there he was
stumbling, falling in slow motion
always the memories
632 kills in 8 years
statistics for the ages
memories to pass to children
daddy falling out of the window
he wears the ring
the solider’s ring
the heaviest of metals
with polished gems
words of victory and valor
engraved like the 10 commandments
he drinks to remember who he was
he’s out of the killing business
but he still wears the ring
there he was

oooooooo!!!! when the goblin hoard gets full….
when we sat down and designed the frei art cooperative we never really foresaw our goblin hoard as a stagnate place for art to hang out, but we weren’t prepared for the amazing influx of contributors: artists, writers, musicians, homesteaders, grass-roots organizers! so here we are overflowing with awesomeness, and we have only one option to give it away! that is what gift economy is all about, y’all!
so please sign up to win some cool cool stuffs! all you have to do is email us email@example.com (your info will not be given out, sold, traded, etc nor we will bombard you with email love)
we have novels, books of poetry, cookbooks, paintings, sketches, prints, patches, paper copies of zines and much more!
we are looking for submissions: poetry, short stories, articles! if you are an indie artist we would love to hear from you!
we have several projects going on right now.
the contritions of the phoenix zine that focuses on indie art (visual, written, musical) and social commentary that sheds light on classism, queer related issues,the environment, sexism as well as global events. we also like jokes-a lot of jokes.
wild flowers for eric is a zine that focuses on mental illness. we are looking for stories, art, music that brings mental illnesses to the forefront in order to help people understand the struggle of living with mental illness, loving someone who has a mental illness and hopefully how to navigate through society to find help. all the proceeds will be going to a family who lost a husband/father to suicide.
and the topic is…a panel of individuals from varying backgrounds all presenting their side of a different queer related topic every month.
we want to present a wide variety of artists! if you have art, stories, articles, rants, reviews, comics, music, etc that you would like to submit please email firstname.lastname@example.org
i am so proud to be a part of this project!!! we are doing so much with this!!
shake your hips
like a river
on my flesh
let me drink you
like fresh rain
twist and turn
dance and laugh
sparkles fly out of your mouth
like shooting stars
in the daytime
you are the birth of venus
he was sitting on a bench
just outside the sliding glass door
emotional genitalia hanging out
on display for everyone to mock
he didn’t give a shit anymore
he grew up in ohio
where no one smiled
his big escape came in the mail
“You are hereby ordered for introduction into the Armed Forces of the United States and to report to”
to the sunny beaches of california
to the sunny beaches of vietnam
there weren’t no goddamn parades
a professional baby killer
and that’s who he was
and that’s who he is
knees bowed under the weight
of his reflection
he ain’t sure about anything
he ain’t ever going back to ohio
