Proclamations, dripping from the dark and the stars,
three-dimensional tri-color assertions of "The World's Biggest
Asshole," and "Now the voice
of Jesus will demolish some glass."
To catch the assignment you've been hoping for.
And glide beyond the frame.
While others wait for the cleansing rain,
or look out
for the odd cow
struck dead by the hail stone.
Adam Phillips makes his living teaching at-risk junior high kids how to read, write, and dominate on the hardwood (these are three separate things; the kids rarely read or write while playing basketball). When not thusly occupied, he's f**king s**t up old school on the coastline of Rockaway Beach, Oregon, with his inimitable wife and two small sons. If you're interested, recent/impending publications include upstreet, Blotterature, Shark Pack Poetry Review, Raven Chronicles, and Blue Monday Review. His first novel is forthcoming from Propertius Press.
