Poetry. Introduction by Michael Magee. GOD'S LIVESTOCK POLICY is Stan Apps's self-ordained "mini-Bible—sort of a commentary on the real Bible." Employing satire as incisive as that which one might find in e.e. cummings and The New Republic, Apps's poems problematize God, configuring the deity as a grasping extension of Man's urge for sovereignty, a populist construct by which we are roped, doped, and branded. Heaven here is a bureaucratic machine, earth a lamentable mistake, and humans the lowing livestock. GOD'S LIVESTOCK POLICY is published as part of the Trench Art Parapet series. With visual art by Danielle Adair.
