Come Hither . . .

Midnight Lane Boutique publishes street poetry, drug-addled poetry, dark confessional poetry, and whatever else might fit the site’s vibe. Perhaps, you’d like to do a little wheelin’ ‘n’ dealin’ here at the boutique, but wonder what’s in it for you. Well, please scroll down to learn more . . .

“The Dangers of Smoking,” by Yours Truly, 2014.

Now Featuring: This page is where accepted work is featured, one poet at a time. Please, be sure to check out the boutique’s current feature, Joan Colby.

Entre Nous: Not nearly as sexy as it sounds, this is the dreaded submission guidelines. While submitting work to Midnight Lane Boutique is easy, it is still asked you closely read this whole page and understand the terms of our little agreement.

BAD ACID LABORATORIES, INC: Beginning December 24, 2016, all poetry accepted for publication at Midnight Lane Boutique will also be eligible for possible republication at BAD ACID LABORATORIES, INC., a sister-site of the boutique.

24 Hour Pharmacy: Got a prescription other pharmacies can’t fill? Well, the boo-tay might have just what the doctor ordered.

Please, click on any of the orange-colored page headings above to explore Midnight Lane Boutique. Thank you for your interest.
