a slight change to submission guidelines:

if rejected, wait a month before submitting again.

*resubmitting is not advisable if one is doing so to lecture us on what is a fit for our site. that is not resubmitting, that is bullying.

here are two things we found / were summoning:

one can look all day online and miss a tumblr message that replaces the dropped pin with the sigh of a ghost:

every time i bruise, my ghost blushes cranberry red next to the turkey in mom’s stomach. sister played outside with a broken arm and the wind turned her into a constellation. i wish upon a star to live ‘the day my dog died’ for the people upstairs depositing emeralds in their lungs like loose change in a jar. my childhood counts the quarters for staying in bed and the toy i want most is self love
