Issue 5 – Borders and Boundaries

Subprimal Poetry Art - Issue 5 - November 2015

Welcome to the Winter 2015 issue of Subprimal Poetry Art. As some of you may know, a few months ago we held a theme contest to come up with the theme for this issue. Of the many intriguing ideas that came our way, we selected Borders and Boundaries, submitted by Ariana Yeatts-Lonske. Her ideas sparked considerable thinking among the writers who submitted, and once again, we’re pleased to have a variety of works from around the world.

Many of the pieces have an audio recording with musical accompaniment that you can listen to while you read the text. Enjoy, and please share your thoughts in the comments sections.
