Hey, check us out, we’re now running poetry! Every week, forever… curated by the dashing Tommy Pico, of Birdsong fame. Our very first featured poet is Nicole Callihan, with her great poem, The Other Dead. Below is a sample; read the whole thing here.

I walked back
to my house
that I remember
as paper
though I’m sure
it was brick or stone
or wood and my mother

was crying because
the orthopedist
was screwing a nurse,
she said,
then explained
that screwing is when
grown-ups kiss.
