II: Poetry by John Sweet & Photography by Kris.K.G, 1


the short version

gun is the key to the future but
the child is dead

father is missing,
mother stoned

has a boyfriend who knows
what she likes and he smiles at
the sound of her pain

asks what the
kid’s name was

says it’s a fucking shame


John Sweet sends greetings from his bunker in the rural wastelands of upstate New York. He is a firm believer in writing as catharsis, and in the need to continuously search for an unattainable and constantly evolving absolute truth. His latest collections are A NATION OF ASSHOLES W/ GUNS (Scars Publications, 2015) and APPROXIMATE WILDERNESS (Flutter Press, 2016).

Kris.K.G is a London based photographer. His photography has been included in the anthology, Surreal Photography: Creating the Impossible (Ilex, 2013), edited by Daniela Bower, and also utilized as cover art for the religious studies monograph, Why Your Pastor Left (Create Space, 2016), by Christopher D Schmitz.
