A short story by Leah Mueller
I was at Burning Man for two days before I finally looked at the official program. Up to that point, I had wandered aimlessly around the playa, scoring free alcohol, which existed in abundance.

I wanted to try something new.

Shouting inside my head
To mask the uninvited words of men
Their smell of sweat smell of dirt
A poem by Mercedes Webb-Pullman
Primeval Mother breathed the world, and we

by caretaker’s responsibility

A poem by sage Curtis

A poem by Ashley Gravett
The heart flows all the way out through your fingertips she said knowingly
No wonder so much of my heart comes out through my pen
who is responsible for the suffering of your mother?
A poem by Samantha Wallen
The silence surrounds her. A character of fiction, her name rises with a tide of words—do you know her name and place of birth? A walk along the jagged shoreline she wades through the debris to re-member.
