An international online magazine that publishes Surrealist poetry in English.
Moses came struggling down the mountainside
Abraham came slouching down the mountainside
Zarathustra came pregnant down the mountainside
Krishna came on down too, blue, and playing the flute
Jesus came down, minus the devil and in a funk
Inari comes down the mountain, on eight legs, every year
Noah's boat got stuck up there, spilling animalia.
Enkidu came down, drained and knowing,
Zeus sent Hermes down, and the rivers come tricking down,
But the mountains themselves rise up.
