The Frayed Edge of Memory by James Croal Jackson




$8.00 USD
Chapbook (plus Free PDF)

$0.99 USD
E-Book (PDF)
Excerpt
a week ago we soared through the sky
with all parts intact and fully functional.
I didn't need to look out deep, endless windows
we will never have the biology to fly, no matter
our construction, no matter the fantasy of the air-
and the air is a fantasy you breathe easy and pure
descend slowly on telephone lines beyond reach
to know what I am made of will never be enough.
About the author:
James Croal Jackson is a writer, filmmaker, and
musician born in Akron, Ohio. He rediscovered his love for poetry while working in the film and television industry in Los Angeles. He is the winner of the 2016 William Redding Memorial Poetry Prize via The Poetry Forum in his current city of Columbus, Ohio. This is his first chapbook. Visit him at jimjakk.com.

Challenging Submissions -- The Wayward Sword



$15.00 USD
Litmag (plus Free PRINTABLE PDF)
...poetry should be subversive turning
your heart and mind against one another,
making them rivals and best friends
because of it. poetry should challenge
the reader without alienating them.
stimulate them without stringing them out.
it should be concise without being spare.
poetry should be a lover
you can never get enough of...

vanished faces by Peter Marra


$15.00 USD
Full Length Book (plus Free PDF)

$0.99 USD
E-book (PDF)
Excerpt:
memory collapsed polluted
a recording machine broken
snapped black tips penetrate
in the July sticky rain
reaching
reaching until finally becoming limp
she told herself those delightful
virgin martyr stories
one more time
one more time
as she climaxed one more time

- Room 22: A One Dimensional
Theater of Disgrace
About the author:
A native New Yorker, Peter currently resides in Jackson Heights Queens.

His earliest recollection of the writing process is, as a 1st grader, creating a children's book with illustrations. This
project contained a crayon drawing of an airplane caught in a storm.
The caption read: "The people are on a plane. It is going to crash. They are very scared."

Peter Marra's writings explore alienation, addiction, love,
secrets, and obsessions.

Love Songs and Other War Poems by Lennart Lundh


$8.00 USD
Chapbook (plus Free PDF)

$0.99 USD
E-book (PDF)
I want to be the tongue to
shape sweet sounds you waste
away for never making

trace teeth and tease yours
against the strength of its own need

swirl living circles on your breasts
to raise you for my lips

dance torch-like on your thighs and
leave you molten

I want to be the tongue to
teach you languages you thought
had been abandoned

Masha Allah by And(y)i Line


$6.00 USD
Chapbook (plus Free PDF)


$0.99 USD
E-book (PDF)
"Were you proud of the way you turned them against me, as if I were the predator? This is not a poem about how much I hate you, or how broken I am; it's a celebration of reclamation and budding wings! of not feeling sick to my stomach every time a new man touches me, of not running from soft music and lit candles as if they are the fires of hell."
- Wing Buds [pt. 2]

"In a state of mind every bit as broken as 36 years of trampled eggshells, she told me she loved me. It was only the second time I'd ever seen her, but I had no doubt that those words were the closest things to truth that she owned."
- For Teri
About the author:
If you were to ask
Andrew who he is,
the first word out of his mouth
would undoubtedly be "artist."
More specifically, he is
a 20-something transgender *Hipster*
(shhhh! don't tell!),
a proud mother
to the most brilliant and beautiful
Princess in the world,
a Queer Rights activist,
a lover and dreamer.
His current endeavors include
learning Arabic and staying clean.
Andrew spends his free time
reading books on philosophy
that are way over his head,
watching the movie "Rent"
(over and over),
singing in the shower,
studying the psychology
of serial killers and
tearing apart enchanted forests
while slaying dragons
with his galaxy-renowned Kung-Fu skills.
His biggest pipe dreams
are to one day get his PhD
and stop moving so !@#$ much.
He firmly believes that Oxford commas
are for
conformists.

Blurb 
This diamond-sharp experiment with theme and variations cuts to the heart of Azriel Johnson's focus in forceful, intense strokes.

Watch especially how he exploits the sonnet form. Johnson doesn't pander: as a poet, he's the real deal.

winner of the SFPA Elgin Award for "Lovers & Killers" (2013)


Jonathan captures exactly with his photographs exactly what I had in mind with my poetry for this collection.
