You're the dappled world, brilliant toxin. a choate reprieve. Hair, a triptych of flax and rippled sheaf at break of day. You bear your assiduousness cleanly, your sharpened jaw, your forehead, those enamel cliffs. A ruminant has strewed you thus, over the paper weirs, over the torn lip of the world, its heft of blood. sleet in-the-voice touch. My engrossment, a kitten in snow. beyond ode.

BY LISA MARIE BASILE Or just shoot them 10 bucks and get another cocktail. Luna readers, today is the last day of VIDA's campaign. They're raised $10,000 so far – which will go toward their count, events, fellowships, and publications. As editor of Luna Luna Magazine, and as a writer / editor for national and indie magazines, I - like many of you - got my start in literary magazines. I won't sugar-coat it: there are a lot of sm...

This "return of the repressed" continues, as Deanie self-destructs in more and more glamorous ways, eventually wading into a pond decked out in a gorgeous red flapper dress and swimming towards the edge of a waterfall.

BY LISA MARIE BASILE I flew out of New York and into New Orleans on Friday the 13th once a few years ago. It was for a quick trip - a weekend glossed in debauchery and purposefully-chosen haunted hotel rooms with elaborate millwork, and walking vampire tours -- the kind of trip where you get drunk in an "absinthe" bar and flee down the street without paying your tab. You run past a junk shop with pornographic picture books, you stand...

One can change their drive. One can become resilient. But one doesn’t need to pay Sarah Prout to do so.

BY PAIGE TOWERS “Wow, you look delicious,” he says. It’s the first warm day of March and I’m standing on a busy corner, waiting for the light to change. I’m going home after a doctor’s appointment on the Upper East Side—walking north up 2nd Ave. The stranger who called me “delicious” is now directly beside me looking me up and down. I don’t turn to look at him but I can see him in my peripheral vision; he’s white, middle aged, wea...

BY LISA MARIE BASILE We have no right words here, but we know we want to help. We're filled with anger, sadness and – instead of what should be shock – exhaustion. We stand as allies. It's hard to watch our friends hurting, watch people sobbing in videos, watching bodies dying. It's hard to watch people (our families or friends sometimes!) post things like #AllLivesMatter. It's hard to see white people staying quiet. It doesn't...

The girl as creature, her wings the silk of kimono sleeves, Madame Butterfly is destined to die like an exotic specimen tacked to the wall when the white man first discovers her and then abandons her.

Check out the exclusive cover reveal of Lucky Bastard Press' HYSTERIA anthology + enter to win a copy & bonus swag. BY LISA MARIE BASILE As both editor of Luna Luna and a contributor to Hysteria (an anthology of writing by female and nonbinary writers about their biology and anatomy and experiences with the body) I thought doing a reveal of their cover would be a great way to create a dialogue about this amazing collection of works...

BY LISA MARIE BASILE Luna Luna absolutely loves Myths of Creation, an independent retailer of women’s clothing--based in Brooklyn, New York. I have stumbled down Graham drunk on rose on countless occasions only to buy bralettes and holographic tattoos and tanks and chapbooks, swept up by the store’s intimate charm. Myth’s charm is such that when shopping it feels less like you're spending money on stuff and more like ritual, an anoi...

CURATED BY LISA MARIE BASILE Maybe you just got barked at by the lady who sells wooden roses (they're actually pretty, though) on the 2 train? Maybe you still smell like Sunday's last-call bar-bathroom sex. Or maybe you just need a bit of a slow-start morning – something soft, something that at least sort of feels like that dreamy, colorful world you so wish you could inhabit if it weren't for your desk job. Yes? So here's a heady...

Dr. Babb is insanely wonderful. Generous, honest, and actually qualified to talk to you about your ailments. I've been to many doctors who reduced symptoms and who never got to the bottom of it. Not. Dr. Babb. He worked with me for years diagnose, treat and follow-up on my Uveitis. He even called my cell phone to check in when the sickness was as its worst. He does a great job of listening, calming you down and helping you find ways to cut down on the cost of treatments. Honestly, this doctor is really the best. I'm lucky to have him. As a young person with a chronic eye condition, it's great to know someone cares.
