subaltern in shades: anticipating summer – day 19, poem 19!

subaltern in shades:anticipating summer    —              Max Wolf Valerio


subaltern in shades

slant monsters


midget cuneiform encyclopedia



subaltern in shades

semiotic Cyclops entellechy

binary lockjaw maiden

you saw my elbows off at the root

and make my knees into strings



hell broken loose
