Calliope Nerve Part IX: Introduce Me To God is now available and free of charge featuring Love Beth Drew:
Scratching your name into my very bones a hidden scar with a surface reflecting the look on my face confounding as the thought lined in your brow drinking your scent like under the sink perfume luxuriously cheap and all too familiar a sidelong glance into forbidden glass eye contact at the most venal level a constant tug name your price on guts and it shall be soul like a metaphoric parasitic infection only slightly more alluring from comparing pictures that I’ve seen this new dis-ease will have to wait its turn the style turnstile in one heart and out another leaving marks inside each other this ever suffering unrequited love role suits just fine but as the debris on hands and knee keeps reminding me I am just a martyr past her prime.
Calliope Nerve features poetry, short lit, reviews, commentary, quotations, and odd bits in a wide range of styles. All editions are free of charge. Back issues available.
