Reject Convention: Paul Koniecki

6X9 Glossy Cover Finish

58 pgs of b&w poetry

edited by: Frankie Metro/Gabriel Ricard

cover art/design by: Frankie Metro/Sam Tsohonis

Paul Koniecki’s poems probe deep into the cosmic darkness of memory, prying at the edges of consciousness and meaning, only to dive back into the madcap dance of the minutiae of living–beyond moderation and jam, into the circus and the rotted heart of Joseph Stalin–these poems command your attention, even as their subjects apologize that asking was necessary in the first place. As Koniecki himself says, “this is all there is.”

Clouds of Hungry Dogs: Gabriel Ricard

72 pgs.

Matte Finish cover
Edited/Cover art by:
Frankie Metro & Sam Tsohonis

Gabriel Ricard’s Clouds of Hungry Dogs is an ontological color wheel dictating the garish narrative through the ambivalent barriers between Midwest & rural East America. Poems like Lovely Janice & Resting On A Flat Universe serve like canon as compass, or the brunt side of every sucker punch/bad joke.

A.P.C.: FRANKIE METRO

110 pages of full color artwork & poetry/haibuns.

edited by: Dustin Holland

cover art/interior illustrations by: Frankie Metro

back cover art by: Nick Holland

A.P.C. is not so much a collection of poems as it is a nostalgic tribute to photographic memory and demonology. Frankie Metro presents a renovation of the lysergic psyche, utilizing the symbolism of murdering egotistical zen robots, and resurrecting their method acting careers with a holographic quality that rivals Albert Hoffman high on the back of a knife wielding unicorn.

Captain Head: Dusin Holland
37+ Pages of poetry & illustrations. [Infra]realism at its finest!

cover by: Nick Holland
illustrations by: Frankie Metro
author photo by: Jake Rowinski
edited by: Dustin Holland w/ Frankie Metro & Bud Smith
Capt Head is a filigree of arsonists with direction, heroes of the pyre, and the refurbished legend of those who came before him. Not lacking in its allusions to the boundaries between captioned calamity and the unflinching attention to metaphysical detail, Dustin Holland’s Captain Head breaks the skin with similes about sickdays, chessboxing, and full-on, characterized delusion.

We love The Mercury Café! A little more than 2 years ago we threw a reading for what was then a relatively virgin venture, no puns intended, and exceeded seating capacity in the little room with...
