Abraham Lincoln 8 [SOLD OUT]


issue the eighth
winter 2014
54 pp.
$5 + $1.00 s&h

It's been a long long while, as old Abe has been spending a lot of time hanging out under the bleachers smoking dirtweed with the dirtheads and planning the debut of his death metal band Churchyard Maggot at that pizza parlor in that strip mall near that other strip mall with the dog grooming place. But we're back, and we've got some good shit for you. Check out this tasty baggie full of weird purple business. You can afford it, because you just got paid for sort of fixing your dad's fence.

Michael Nicoloff & Alli Warren, Eunoia [SOLD OUT]

Together again for the first time since Bruised Dick: Michael Nicoloff and Alli Warren bring the hot poetry action with Eunoia, new from Abraham Lincoln Press!

Using only the twenty-six letters of the Roman alphabet (and a few Arabic numerals and assorted punctuation marks), Warren and Nicoloff have created in Eunoia sixteen poems of a certain number of letters each that when read by English-speaking readers can be experienced as a series of intelligible or semi-intelligible words, phrases, lines, and sentences referring or seeming to refer to various things.

I Have to Itch His Subaru

for Erika Staiti

I've got this ukulele
in a plastic bag
I'm saving it for the clungheads
and spoadies and I hope
this brave decision will be followed
by others Now yell at the sandwich
with the consistent narrative voice
your mama gave you
Sandwich, how'd you get in them jeans?
by failing to signal while holding
hands in the time of the Perseids
with the weird dude who owns
those cabins the dude who invented
coinage What a clown!
clogging the sidewalks of the republic
I remember when this bar was a horsehair
love mat or another man's noodles
what did you do to it
I harumphed
I missiled I'm sorry
I was high
and I totally bricked it

Later, awkwarder, stickier, and number-sixier than ever before, the new issue of Abraham Lincoln wants desperately to be held tight to your heaving thoraxes (thoraces?) as you get so excited by the poems it contains that you gnaw the staples out WITH YOUR TEETH and commence slobbering at the moon. Can you afford NOT to throw away your hard-earned shekels on this splendid rag?

K. Silem Mohammad, Crush [SOLD OUT]

$5 (includes s&h)


I've become better with my money
I never seem to have any
today I departed for London yesterday
that's about it for yesterday

I was sad that I lost my backpack
with my camera and my money in it
it pretty much sucked
on the camera/profit front

older, chillax-ier sea turtles are getting all my money
because it's such a good environment
there is a video on YouTube
of lions attacking a giraffe

if you want to view any of these things let me know
PayPal will keep my money
