❤️🔥Hot People are in a Situationship❤️🔥
is he hot or is he just fishing on our platform of revolution
Omg, how full are you from our dinner party last month??? It looks like there must have been some cuties in attendance, because now 💔 hot people are in a situationship❤️🔥 Equal parts spicy, equal parts heartbreaking, we have three new poems for you (including our first video piece!!) featuring work submitted to our first open call.
She’s just not that into sex anymore 🙅🏽♀️ by Helen Lovett
But did you try... Breathing gently into her mouth After trapping her bottom lip With no rush to remember The rest of the room Asking her about the sadness In the way that she smiles While her eyes drown In a busy bar at midnight Thinking that her mistaking You wanting to snack on ‘McKrokets’ for ‘MicroCats’ Was the best thing you’d ever heard Feeling her manicured nails Sink into the back of your hands While sliding your tongue To her own beat in the dark Explicitly telling her That you don’t want her to serve you When she offers you coffee From the cafe down the road Chasing her along the hall As a groveling Gollum While she high-pitch squeals Because she’s your precious
About Helen (She/Her): I use poetry as an extension of therapy and as a way to delve into hot conversation topics that me and my friends have discussed. Womens' sexuality has come up many times and there seems to be a repetitive pattern; men thinking that their partners are just not that into sex any more… and women thinking they no longer have a sex drive until they become single again. It seems like, rather than a lack of libido, these women are often feeling unappreciated, unseen and unloved ~ and this has led to a lack of interest in sex with their partner 🤷♀️

Is he hot or is he just 😒 by Stephanie Felten
Fishing on our platform of revolution, trash in shades of blue The vertical power of a strong tree My body betrays me On second thought it is powerful and perseveres Raindrops fisheye my thoughts Trees with ancient underground networks extend for miles while dinosaurs swim in polluted waters Fishing on the platform of exploitation of nature The space for play is filled with waste That's why the baby scowls from their buggy The noise pollution of this aggressive corridor seeps into the green space Is he hot or is he just… Running hard on the field Running with a ridiculous form Holding his pipe too close Hanging on to two rottweilers Cooking with a camping stove Feeling the rain against his skin with the hopes of feeling something, human, anything Sculpting headless forms Just a child Just lost Rolling by, a shell of his former self A part of the problem We say dogs don't understand but what if they do What if they are just as traumatized as we are without a way to express it Never too old for football Rest and play The park holds peace and violence Robbie move it move it Weeping willows whole No bowl cut Manicured lawns and grasses traded for fertilizer polluted waters Why do cars drive here A century of destruction Streets named for colonizers and owned by oil dynasties A black cat like Felix A lady said hello! My smile is so big I feel seen I feel heard Not abandoned like last week's trash on the curb Ultra processed foods and gold strappy sandals Is that anxiety or am I dying The mice run from this restaurant as the sun sets Is that ambulance working overtime for covid Do these people have enough to eat are they warm in the winter time Are there enough coffee shops to keep them all warm Is the watermelon still good Will the kid in the spiderman suit grow up to be a villain What are the words that are stuck in my throat, that I am not willing to write Exhausted after doing so little People are darting with no place to cross and cars that don't belong pollute our air and our ears.
About Stephanie (She/her): I am inspired by my passion for people, the earth, and community to write, occasionally. My strong sense of empathy and justice, combined with intuition and ability to absorb complex details, drives me to use writing as a tool to advocate for important issues. This is one of my first attempts at poetry, as a new form of expression on these topics. Also, I answered this like it's a job interview and a biography is too hard. K thanks!
Instructions for zine:
Download this PDF file front and back on a single sheet of A4 paper (we suggest a slightly thicker paper so the ink doesn’t bleed through, or you can also print it on two separate pages and have a zine + poster of Coline’s beautiful work!)
Fold along solid lines and cut along dotted line (follow this little diagram I found online to make it easier!)
