Journal Dead Flowers: A Poetry Rag

Bohemian Pupil Press' Poetry Rag takes its name from the Rolling Stones’ song on the 1971 album Sticky Fingers. This song is emblamatic of a quintessential irreverance: it portrays a most elegant “Fuck You.” Please, do not interpret this as meaning that Dead Flowers is a platform for sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. Dead Flowers is an extension of Bohemian Pupil Press’ tagline and motive: “Publishing for the Clear-Sighted Imbiber.” Please visit our About This Rag page to discover more.

Journal Defunct

Our far-flung contributors have interpreted “defunctness” in their own often idiosyncratic ways and have brought back the dead, salvaged the past, revealed their obsessions as writers do. We’re looking for reviews of everything that has had its day: defunct technologies, theories, fads, foods, religions, civilizations, etiquette, customs, slang, assumptions, or even things we wish would become defunct. Imagine a review of the Aztecs. Or a review of the Dodo. Or a review of the Eight Track Player.
