IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, PLEASE HANG UP Mangos are the ripest weapons on hand. You ask me what I’ve wanted the longest and I say a mate whose jugular I couldn’t burst. Going everywhere in a transparent blouse only to see where visitors would leave their signature. The sky is entrailed with fireworks. A hobo...

BLOOM Scraped into shallow, almost hostile questions of spring, girl feels the full girlishness of her being flood in. The first tulip discovering its great head. Girl falls into the soil, doubles the doubles double and divide until they’re all whirling intently against the rich dark so-cold-it-seems-wet. One resists, swiping at the pleasure of itwhile...

Marcela Huerta: from Tropico

TROPICO I buy a game for the computer in the family room. The game is a simulation game, I buy it full-price at a game store, not for 50% off from the discount bins at Walmart like I usually do. The game I buy is called Tropico. In it you are the jefe of a...

Three Valentines from Lynn Crosbie

Three Valentines from Lynn Crosbie

More than We Can Bear Where you going? To CHURCH? Our upstairs neighbour, Clarice, liked to hang off her balcony and scream this at me and Lafitte, if we happened to be walking together, wearing black. I would soon learn this was her only endearing quality. When he and I moved into the house in...
All for Love, Knot for Love: A Collection of Found Valentines

All for Love, Knot for Love: A Collection of Found Valentines

We asked writers for the cheeky, the surprising, the twist in the V-Day poem. All for love or knot for love. JAN ZWICKY If I’m allowed to suggest a poem about love, I’d like to recommend Sue Sinclair’s “Passion”, from Breaker (Brick 2008). It’s a philosophical meditation on love in the widest sense — not for a human being, or even some other...
