Three of my poems are out in Dead Snakes this month, alongside Wayne Russell and Donal Mahoney. Last year, one of Joseph Robert’s poems also appeared in Dead Snakes – you can read his poem here. My latest batch of poems are poetic weirdos that deal with refuse in the mind. We all have stagnant thoughts, do we not? But when the junkyard collects too much detritus, the question we have to ask ourselves is: what can be salvaged? A poem will extract the nutrients that can be used to make the body stronger – if the crap doesn’t kill you first. But if nothing can be salvaged from the rubble, then do what you must and flush it down the crapper where it belongs!Unchilicious by Leilanie Stewart
