The Danger of the “Woke” White Man Blurb: Welcome to my weekly rants where I get angry over everything. Two of my professors stand in front of the room. One is Todd Tobias. The other is Reggie Gibson. One of them was on the first […]

Spiritual Healing: A Guide

Spiritual Healing: A Guide

Magic- isn’t that a sort of witchcraft? To Nicole, it’s everything but witchcraft, it is healing; it is her equivalent to your god. Crystals, essential oils, tarot cards carry spiritual power, only activated when you learn to believe. Call her a hippie, sure- she’s heard […]

Katie’s Games

It’s difficult for board games to be scary: nothing can physically jump out at you, the text you can share is limited, and it still needs to be playable and fun. Betrayal at house on a hill is one of those few games that is […]

‘Contained Chaos’ by Sarah Nelson

‘Contained Chaos’ by Sarah Nelson

The coil turns red Heating up, slowly The first bubble rises with my anticipation To the top Cools, back down A cycle of tame excitement A slow dance of science The blue wax pools On the top of the vessel, so I shake it a […]

‘Meaningless Nothingness’ by Josh Wilmer

‘Meaningless Nothingness’ by Josh Wilmer

I entered this world clean, untarnished, Curious, pure. I couldn’t stay that way, could I? You couldn’t let me, could you? Rivers of acidic nothingness flow, Steam rises from the surface, The ghosts of things now forgotten. Madness; there is no purpose in the rivers […]

‘Recluse’ by Tony Senatore

‘Recluse’ by Tony Senatore

Grappling heat leaks from a bright hole in the sky. An invisible, broiling blanket wrapped tightly, burning the skin. Ocean blue clashing with yellow magma. Look with a dizzy gaze to the wavering horizon. A retreat to the cold rock walls of refuge nearby. Draped […]

‘Bra’ by Angela Qian

Waiting beneath the rubble of youth, Femininity mixed with delusion, He took the air out of her lungs, And refused to color her human. He covered her in smoke, Her representing all that were, all that are, and all that wish to be In the […]

‘My Love Rests Beside You’ by Lena Iabiran

it was not me who sought deep to find the light of our hands and words of wisdom embedded in this land it was not me who fell too far making me see the love I had was not mine to keep cutting sustenance for […]

‘He’ by Grace Guildener

‘He’ by Grace Guildener

He Too much dysphoria to ignore, not enough courage to admit it. A calculating coward, weighing the options for years on end. At this rate it may just end up buried in the ground with the vessel I’ve always felt detached to occupy. Or maybe […]

‘A Gift to You’ by Jonathan Fanshaw

‘A Gift to You’ by Jonathan Fanshaw

Opened whole to pay my debts Olden seams and classic apparel Credit cards, license picture Alongside simple colored paper A hole below, for time degrades Pennies fall, making cents Money’s cheap, hear our words Memories are better spent Tales spun with golden glory Silver veins […]

‘Softball’ by Catherine Elliott

‘Softball’ by Catherine Elliott

Calloused fingertips, Raised laces worn down smooth. Spirits battered from strikeouts, Body frayed from heat. Dirt filled cleats, Pebbles prod through heels. Low-scored games, Face paint smeared.
