sleepless aside

My poem sleepless aside has now been published in Volume 4 of Foxhole Magazine.

an actor who wears a stuffed toy is called “a stuffed toy”
degradation which goes around pretty appearance is a problem
filling the insides moulded to resemble animals certain

The poem is composed of fragments of a Japanese Wikipedia article on plush toys, translated back and forth several times in order to further warp the semantics. This is likely why it ended up fitting into the Information Issue of the magazine – which is beautiful by the way, the kind of thing you might buy for the cover alone (designed by Matthew Kay, for anyone wondering) only to be delighted that the rest of the magazine matches up.
