WALK THE WALK by Kate Mohler

WALK THE WALK by Kate Mohler

I test the bottle by sprinkling my wrist with droplets of formula. Too hot. We get back up and go to the bathroom sink, where I run cold water over the bottle, bringing the temperature down a notch. We return to the bed, where I spread a hand towel over my t-shirt and tiny-wrestle...

EARLY MONEY IN A SMALL TOWN by Kate Mohler

EARLY MONEY IN A SMALL TOWN by Kate Mohler

My first job was plucking gray hairs off my mother’s head, nickel a hair. I was eight. She would sit on the couch and I would stand behind her, picking through her black hair for offenders. I’d find a gray one, pull it out by the roots, and place it in the ashtray she...

PORN FREE by Kate Mohler

They’re so big that I don’t know how Ballsy walks or runs without tripping. I’ve never seen a cat with such a large package; it’s the first thing you notice when you see Ballsy.

SPANKING BEANIE BABY BOY by Kate Mohler

August 21, 2011

He rolled towards me; I rolled away. He pulled me close and wrapped his arms around me; I rested in his embrace but kept my hands open in thwarted high-fives, unwilling to fully relax. I did not want to have sex with a man who collected stuffed animals. Who would?

ALIVE by Kate Mohler

June 13, 2011

My jetlag has subsided to the point where I don’t feel like crawling into bed for a good night’s sleep at noon, and I’m not flipping pancakes and frying sausage at midnight anymore. My circadian rhythm has returned, along with the five pounds it took to reestablish it.

Industrial Disease by Kate Mohler

April 28, 2011

Making sure that the disposal was definitely off, I pushed my hand through the black rubber sleeve hoping that a mangled chicken fetus was not waiting for me in the cruel womb of my sink. Or maybe it was a nuclear sewer roach with a super-tough exoskeleton.

Blood

February 1, 2011

With each spattering of nail holes, I fulfilled cultural myths: women should stay in the kitchen, girls are not good at math. My bedroom looked like it had been machine-gunned by the time I was done. That’s okay—I know how to spackle too. I stepped back to admire my work and noticed a red...

Sneezed To Meet You

January 19, 2011

My sneezes are so loud and spasmodic that even at their beginning, with the first gasps that precede them, my cats dive for cover. The three of us can be enjoying a cozy curl-up in my recliner at night, watching the murder shows on Investigation Discovery, when my pre-sneeze sharp intakes of breath...

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
