William Blake, Adam Naming the Beasts (Detail), 1810



"I call it sex
because I don’t know
how else to say
terrified of dying.
Silence ruins
everything. It says:
you will not get your wings this way
not the wings you want
and you want
more than anybody.
I have wanted
many unfair things.
What is most unfair
is that the Earth is still okay
with me being here
I think, and even
encourages it.
Hello ocean,
you have asked me
not to die, but I swim
in neon pools
that are happy
to kill me."

FLASH MOB SUBMISSIONS!

wintertangerinereview:

Dear writers, dear artists, dear antelopes, dear firecrackers,

If you’ve been waiting for a sign to submit to WTR, here it is.

Winter Tangerine Review has opened a 24-HOUR free-for-all submission period!  You can submit an unlimited amount of pieces (art, poetry, prose, film, and dramatic writing!), and receive a decision in three days or less. We’re hungry. Send it all.

The Flash Mob Period will also signal the (almost!) end of submissions for our Imaginary Homelands online feature, guest edited by Rosebud Ben-Oni so be sure to submit as many poems as you like to that as well! Imaginary Homeland submissions will be open until September 3rd, so if you’re still perfecting that poem, you’ve got time.This will also signal the opening of Short Film submissions and Dramatic Writing submissions! 

Last submission period, we received over 600 submissions during our Flash Mob period and we can definitely beat that! Use hashtag #wtrflashmob on Twitter after submitting for a chance to win eBooks of all of WTR’s volumes so far! 

WTR will hold at least two flash mob periods every time we open a call for submissions, so if you’ve got a flight today or you’re doing brain surgery, don’t fret - there’ll be more opportunities to show WTR all you’ve got.

What are you waiting for ? SUBMIT NOW!

"So I’m alive and you’re alive
and we’ve been given this lethal
love to work with. It takes and takes,
it keeps demanding more room,
it expands, it is half lung and half mouth,
a crust of moon shell, moon shine, it
is sober and harsh like the light
of day after a night of more alcohol
than smiles, it is hormones reaching
peak, the height of arousal, it leaves blood
on our hands and stains on the mattress
but still we bask in the sheer
miracle of it. Even when we cross
our hearts and promise we wont.
Even when we burn our tongues on it."
