Another two poems, ‘Rose Quartz,” and “Natives with Neural Activity,’ is located in the new issue of Cloudthroat online journal which an online publication aimed to publish Indigenous creativity and revolt.
Both projects are founded and led by some talented poets pushing for narratives that may have been unheard or oppressed, I am grateful to be included in their poetry projects and publications ♥
Little sneak peek of my new zine, Angsty Asdzáá. I wanted this Zine to be more raw and personal. I hand typed all of my poems and prose in this zine as well, it still has typo’s in it. Flaws and all💖💖💖-AM
