Mary's art is so amazing! She and I have collaborated several times now and have two more publications coming up.
I'd love it if you take a look at this In The Fray Issue containing four of our collaborations. While you're there, take a look around the journal. It's diverse and interesting. They also pay, which is unusual for a zine.
Here's one of the images as a teaser. Nude Maiden On The Cross. Click to enlarge.
This went with my City of Forgiven Whores:
In this city
where birds fly upside
down, and sadness is a welt
made by a raindrop, he comes to me.
He speaks of sleep-talking dreamers,
whores dunked by blind preachers,
then kisses me like when we were young.
I tug him inside
and we soar till our wings melt —
two candles, burnt to the nub
of a universe rebuilding.
We fall past old gods
converted to new ways of seeing
into the clear cleansing river of Eros
that finally Huck Finns us away.
