CGP 21: Megton Gasgan Krakooom
by Paolo Javier  (42 pp. Saddle-Stitched w/B&W illus.) $8 ppd.

We deserve our monsters.  We are our monsters.  In Megton Gasgan Krakooom, Queens Poet Laureate Paolo Javier opens the box of the id and the planchette goes ballistic.  Janus is both Jeckyl and Hyde and speaks with two mouths.  Javier is a mutant toreador, daring the minotaur with verboten speech.  Feed the Gorgon and you’ll notice you’re the one in the cage.  With cryptozoologic fieldwork by Ernest Concepcion.

Love as a maximum ablution
No tenements. L’amourat sea
                       unwrit a diver riddle
a diver riddle fraction lyric animé
somber, frisky, fed supplicant chose sequence
Sarajevo’s era recalled
            Will fucking among stranger armadas question the equation
taunt port of entry for adored id dulcinea
ocular riddles pattern importune
lair Im in rattled at two
hail circuitry!
between grand echelon laid open port west of entry
            border to border borders sold in glove
color of rose averred, intoxicated envy at scenic rate
sex lead lantern
to know crescendo in summit question colloquy
            lair Im rattled into
rigorous voyage a picador Jihad
in total tyranny, carnage, sullied ladle deicide
what murder they’llsecond next
                                                            all gold in us
            despair, anxiety, plain entry
                        Saddam for Sunni ranks satyrs
magnificent diaspora of Amazons to heed us
I comfort Eros, buttons intact
lost seismic nautilus
o diem italic dads Ive bitten
                        I brag!
              o Oracle ruins
my entire sustenance induce coma all experience
all gold in us, sanguine, solar, terrible entry synapse appear
I compare a supplicant
murder, grave, pulsating
sub-prime synod atlas serbis soiled I
             assume redundant agave tan
Etreus destiny Aquinas in lessons
pigeons in the circle sojourn kneeling
Christian aspersion aspersion simpering
