Great issue! I really enjoyed De Silva’s poem and Kennard’s story, particularly the end of both. I liked the image of cockroaches climbing the walls at the end and the whole theme of art versus criticism. Kennard’s story had a musical rhythm to it that I liked, and I liked the crazy ‘Klimax’ at the end, even though I’m not quite sure what to make of it’s meaning. Glad I checked out the mag!
^I agree; I really enjoyed De Silva’s poem, as well. The imagery of the cockroaches climbing the walls was particularly haunting. Beautiful.
Kennard’s story was short but sweet. It’s post-modern in a way that’s not post-modern, call it post-post-modern, seasoned with a pinch of absurdist.
Kennard’s story Customer Service really appealed to me. His dark edgy humor really draws a reader in. And with a character name like Klimax, the ending was twisted perfection.
