"Across the Crops" by Tamara Nazywalskyj

Across the Crops


here comes sunday brunch and i romanticize the whole thing stretching it like bubble gum out of my mouth and around my finger until i realize the worst part about sunday is its over at dusk.


monday me in a cornfield now follow me with this knife i am too dull to hack through this yellow haze. take a vitamin i swear its only a vitamin and the whole crop drops to pray so now i see myself at a church where all the babies are so fashionable.


sit in the back right on the right. looks like i came late cuz the priest say amen, and a man asks me for my number because the sex knows no shame. don’t worry i will feel it for him my head drops like a shower, i try not to be so binary as in i try not to be so very hot so very cold. city of crosses crops of confusion church in the basement and all i know is i really love being in a room with people who worship you like wolves under moonlight and that sometimes i say the thing you want me to.

"Sir Arthur Evans" by Matthew Rettino

All my paths have led to Knossos: to this site, this stretch of soil. With trowel and brush I sculpt the palace, a labyrinth of toil, the hybrid truth imprisoned at its centre. The map of the palace e
