder Poetry” by Jonathan Montgomery

One day my girlfriend and I were walking around Pearl Street and decided to stop in one of those Tibetan gift stores, the ones with all the incensey smells and colorful tapestries and holy, golden figurines. We were casually looking for something that might empower us in the more non-Tibetan gift store realities of our …
