Coal by Lannie Stabile

On fascist

and fancy

On cancerous vixen 

On sobbing

and stupid

On donned crucifixion

Mirthful, plump depravity 

Rosy, unguarded veins

Bearded in pasty duplicity

Slay full of presence

How do you visit so many in one night?

Lannie Stabile, a Detroiter, likens the process of creative writing to spanking ketchup:  grueling, but necessary. Works can be found, or are forthcoming, in The Hellebore, Rose Quartz Journal, Cauldron Anthology, Monstering, and more. She is penning a novel and chapbook, and recently became Contributing Editor of Barren Magazine.
