Summer’s been so hot that my skin itches to get free. The type of July heat that burrows beneath you and remains there long after you’ve left the light. My brain can barely make it over the everyday hurdles, so I promise myself a cold beer once I make it to the finish line. Gold medal. Deserved win.
The air is thick with want. The bugs arrive in packs seeking flesh slicked with sweat. The unlucky ones find themselves flying toward a glowing trap — light, then darkness. The quick, sweet buzz of a life.
Brett Wright fucking kills me, everything he writes is perfect and difficult because it always hits close (and this new piece is no exception). I’ve been a fan for a very long time, following him on tumblr for a few years, and though we’ve made a half dozen plans to hang out, we never have.
He bought my planner for 2012, but this year he’s in it. Brett’s poem Should You Look Back to See Where You Came From appears in 2013, Another Year of Unsolicited Advice & Anecdotes, and I’m really proud to have him.
Parlor Issue 1 is an online collection of 4 poems by 8 writers. Writers were paired up and asked to write a poem based off of a title prompt without knowing who their partner was.
Exquisite corpse art was invented in the 1920s by the Surrealists as a parlor game. The first player would write on a sheet of paper, fold it over to conceal part of their piece, and hand the paper to the next player. The players would only find out what the other players wrote when the poem was finished.
After a bit of thorough Gmail correspondence with myself being the middlewoman between partners as they wrote their parts, the poems are now finished and published. I hope you enjoy Issue 1.
