Two Poems by Robin Ray — Across The Margin

These two poems by Robin Ray explore spiritual, if not literal, homelessness—that feeling of being untethered to a sense place or even a consistent story of self—as the defining experience of our time: “I haven’t/ secured a home in my wandering,/ not one place to rest my depression.” https://acrossthemargin.com/two-poems-by-robin-ray/ #poetry #poems #poet

"Safe Spaces' by Krissy Trujillo...

"No matter how loud and proud I am – and have been for the past decade – I’m still highly aware of, what feels like, everyone staring when I walk down the street holding another girl’s hand. I still feel self-conscious giving another girl a goodnight kiss – not even properly making out, but just a kiss – on the street, because I know the chances that someone around me might make a crass remark, or even worse, attack me, is a reality."

"Five years ago I met my husband, Frank, in New York City. It might sound cliché, but we matched well from the start. We both loved to travel, bar hop and spend time together. The relationship was not easy to maintain as for three years we lived in different cities, Frank in The Big Apple and me down in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. We only managed to see each other one or two weekends a month, but our bond was strong. Thank heavens for unlimited text message plans..."

https://acrossthemargin.com/manosphere/

This firm is the next new thing in intelligent machines. At least the trade magazines say so, and Olivia reads trade magazines. She’s also in the reception area, counting floor tiles and waiting to be called for an interview with the next new thing. Her job with the Army has been reduced to analyzing budgeting and costs, which for an engineer, is akin to death itself. While the characterization may be a bit extreme, Olivia has been bored to tears and needs to find something, anything else to do...

Have you pre-ordered Jessica Fischoff’s The Desperate Measure Of Undoing, out on 9.1.19?

The Desperate Measure of Undoing explores the feminine through mythology’s influence on the contemporary world. This collection of poems examines how the stories and truths of ancient women resonate today, and how the human condition, as a whole, is rooted in a timelessness beyond the confines of any era.

At Across The Margin, not only are we fervid admirers of the great Walt Whitman, but we are also HUGE Breaking Bad nerds — and the fact that those two worlds intermingled delights us to no end.

Across the Margin celebrates the 200th birthday of the great American poet Walt Whitman! We remember the iconic Brooklyn poet, essayist, and journalist as a humanist, with his works helping to further the transition between transcendentalism and realism. The Modernist poet Ezra Pound has called Whitman "America's poet... He IS America." and we could not agree more. Whitman has been celebrated as one of the most influential poets in American canon and one would be hard-pressed to truly understand America without Walt Whitman, and it was his belief that there is a vital, symbiotic relationship between the poet and society. So Happy 200th Birthday to the First Poet of Democracy, the Father of Free Verse and the Prophet of our Utopian Future! #Whitman200 #WaltWhitman #poetry #poems #poet
