I am eager to share three of my poems, Rabid, Body Positivity, and Seedling are published in the eighth issue of FERAL: a journal of poetry and art.
FERAL is a courageous exploration of the creative and raw truths words give birth to, as well as a refreshing look at how artwork and writing influence and complement their interpretations of each other.
After spending five days in bed with body aches and a fever, I started to feel a little feral, especially in my wandering thoughts, dreams, and mindset. And, while it is not the rebalance I would choose, it was a ripe cleansing that leaves me open to new artistic interpretation and literary experimentation.
I like a little wildness, especially in finding the courage to speak a scarred truth. Going from rabid to admiring the beauty of a tiny seedling is meditative, dangerous, and climactic. The poets within Issue Eight explore their truths and share gutting stories in language so lifting it explodes on the tongue.
I invite you to enjoy Rabid, Body Positivity, and Seedling and give in, if only briefly, to your daring side.
The following is an excerpt of my poem, Rabid
He builds boats and
Teaches gentlemen how to scull
Because the river
Is too long
For him to search
Alone for her . . . please continue reading here and feel free to share your beautiful thoughts!
