Babel Books & Publishing, a subsidiary of Babel/Salvage, presents GLOSSOLOPOLIS NUMBER ONE, an anthology of poetry and other nonsense.
Glossolopolis Number One
"Glossolopolis Number One" is a short book of poetry and nonsense writing that I have written and designed. The next step: printing and distribution. This is where I need your help. Due to sub-par day job employment, debt, rent and other poverty related factors, I cannot afford the printing costs.
My intention is to make Glossolopolis a semi-annual literary journal, though this issue features only my own writing. Included is a short book of poetry titled "XAGY: a land of monsters," an excerpt from a mock-academic essay titled "Against Biology, or, Specter Analysis," and a few other works I had lying around. The intention was to give the issue the feel of an anthology, even if all the work comes from one person.
Here's a little taste of what will be in the book:
The despot and slave-holder
chops off one hair every time he
breathes and holds his breath
when idiots caress his back.
The mathematician waits in silence
for his spine to heal, aided
by the dark glow of the Northern Lights
and the tick-tock of the flame.
The accountant, lost inside the grocery store
banks his fortune on the predictable
tides and camps outside
to see the flocks of geese languor.
