If anyone should betray me,
the heads on the sticks

should be raised as mountains.
The kids will carry us

to the hills and give us
glasses to peer through.

Five bucks a ticket,
the language is filmy.

Paint me into your memory
before dementia
lies beside you early one morning
like kids fingernails scraping
inside window permafrost,
as we are forced to remain apart
like two prizefighters
saved by the bell.

I will wait for you Nadia
in this cold-war of aggression
we have waged upon each
other’s emotions.
Out go the candles for now.

    -The Dimensions of Nadia

About the author: 
I never say goodbye, I say instead, goodnight.

FourPlay #28: The Body Sings Electric by Eli Williams

$1.00 USD

About the author: 
I write because it’s painful and sometimes pulling words out of my brain is like being submerged slowly underwater, grasping at anything to be brought back to a breathing point. Until that moment occurs you flail and wonder why you would ever put yourself into this predicament in the first place and even moreso wonder why you would keep coming back. Each time above water is like being in love for the first time. A rush of wonder and joy of life is thrust upon your soul and breathing is better than anything you’ve experienced. I write because it’s the only thing I haven’t been able to run away from. I live for those moments above water.
- Eli Williams

FourPlay #27: Birth Life Death Forever by Daria Quinn

$1.00 USD
Coming Soon
About the author: 
There just aren't that many queer writers out there, certainly not many of any real name value.  Even within our community, there's just not that many of us out there whose work is visible.  I just happened to learn early on that I had a talent for wordcraft, and because of this, I was able to focus on developing that talent at a time in my life where almost everyone else my age was focused on social status and popularity.  I don't really consider writing a talent or a gift so much as I see it as a responsibility.  I am an autistic, bipolar, transgender lesbian feminist in a time and political climate where people like me rarely, if ever, see their voices in print.  There is an audience in desperate need to see their lives and experiences represented in the media, and I, as a neurodivergent queer woman, have a responsibility to every other neurodivergent queer woman in the world to make my voice heard.  That's why I write.

    — Daria Quinn

FourPlay #25: Deliver Us into the Dark by Robin Wyatt Dunn

$1.00 USD

About the author: 
I write to keep the blood off my hands; better to have ink. I write for the revolution, which begins in the mind. I write to stay sane, although staying sane is a crazy thing to do. Also, I write for all the chicks.

“It took me four hours before I drove to the emergency room for my first heart attack,” I said. “My second heart attack was not an emergency.”
“Go ahead.”
“If we could hang in there until we got to the access, we could make it.”
“In other words, call 911, leave the decoys, and head for the access.”
“Yes!” I shouted, to make my point.
“I carry nitroglycerin.”
“So, do I.”
“Let’s go to the ceremony.”
— Pelican Lake
