Lower Parallel
Amy De'Ath

Lower Parallel takes pleasure in anger at what's not changed, got worse, hurt everyone, some more than others, waged and unwaged; is sincere with rage against what is intolerable, like nobility, like men, colonial and not; wants to cancel its own resistance to being reduced to intellect -- reduce me, it says, here's a feminist anyway, so fuck you!

£6.00, 28pp, ISBN 978-1-903488-84-3, 2014/09

More about Amy De'Ath»


I must admit I am an attention whore
and that might be forcing you at the point
but give free rein to this, and the sky, split
to nothing. Growing up in a mad dance--
            Since LOve tackles DEbt, I will follow it to
the marrow, 380° restaurants at that time would
not serve cats or dogs, neither do I have nastiness
pooled, I just want to suspend her now
at this time of my life
