Rust+Moth is pleased to announce the arrival of our Autumn 2016 issue! Featuring the work of such poets as Jordan Ranft, Nico Wilkinson, F. Daniel Rzicznek, and Mary Alice Endicott, this issue is missing a few teeth.
Jung wrote that “if one loses teeth, one loses the grip on something… this can mean a loss of reality, a loss of relationship, a loss of self-control.” Such are these pages, filled with betrayal, ticking clocks, internal organs in rebellion, and silent walks through dreamlit fields. We’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building momentum toward a finalized print edition in September. In the meantime, we invite you to join us online as this “somewhat dangerous communication with the unconscious” unfolds.
Rust + Moth Summer 2016 is now available in print! Featuring 32 new poems, this issue surprised us. In strong counterpoint to the easy days of summer, these pages are dark, the blue-dark of summer nights, of grief, of wild flowers and cemeteries. You can read it on our website or buy a physical copy. May it keep your eyes wide open.
