IT’S ALIVE

Baby Lawn Literature Issue 2! Being the October issue, it’s filled with spooky pictures, all part of the public domain. More importantly, there is poetry by John Grey, Donal Mahoney, and Peter A. Wolf. Prose: P.D. Mallamo.

We at BLL want to express our unutterable gratitude to this month’s contributors.

You may notice this issue is a different format. We call it an improvement. Yes, we have bit of money now, so we went out and got Publisher.

Ain’t it pwetty now?

New and improved. We just keep getting better, but remember the Tenth of December.

Our plan is, law permitting, to photoshop George Saunders onto the faces of vintage holiday cards. How can you not submit?

You can read and download the latest issue here.

Poetry by Donal Mahoney

Fast Food at Midnight

Donal Mahoney

A drunk comes into McDonald’s

staggers to the counter

is waited on by a young lady

who looks like his wife

years ago when he proposed.

Drunk says nothing, just stares,

mouth agape, until the

manager hustles forward,

sensing a sale

leans over the counter

says to the drunk,

“Want fries with her?”
