note from editor:

"Divination" by Helen Vitoria

Seeing as Phantom Kangaroo has published almost 200 poems, I think it’s time I streamline the site. I’ve done away with the line index for issue no. 15 and, — in the next couple months, — I hope to create category links for poems, so that PK is easier to navigate. Also, contributor bios are now published on the same page as their respective poems. 


With that said, this issue of Phantom Kangaroo includes dead girls, foreign horoscopes, witch-inspired rhymes and an alien car collision. Enjoy!
