NO, I WILL BE IN THE WOODS


"Yes, I will be in Michelle Taransky's words. I will call Michelle Taransky into question. She says we are all addicted to evidence. Yes, I will be in Michelle Taransky's woods. Michelle Taransky decided to make these choices. And she says the word feverfew. No, it isn't as simple as taking one o away and putting in its place an r. But I love how she gets me to do this. These point the way, the way a slash on a tree in the woods blazes a path. A hint, an inkling. I will go there to see what she says see. And I'm pretty sure I'll be better off everafter."

- Dara Wier, author of Reverse Rapture & Hat on a Pond

New from Flying Guillotine Press!



The Blues of Javal Davis

stay open about drawing
an opinion ████
████████ from
the comforts of your living

room watching CNN
if you were actually on
the other side of CNN
fighting for your life pretty

much on our own we
worked seven days straight
slept seven to a cell
I was told to bang cans

throw cold ████slam doors
I blared heavy metal ████
loud all hours but the prisoners
████████air guitar

I blared Hip Hop Hurray
until they began to bob their heads
And then I played country
they said Allah Allah cut it off

country drove them crazy
CNN says we’re some dumb
poor kids from Garbagecan USA
it didn’t turn out to be that way
