The Dancing Rose, a glossy-covered zine published by Full Moon Press out of Honolulu, featured poems by Judith D. Harris, Dominique Finley, zine editor David D. Baker plus favorite classic poems by Walt Whitman and Robert Louis Stevenson. My poem The Art of Sin was also included.
This zine was based out of San Francisco & contained harrowing yet hilarious tales of life in minimum wage land.Convenience store clerks, Christmas help, janitors, temp office workers, security guards and mail sorters related their experiences in this entertaining mag. My article about working in a Bourbon Street souvenir shop was originally published in this zine. (Sorry about the coffee stain on the cover, it wasn't part of the original zine.) I wonder if McDonalds ever took umbrage at the mag's name.
