April 2019 Guest Editor Is EMMA SzH!!! Theme/s: BLOOD – violence, lines, the end times

Burning House Press are excited to welcome EMMA SzH as our APRIL 2019 guest editor! As of today EMMA will take over editorship of Burning House Press online for the full month of APRIL.

Submissions for EMMA are open from today – 1st APRIL and will remain open until 23rd APRIL.

EMMA’S theme/s for the month are as follows

 

BLOOD

VIOLENCE, LINES, THE END TIMES

 

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:11

 

Art across all media is sought to build a mosaic of that most inner integument: bodily, socially, earthly; we strive to name our communal, personal element, the river that pegs us; the promise and the curse that binds us.

What was blood to you when you:

lived, died, returned, repaid, restored, hurt, lied, taxonimised, identified, glorified, fled

What does it mean when it comes every month? What does it mean when it doesn’t?

Cinderella upon Remembering Bruno

 

Her hands

down by her sides

 

Also her drink of choice

and how she speaks to

the bartender

 

Her subtle, slow

I’ve got all day

Loretta Oleck: Over the Threshold

Over the Threshold

 

We laugh like newlyweds

as you carry me over the threshold

into a house rife with the spirits

of former tenants-

 

a lonely caretaker, a childless couple,

a single mother-

 

their DNA peeling off the walls

like chipped paint.

M.J. Iuppa: 2 poems

Every Hour Hurts in Fall

 

By now, you have adjusted to time’s addition, waking

without alarm, your body’s sudden jolt of electricity—

 

your toes and fingers wiggle—eyelids flip open to stare

at the ceiling’s cold.  You’re still here.  Isn’t that crazy?

 

You want to get moving before you hold still, before

you find yourself between the flight of day & dream.

Adedayo Agarau: 3 poems

EXIT

 

on being broken / like shards of withered glass / my body

repels every music its soul makes / i close every door i

can’t walk back through / by this i mean i keep memories

in a box of cigar / god tells me i am a chapel Continue reading “Adedayo Agarau: 3 poems”
