ABQ Zine Fest year eight with Lawrence Lindell and many others
“It's the perfect medium,” artist, musician and educator Lawrence Lindell said over the phone from Oakland, Calif., where he had just returned home after participating in Maryland's Small Press Expo. “There's a wide range of what you can do with zines, you can experiment without too much pressure.” And Lindell himself has used the medium for many years to explore topics that relate to identity, mental health, accessibility and representation—primarily through his comics.
The Monday Poem: Howl 2018
I saw the worst men of my generation waving their small limp dicks at the flag
high on money and war, the logic and bitter drivel of their solipsist words.
Bury yourself in chenille throws and wool blankets children, it's time to hide.
Drag yourself through asphalt rush hour panoply of cars not listening to NPR.
In Baltimore, ODs and homicide erupt. In Washington, Senators masturbate.
I miss my old Underwood. It sits in a Colorado cabin and mice live there now.
I could stab and whack and tap tap tap the plutocrat's names in jazzy red ink.
Stretch that ribbon! Strike the keys, bash the return bar into place, ring the bell!
The Cold War's simplistic tropes no match for demon-memes of demagogues.
