Carole Maso
“And she smiles and she utters unearthly things and she utters not in any known language, in stars and pain, pulque she says I am devouring time and the earth”
Carole Maso, Beauty Is Convulsive

“Sometimes I like to be very plain. Invisible almost, hiding in plain sight. I want to hide and to be found.”
Sylvie Baumgartel, Song of Songs: A Poem

“I don’t want to be so sad. I read that you should think of your emotions like everyday objects. I tried it out with a ballpoint pen. I held it, and I pretended that it was my sadness. I rolled it back and forth on my palm. See, it moves! I dropped it. See, it’s just a thing I can drop! But I still felt sad afterward.”
Sylvie Baumgartel, Song of Songs: A Poem

“She cracked and cracked with no one to turn to: / Without begging hands, most Gods don’t make time.”
Akosua Afiriyie-Hwedie, Born in a Second Language

Carole Maso
“your head is flowers, your body the body of a deer, pierced”
Carole Maso, Beauty Is Convulsive
