Illuminati Girl Gang Vol. 2
Baby Marie-Antoinette emits elegant eeks for the Illuminati Girl Gang. If Baby Marie-Antoinette possessed a girl gang then maybe the Third Estate (i.e. Obama supporters) wouldn’t cut her head off. But Baby Marie-Antoinette wont have her own girl gang, so the Third Estate (i.e. Obama supporters) will, one day, cut her head off.
Recently, while a weird old man breathed nosily and blew his nose disgustingly, Baby Marie-Antoinette’s mommy, Empress Maria Theresa, read her the second issue of IGG.
Cassandra de Alba did an erasure poem of one of the Babysitter’s Club books. Baby Marie-Antoinette retained remarkable reservations about erasing parts of the BSC. “The BSC is so splendid,” says Baby Marie-Antoinette. “Why erase any of it?” But Baby Marie-Antoinette’s consternation was calmed because Cassandra made a tasty and stylish poem out of the text with mentions of candy and plastic rings.
xTx’s prose was sort of too sexual for Baby Marie-Antoinette’s tastes. There were dildos and balls. But the conclusion was commendable since xTx invites a bear to live with her, and Winnie-the-Pooh is a bear, and Winnie-the-Pooh is sweet and considerate (unlike the Third Estate).
The second volume featured artwork by Emma Dajska. Baby Marie-Anotinette admired the one with strawberries, since strawberry sorbet is downright delicious, not to mention smooth.
In Mira Gonzalez’s poem the earth is grey and sad and there’s a thunder storm as well. This poem was depressing, which Baby Marie-Antoinette likes. She’s depressed too: living in a world with first ladies instead of queens is not lovely.
Sarah San’s tummy is encouragingly depressing as well. It’s also glamorous: confetti comes out of her tummy.
In Roxanne Gay’s short story there’s a husband with “perfect teeth.” Baby Marie-Antoinette hates this husband. She doesn’t like perfect teeth. Baby Marie-Antoinette likes bad teeth, since bad teeth are a sign of interacting with pink cakes and strawberry ice cream. Baby Marie-Antoinette would probably get along better with Roxanne’s narrator, who has braces.
Carolyn DeCarlo’s poems about visiting Coney Island made Baby Marie-Antoinette nostalgic for a fabulous film starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.
