Synesthesia

I’ve always wondered what songs look like. Wouldn’t it be interesting if we could give our feelings and the sounds we hear a way to be seen? I’ll be taking some of the most well-known songs and creating them into art form, spilling out my […]

OVER HEARD

OVER HEARD

Oh, the dialogue of a public high school. There is nothing quite like it; from the shouts in hallways, to whispers in girls’ bathrooms, to answers in class, and even teachers’ exasperations. I hear it all, and so do you. The only difference is I […]

Art in Alternative Minds

Art in Alternative Minds

We will only ever know what it’s like to be us. My thoughts are restricted by the things I have and haven’t experienced, as are yours. It’s human nature however, to be curious. How far can the mind’s function be warped and stretched beyond ‘normal?’ […]

‘Winter is Coming’ by Radical Face

I see the winter, she’s crawling up the lawn I feel her breathing beneath my palms She tears the trees down while curses roll from her tongue Got eyes like anvils and storms for lungs Hiding in our house, sunburn in his mouth, Summer’s in […]

‘Courage’ by Anne Sexton

• It is in the small things we see it. The child’s first step, as awesome as an earthquake. The first time you rode a bike, wallowing up the sidewalk. The first spanking when your heart went on a journey all alone. When they called […]

Excerpt from ‘EGGHEAD’ by Bo Burnham

‘A Litany for Survival’ by Audre Lorde

‘A Litany for Survival’ by Audre Lorde

For those of us who live at the shoreline standing upon the constant edges of decision crucial and alone for those of us who cannot indulge the passing dreams of choice who love in doorways coming and going in the hours between dawns looking inward […]

‘6:59am’ by Shane Koyczan

I’ve been told That people in the army Do more by 7.00AM Than I do In an entire day But if I wake At 6.59AM And turn to you To trace the outline of your lips With mine I will have done enough And killed […]
