A Literary Magazine


We want to see your flasks of dirt, whatever form they may take: poetry, prose, ramblings, tracts, confessions, actual flasks of dirt*, smut, &c. We are especially interested in works that resist definition and stray beyond traditional formats. Don’t be afraid to send in that sound poem or that it’s-not-a-prose-poem-but-it-ain’t-prose-and-it-ain’t-poetry-either.

In short: experimental? Great! Does dirty things with language? Even better! We want to see your flasks, to caress them, and to be repulsed by them.

We like medical history, driftwood, negative queer theory, and street fires, to give you an idea.
