Mike Corrao's AVIAN FUNERAL MARCH is a new mythology of abstract and half-formed entities. It reads like breathing a miasma of autoclaved cell cultures, or deadly endospores, the DNA of an ancient, occursed organism awakening inside your mind.
Glyphic, cryptologic, theatrical and incantatory, Corrao's text speaks to the healing power of a sacred automutilation. Deity. Cataract or wave. The undulant and peristalsic form of something that doesnt know what it is yet. Tactile, sensual and organic. Entropic. Liminal. Ritualistic.
Mike Corrao is the author of Man, Oh Man (2018), Gut Text (2019), and Two Novels (2019). His work has been featured in publications such as 3:AM, Always Crashing, Collagist, and The Portland Review. He lives in Minneapolis.
