I created a soundtrack for the most brutal scene yet in the ongoing Identify novel collaboration.
I eat the white hot moon and the fuchsia blood-eating all man
I see the dead potatoes of our graves. Gulping in your absence, there is no agony or languor beneath the worlds in darker glory to refract from my mind, but of the word it is not mine
cutting off heads must be very satisfying, almost as fingers tapping into madness dreamt upon red-lands, the moon blinded by the osprey; but minds wait in guilt whilst flowers turn to wounds

The Second Chance Anthology contains literary pieces that have been withdrawn by their authors from unsafe publishing houses and magazines. The goal of the anthology is to bundle works into what is deemed a safe literary community and to expose magazines that contain unsafe views, for instance, racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, etc, etc.

I was particularly inspired by Marilyn Monroe and admittedly, I wish I had learned more about her earlier on in life

Slice the seeds with your hands, laughter stole the born, laugh in his face too
this would always be the self-suicide, generous with tragedy
We talked the Holocaust and the Ukraine on blood-hooks; Putin’s laughing, reversing time yet again. Inside his body: amnesia and via ferrata
