Genius in a Bottle

Four-Billion-Year Tantrum

A poem

Stomps rattle the stairs
in an adolescent huff.

Grounded, for the rest of your natural born life!

For coming home too late again on a Saturday night
and then sneaking out the window
for more booze and revelry.




We publish stories, articles, and poetry that are edgy, even uncomfortable to read, that stimulate the heart, mind, and occasionally the colon.
