That cup of coffee isn’t going to get you to 5:00, friend. Get an extra jolt from our fourteenth (!) issue, where you’ll find electric first lines like these:
"Crickets swarm from your mouth, chirping a twilight lullaby of American-made longing and regret."
"If only the entirety of the world / was the circumference of this neck."
"You jet down the coast in that Chrysler of yours carrying a storm."
Ghost Ocean 14 is gem-rich with new work from Joshua Ware, Duncan Campbell, C.J. Opperthauser, Jennifer Roche, Mark Magoon, Courtney Flerlage, Melanie Abrams, and Matt Broaddus, with two reviews previously featured on the blog by Anthony Marvullo and C.J. Opperthauser, and a shiny new review of Joshua Young’s THE HOLY GHOST PEOPLE by Timothy Moore (which you may have caught a glimpse of if you’re an early riser). As always, we’ve a nice little audio supplement to the issue on our SoundCloud, too. Enjoy!
