The Satire Lounge is a guide to the underbelly of the writing world, lit by a lone “laptop’s screenlight glint” and fed by “Mike’s Fine Sardines.” Here, “Thought Police” patrol “high-speed poetry,” while cowpies take over haiku. A “PhD Candidate Contemplates His Future” in a world where only old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons can remind us of…what was it? Oh yes, those open “miles and miles / of miles and miles” we used to call poetry.
