PLEASE PARDON OUR APPEARANCE WHILE REMODELING

February 23, 2011

by Joe Yoga

okay

the building that I work at is a tough scene for me
it’s four floors of lawyers
three floors of insurance people
and way too many conversations
about the weather
for me to feel like it’s worth hiding the hangover
unlike the rest of them.

the building I work at is building a new set of back stairs
and I’m temping there for the lawyers
they occupy the top four floors
because the farther you are from
the front door the more important you are
so they say
some of them actually wear bowties
and you can imagine the secretaries

yeah

there’s going to be a big golden sphere there
there’s corporate art for you
the wood planks and the trucks and the construction are beautiful
but still there’s that sign

I see it.
but if they haven’t fired me by now, they won’t ever

Editor’s Ramblings

New Look, Same Magazine

In the immortal words of the Brady kids:

When it's time to change, then it’s time to change
Don't fight the tide, come along for the ride, don't you see
When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange
Who you are into what you're gonna be

With the help of writer and webmaster Ian Shane, we have given ourselves a makeover. It was surprisingly easy and relatively painless. On the inside, we are still the same magazine. On the outside, we are slightly more fabulous.

Praxis takes pride in featuring established and up-and-coming writers. We are always looking for new material and fresh voices. Check out our submission guidelines to get an idea of the kind of work we are looking for, and peruse our stories to get a feel for what we like.

We update our content regularly, so read voraciously and check back often.

Cheers!

Andie Ryan
Editor
