Black Widow by Carolyn D. Elias

Lover, I feed on my prey, like an unkindness of ravens, circling a carcass, set to be ravished. I will devour you to plug my boredom and loneliness. I am empty, a vessel subsisting on blood-lust. I am a parasite. If you love me, teach me to be my own happiness. Carolyn D. Elias’ work…

Melissa Hamilton: Issue 3

What was the inspiration behind “a love poem, of sorts”? It’s drawn predominantly from experience. Essentially, the poem began as a coping mechanism after a disturbing conversation; however, the poem itself took years to evolve (and even now, I’m not sure it’s fully complete). Distance, objectivity, and many creative workshops were undoubtedly key to its…

Aida Ibisevic: Summer 2013

What was the inspiration behind “Mama’s Bread“? “Mama’s Bread” depicts the first winter during Bosnian war. It captures the angst my family and I felt waiting for my brother to return home from the trenches, and the constant hunger that lingered on. A little background on the war for those not familiar… During the early…

Mama’s Bread by Aida Ibisevic

(Sarajevo, the winter of 1993-1994) Regardless of how much flour we had, Mama always baked bread on the nights when Brat was returning from the shift in the trenches. She was easy to find–hips against the counter, swaying to a song in her head while she wiped her hands on the apron. On the counter,…
