EXCERPT:

HUM < W > ME

her main reaction is blank bovine stare.
Hera knows where the $$ comes from. to give
her some idea of the landscape it’s porcine
February and the biscuits ain’t risin’

HUM < W > ME

down bondage and braille

HUM < W > ME

down pink plastic selfies and sluts.
the fogwitch goes in and out. in and out.
Hera’s left defrosting the ladder

HUM < W > ME

there’s another string of fur at her throat

HUM < W > ME

the fogwitch knows where the Dr. keeps
his other. under the matte black slacks
and filled to the brim with coca-cola

HUM < W > ME

Hera wonders did she eat the animal beneath
the fur. her lips and fingers are blue. she leaves
prints on the satin documentation. she leaves
prints where no one will find ’em

HUM < W > ME

corporate

HUM < W > ME

Syria

HUM < W > ME

and quit smoking. freedom is yours

HUM < W > ME

the Dr. ain’t in but he sure ain’t out.
the waves are on repeat today

HUM < W > ME

Hera won’t come down

HUM < W > ME

wild anti-pilgrims snapchat the streets

HUM < W > ME

it’s media day at the ashram

HUM < W > ME

the future is coming into focus. the sentiment
is not new and neither are the Hitler references.
the headline reads: Hera Sheds Curfew
(comma) Realizes Capital Gains

HUM < W > ME

in like a lion

HUM < W > ME

out like a lesbian

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Mel Coyle is from Chicago and other places where the corn grows. Currently, she lives in New Orleans where she coedits TENDE RLOIN, an online poetry gallery and hosts ColdCuts, the reading series. You can find some of her work online.

Jenn Marie Nunes is the author of four chapbooks, including Object Reference Not Set to an Instance of Object from dancing girl press. Her work appears most recently in Similar:Peaks::, Tupelo Quarterly, Smoking Glue Gun, and Southeast Fiction, and she is coeditor of TENDE RLOIN, an online gallery for poetry. Her first full-length collection, selected by Switchback Books as the winner of their first-ever Queer Voices Award, is forthcoming.

HYMN: An Ovulution is the second chapbook in the 2015 series from Bloof Books. Each chapbook in the series is released in a limited edition of one hundred numbered copies, followed by a digital release, and a year-end combination volume called Bound. The design concept was based on an idea by the authors, a pink-and-gold mashup of a prayer book or hymnal plus pocket-sized manifesto pamphlets. Hera and a thoroughly modern uterus assist.
