Theme:  Crash the margins
Please trust me with your strange identity, your strange poem-machine-organs. I want those maybe-this-is-a-poem-idk? poems. Get weird. Get radical. Crash the margins. But, like, to be clear: I want experimental* work from POC and QTPOC writers.
*whatever that means


What have you read lately that’s excited you?:
I play this poem over and over in my head. It practically makes me dizzy.
