The Aftermath

But maybe the wolf’s desire
was nothing more
than the want
to be with
someone else.
Maybe he loved
so much
he could only express
through consumption.

And maybe
she needed
rebirth, to destroy
evidence of her past.
Maybe she loved too much
and could only express
through destruction.

And maybe
out of a wolf’s belly,
our redness
covered by his redness,
is all want:
breaking free of bodies
consuming bodies.

Angela Veronica Wong was born and raised Texas. She lives in Manhattan and is working on a young adult novel.

All the Little Red Girls is a hand bound book of poems, with a vellum cover and attractive red ribbon to hogtie your dreams. It is printed in an edition of 74.

$8.50 includes shipping.

Garth Graeper's Into the Forest Engine

Garth Graeper, Into the Forest Engine

40 pages; hand-stitched binding; printed in a numbered edition of 120 in Chicago and Houston in August 2009.
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches; $6 (shipping included)

Here is a poetry of breath and breadth, crafted with honesty, clarity and grace. Here is a world sensed by more than sight, a wide-ranging sense which seeks out spaces between interior and exterior, organic and mechanical, intimate and foreign, and would be familiar to Whitman or Artaud. In the choked environment of our time, this work is porous, sustaining, vital. Drink it in. — Phil Cordelli

Now available at Projective Industries!
