“I Ask the Netherworld if Lizzie Borden Did It & This is What it Says” – Poetry by Kailey Tedesco

Our Winter 2018 issue, FLAPPERHOUSE #16, won’t fly until December 21,  but today we’re offering a peek at the dark, magical, experimental weirdness we have up our robe-sleeves with Kailey Tedesco‘s poem “I Ask the Netherworld if Lizzie Borden Did It & This is What it Says.” If your interest is sufficiently piqued, you may pre-order a digital (PDF) copy of FLAPPERHOUSE #16 for $3US through PayPal & see it fly into your emailbox by the Solstice. (Print copies available soon for $6US via Amazon & CreateSpace.)

II. Tarot: (Eight of Wands)

This can refer to swiftly
unfolding events whether
unintentional
or intentional (tarot.com). Just see
those staffs through the kitchen sink
or a little bit of
coffee. Things are not okay,
but it’s not too much
for you to eat.

III. iOS X Predictive:

Lizzie Borden hurt my face
and now I feel better.

I think it’s a bad thing
but that’s what happened last night

so I’m going to call her tomorrow.

Face the way of your life
and then
I’ll be there.

What a Wonderful Time to SUBSCRIBE!

Do you have any idea how great of a time it is to subscribe to FLAPPERHOUSE right now? Next week our Fall 2017 issue flies, and boy, is it a monster…the kind of monster that will scare the pants off you at first, but then once you get closer & get to know it you’ll realize that deep down this monster simply needs to be loved, just like everybody else. And while our Winter 2018 issue won’t fly for over 3 months, it’s already got some brain-tingling mind games & other scintillating surreality hidden in its attic, waiting to be unwrapped for the holiday season…

So if one were to subscribe to FLAPPERHOUSE at this time, one would be treating oneself to a cornucopia of marvelous literary weirdness for the rest of 2017, as well as helping ensure that we can continue our pursuit of flappiness well into 2018…
