Ten issues!?! Mind blowing. And we’re just as excited by this one as every single one before.
fourteen exciting poets. fourteen different stories. fourteen queer poems.
Our poems from this issue come from The Netherlands, Nigeria, Ireland, the USA, Egypt and, of course, our home right here in London.
These poems look at gender, love, longing, using a urinal for the first time and sex as self care, among other things. Love is a leather jacket, Beyoncé singing Crazy in Love, defining yourself, horror films, waking up spooning, or your kid dancing in a graveyard.
Here’s your fourteen poem titles.
