Red enameled alligator encases three
cloth sacks of unified survival. Beneath zipper
#1 waits five nickels, bottle of glittered nail
polish, miniature journal, handful of pens, only
one still wearing cap. Skip #2, it is stuck
shut and whatever is in there has been labeled
unnecessary and forgotten. #3 never closes,
most-used, most-important, must remain
accessible, always. Checkbook teeters
against tightly-capped Crazy
Glue, shades sunglasses from potential scuffs
from engraved silver cardholder, coupon folder, ring
of 37 keys, only 3 having known locks or ignitions
to turn. Ringing requires perimeter check. Pockets
bulge, aspirin and birth control semi-hidden
in tightly-snapped front pocket, portable
hard drive and note cards on Roman Architecture
threaten to spill out of left side pouch. Right
must be the never-ending musical bleeping,
incessant blipping of latest high-tech, supposedly
miniaturized, iPhone, trying to pass itself
off as both computer and lifeline when it is really
more crutch and anvil. Last stop, strap with photo
keyring dangling attachment. Favorite snapshot
of herself smiling at the world, makes everyone wonder
who or what was making her laugh that hard.

As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little absent during your recent Weeks and Weekends. For a variety of very succulent reason we have decided to start condensing listings into a monthly version. Why you may ask? Aside from the volunteer nature of the magazine and the busy nature of our volunteers, we feel less is more and also want to give eventers the opportunity to get longer term exposure on the blog. Likewise, we’re looking forward to covering more events throughout the month. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy! Below are some FAQ’s. Anything you don’t see here that you have questions about please don’t hesitate to to contact us at the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com
1) So now that you are switching to monthly, when do I have to submit by?
The last day of the previous month. Through Feb, as we transition, we will give some leniency to submissions deadlines.
2) How do I submit?
Same old way. Send us an email at the22magazine (at) gmail with the subject line “Submission, Event”
3) Does it cost anything?
4) I don’t see my event listed after I submitted it?
We try very hard to view every event we get. Some we like better than others, and we do curate listings. Please do not lose hope though, different month means different rules and you never know when you might be the perfect fit.
5) Can I submit if my event is outside of NY?
You can but currently we only list NY (and sometimes nearby) events.
6) I sent my listing but I did not get a confirmation email?
We don’t do confirmations for listings. Sorry.
7) What are some things I can do to help increase my chances of being listed?
Info, info, info. The more the better. Links to an event page with media and press release are amazing. If it’s a theater piece we LOVE preview videos. If it’s music, we LOVE to hear the actual music. If it’s art, that’s right, PICTURES. If it’s writing, we always like a link where we can read some of the author’s work
8) I’m pissed that I wasn’t listed and I want to write you an angry letter. How can I do that?
Well, first, make sure it’s really angry, cause we don’t read medium angry letters. In fact, if you could set it on fire and leave it on our doorstep all the better. Otherwise, we do actually take complaints seriously and will happily have a chat with you about any problems. Please email the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com Please note, we do sometimes fact check submissions. This is not a personal attack on the event, but simply a professional courtesy to our readers. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to have a chat with us. Again, we’re looking to provide you and the readers an excellent, trustworthy, reading experience.

By David Moody
Lord, forgive all my foxiness. Remember us humans, us cruising
to nightclubs and not braking to dead stop, us stepping—
no hand rail—in black pumps and boot-cuts up to the slut box
then forgetting to dance. Us keeping secrets. Our leaving no tip.
Sometimes in a good fuck I speak carpentry—spackle and jack
tape, Jesus rib, caulk. I awoke this morning naked as a jay bird. Buzzed,
wearing glasses, I held on to no one but my body pillow, Sacagawea,
keeping her warm. Almost a godsend, God, almost.
I confess I want guidance. Guide me to the country of Charity,
that hard-knuckled woman, her deep ankle boots. Can she have red
hair or is black a must? I imagine her hips as I often do hips—chisels
and axes that hack at a crowd thralled to some DJ.
This woman shapes through body’s rhythm her own thrumming
god. Fox beast, incisors, torso warped thing. Its own twisted shape a way
of confessing. To choke without a throat, slowly, on praise.
From what is this thing we have gnawed happiness? How
has it tasted all of our lives? God of Smudged Chins. God of
Half-Virgins. We wedge fingernails into the gaps between backboard screws
and corner beams. With a wonderful quickness we know bed as world.
God, what I’m saying is that I suspect heaven
was planned with a right hand drawing blueprints on napkins,
the left hand still-buried in some idle fur.
Forgive me but nightclubs are like your mouth, like my bedroom
with its ceiling too low. The off-kilter whir of fan blades replace
any belief in collar-starch morals. Forgive the room’s stucco.
Forgive the drunk nothings this tile floor revibes. No,
nothing’s wrong with yesterday’s meats. Sometimes, though, I am
little more than gaps found between words—good and then
morning. A click-click that lingers. I cannot tell if its high heels or teeth.
If I am flea, Lord, and not a fox, I insist one thing: you must bite, hard.

As always submission is 100% free and we are thrilled to meet new amazing people who will always be considered for both the print volume and the blog.
