Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Dragnet poetry editor Suzannah Showler’s debut poetry collection with ECW Press has a cover!
Care for some experimental Miley Cyrus fan fiction?
"…And so I declare that Destiny Hope Cyrus is answered hope, the answered hope of a modern America: a nation of willing, striving, and gaining; of proud immigrants running millions of blunt needles through department store linens, raking through the sodden shit of dog parks, scrubbing bleach against porcelain urinals stained in the daily rub of living.”
Three years ago was a very different time for Miley Cyrus. Everything was just a party in the USA. It was then that Joyland published Transcript: Appeal of the Sentence by Spencer Gordon. It’s a single sentence monologue that is also a disturbing unraveling of the barely-legal pop industry. Transcript is now available in Spencer’s debut collection, Cosmos and back on Joyland’s frontpage because, you know, Miley has deranged America’s online psyche, much like the narrator of Spencer’s piece. Read the rest here.

I almost lost everything yesterday. The road trip. The interviews in the south of France. The sunny days on the side of a road, searching for love and meaning and a good story to tell. All of it nearly vanished in a heart beat – all because I never learned how to drive stick.
Woke up, had breakfast, shared a tender moment with a little pigeon in the kitchen windowsill who’d become my friend, before heading out to pick up the rental car. I strolled in the morning sun, oblivious to the oncoming crisis, checking out a castle and enjoying the scenery.
After a few minutes in line at the rental place, the good man brought me to my car – and I was pleased to see my little Renault, named Gulliver, had been swapped for a tiny little VW Up!. Stellar news considering Fafner – the great hero of these highways – and his Volkswagon heritage.
The clerk made the customary exterior tour, marking the dents and scratches, then brought me inside, with me seated in driver, him in passenger. As he’s showing me the knobs and dials, the mirrors, all that stuff, a dark feeling started to come over me, and his words weren’t hitting me. Something was wrong. My body knew it before my mind did. There are three pedals in this car. An “H” shape on the stick. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
