A comic by Mike Allen

Who needs Pythagoras, Plato or Eratosthenes when rapper B.o.B. has 2.3 million Twitter followers and hairbrained rationale for promoting Flat Earthism as a worldview?

Poems by Gary Reddin

In the summer
by Gary Reddin

When you were twelve
we found God
in the access tunnels
beneath the mall
Graffiti fading on the
piss stained wall

A normal cat, on an abnormal day
by Gary Reddin

The great green sun,
burning plasma in the sky,
casts our shadows into forever.
Today will not be normal.
Not like yesterday
when the sky broke blue
and you still smelled
of daffodils.
when the ghosts
of dead civilizations
did not haunt the streets of Denver
seeking audience with the Pope.
Except of course
for the cat,
who snakes around our legs
and begs for food,
only to turn her nose away
in disgust.
Now, if only
we could say the same
for the dog.
