I am you

by fyarlgiles


There is a  mountain

betwixt the hearts of lovers

That cannot be climbed

nor eroded

by the prickles of hail

It sits

through iron-willed blizzards

and roaring fires.



None have tried to break it

or tunnel through it’s chest

Instead, they dream right passed it

and so

it falls

 to dust.

Lit Mash: Her Sexual Awakening

by fyarlgiles


She was stretched on her back beneath the pear tree soaking in the alto chant of the visiting bees, the gold of the sun, and the panting breath of the breeze when the inaudible voice of it all came to her. She saw a dust-bearing bee sink into the sanctum of a bloom; the thousand sister-calyxes arch to meet the love embrace, and the ecstatic shiver of the tree from root to tiniest branch creaming in every blossom and frothing with delight. So this was a marriage! She had been summoned to behold a revelation. Then Janie felt a pain remorseless sweet that left her limp and languid.

Morning Follows the Night

by meaghanmerrifield


morning mist collides with salty cement

my blisterd feet fumble to where i was

before the night was spent

with blurry black soles

 and bloody ribbons running through my eyes

i walk

and walk

as the sun continues its rise

I’m All Ears

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart.

I am,

I am,

I am.”

Quote from Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar

“I Hear Everything” by Liam Brazier

Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom

as it shifts and cracks

Where secrets lie in the border fires

in the humming wires

On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man

In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

You’re one microscopic cog

in his catastrophic plan

Designed and directed by

his red right hand

Lyrics by Nick Cave

A Body in Bloom

by meaghanmerrifield


when water falls up

flesh unfolds

brazenly exposed

newly liberated limbs

satiate virgin skin
