Let me write for you.

Let me write this poem
across your abdomen
with my tongue,
and craft similes on your collarbones,
alliterations on your breasts,
and metaphors on your thighs
with my teeth,

let me scratch sonnets into your skin,
tangle your hair into tankas,
hickie haikus onto your neck
kiss quatrains across your cheeks
bite odes into your lips,

let me lay you down
and scribble strophes down your spine,
caress you with anaphoras,
touch your temples
with my lips
and whisper rhymes
in your ear,

let me take these words
to your body
and tattoo them
with my saliva
and fingertips,
as I memorize the way
your body swells and curves,
so that I can write another poem
about you.

NO FEE Submission Call for Vagabonds: Anthology of Mad Ones

Originally posted on Trish Hopkinson:

This anthology put together by Weasel Press is a great project. The editor is very approachable so this is a perfect place for new and emerging writers to submit.

“Our anthology publishes twice a year. We harbor the mad ones. People who are dedicated to their work to the point that they become misunderstood, or seen as a hot mess of crazy. Our anthology does not seek to break boundaries, we want to break boundaries and go farther. We want the shameless—the deep dark, cigarettes and dirty words combo. Although there is not a set theme of what we’re looking for, we often look at slice of life works.”

Deadline: August 31, 2015

Forms: Poetry, short fiction, prose, creative non-fiction, plays, movie excerpts, photography, artwork
