{ the sweetest bee makes the thickest honey. }

Elizabeth Reddin
A stroboscopic narrative depicting the infantile side of warfare, and the martial violence of childhood, in the guises of psychosexual murder mystery, memoir, and hallucinatory, incestuous love story.

Matthew Corey
Like its protagonist, a soon-to-be ex-lover, this poem walks the gauzy line between pessimistic longing and tightly controlled anger with affectless precision. The wryly homicidal narrator dissects his surroundings with a razor-bladed need to get under the dumb surface of things, then bemusedly steps back when the red begins to show.
