Neely, Sparks, and Stomacher

2 Jul

It just kind of hit me how the nature of Vouched lends itself to more arenas than flea markets and art events. For instance, there are things online that deserve to shared, and so I present to you these 3 bits of incredible that I’ve read tonight as the first installment of Vouched Online:

*

Mark Neely has a poem up on Juked that throttles you straight away with, “Is it true that bodies are bomb casings…”

*

And lastly, this piece by Amber Sparks at Art Voice makes me want to remember how it was to be a tree.

We are not good at being men. We are weak, our minds and bodies soft and pliable, our histories marred by violence and loss into unsteady seasons, bearing ragged bark and stunted fruit. It is easy to make new people, but difficult to grow them, these restless ones that take so long to leave the nest. We are unsure always.

Read the entirety here.
