Be Good To Yourselves & Your Neighbours

Be Good To Yourselves & Your Neighbours

I’m not gonna lie, 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year with highs so fucking high, and lows so obliterating low, that they rivalled my most epic bipolar episodes, and I would be remiss not to mention that over the last 300 or so days, I have thought about checking out early a few [...]

Red Beans and White Rice

Red Beans and White Rice

Hypocrisy served with a hefty side of red beans and white rice, and a pledge to love the red man almost as much as you love the white, is still hypocrisy served with a hefty side of red beans and white rice. Bless your heart and a true patriot’s soul, take care of them both, [...]

Nothing To Say

There is nothing to be said about the way you hover over me, nothing about the way you grind your hips and your filth against me from somewhere inside of places, I have never been. There is nothing to be said about the way you breathe, hot and filled with rage, against the back of [...]

Keep One In The Chamber

Keep One In The Chamber

This poem was previously published on my column on Feminine Collective. Darkness has fallen. The winds, they blow strange. The devils we know have all changed their names. They have coloured their faces, these heathens without shame, all pointing corrupt fingers, all deflecting the blame. They kill our time breathing upon life’s precious things, taking [...]

Let It Burn – Jason King

Let It Burn – Jason King

I'm sitting outside....gazing at the night sky....counting stars....I’ve always had a love affair with them....it’s quiet....except for the crickets....and this large dog on the other side of a fence barking at me....I bite back dammit....this makes me think also I'm actually a little excited for my nervous breakdown....I’m only half joking about this.... mainly because [...]

Thank you, Sir, Can I Have Another? – Stephanie Bennett-Henry

Thank you, Sir, Can I Have Another? – Stephanie Bennett-Henry

Thank you, Sir, can I have another? I wasn't quite clear the first dozen times you called me a bitch, a whiny female, worthless. Tell me again how I'm dramatic, overreacting, just in the way. Tell me how I'm ruining everything for you just by talking. Somehow my voice got a firm grip on your [...]

Winds of Change

Winds of Change

      I have nurtured the seeds of resistance planted in my bones long ago. Roots grown swift and mighty, a solid foundation of iron stands me firm and holds me true. Vines of resilience climb the length of my spine-straight. Blooming down arms of hope and hands of peace, raised in wait, to [...]

Crazy, Cancer & Chuckles

Last month Stephanie Bennett-Henry and I wrote something together that touches on Stigma. I was reluctant to post it for (get this) fear of offending people. How ridiculous is that? Pretty ridiculous considering the disgusting comments and jokes that people are making today, in regard to Sinead O'Connor. I swear to God, some of you need [...]

The Candle and The Fire – Jason King

The Candle and The Fire – Jason King

  I love sex....I'll say that again....I fucking love sex....I'm a man... I know it supposed to just go with the territory....it's not just the act of penetration I enjoy though....although that moment when you first enter someone for the first time....is possibly one of the greatest things ever....if I ever win the lottery I'll [...]

Is It Good Enough? – Matthew D. Eayre

My first day at preschool, I could see that the teacher's aide wanted to teach me the letters, so I didn't say,   I know this already... I was afraid of hurting her feelings. When she asked me to try, I read the words and kept reading, I learned to read at home when I [...]
