Tragedy; Scotty’s phlegm-hocking grandpa
Farce; gauche attempt at high-heeled androgyny,
Drama; gang of us assailed by Marlboro-smoking
Comedy; entire front porch railing collapsed
Coming-of-age; nice Jewish boy watches flaming
Romance; feel of Amy’s head against
Epic; shooting pedestrians w/ water guns,
Documentary;….you just saw it!
Caketrain is a literary journal and press based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our interest is in bringing you, reader, the very best in contemporary creative writing, full stop. Our goals are for each issue of our journal to submerge you in a birthing tank for gelatinous language monsters, young masses of tentacular foci undulating as directed (in all, at once) by our eclectic stable of contributors; for each new book we publish to seduce and ensnare you, sometimes intangibly, always undeniably; and for you, reader, to be able to draw at least one passage from our banks that prods your mind with such precision and power that it feels as if it was written for your eyes alone. To wit and to whet, here is a snippet, a slight nip of our delicious lit mix:
