    Everyone has a unique and different experience when it comes to the pandemic. Everyone has their ups and downs, highs and lows. No-one is unaffected. Allow us to share our experiences with you. Perhaps, we might have a thing or two in common. Maybe we'd be able to help you understand the feelings that you couldn't quite put into words. Maybe reading the stories will make you feel less alone. We can't guarantee that our stories will be little more than words on your screen, much like being able to guarantee anything during these tough times.

    This is our love letter to you. We hope you can find some meaning in it.

  8. Lorca's "Ode to Walt Whitman"

    A great panoply of Pride, Federico García Lorca's Oda a Walt Whitman has never been properly translated into English. Here for the first time is the work in the spirit in which this tremendous Gay artist created it – a reclaiming of turf; a pronouncement that we have always been here, and are not going away; a celebration of our diversity. Coming from a man who was to be killed for his orientation 9 years after this poem's publication, nothing could be more impactful for the LGBT+ Community today.
    This poem celebrates Us through the auspices of not one great Gay poet, but two!

  10. Marty's Haiku

    By Marty, in Poetry. 01/03/2021 (Updated: 05/28/2021)

    Genres: Poetry
    Sub-genres: Haiku
    • dark
    • light-hearted
    • serious
    • philosophy

    I occasionally try my hand at writing haiku. I'm not claiming that any of it is really all that good. And some haiku purists might even claim that I don't always follow the rules of haiku correctly. Indeed some of my attempts could be more correctly classified as senryu, rather than haiku.

    Be all that as it may, I shall add my individual attempts over the next while. Some have been written many years ago. Others will be more recent.

    As the occasional offering may be somewhat dark in nature, I shall give the collection a rating of Mature. I will give individual chapter warnings where necessary
