Home and Away (2008)

“Home and away: two sides of the same coin. In this, our annual special collection between issues of Not One of Us, we meet two young men experiencing life on the road with a dead guy, a woman torn between staying in and getting out, crunchy bones, a desert home, and tube riders finding a place in urban legend. In verse, we have snapping bonds, swirling eyes, floating off with no way back; Lady Death, a second ghost, and shadows cast both ways.”
