Art by Brooklynd Turner, Poetry by Virginia Croft
They’re not really
More like a side effect
from my fear of:
Losing my hearing
I walked around the
grocery store for a
Stuck between the baking chocolate
and the almost-donuts we ate after the glacier
Opting for the imported peanut butter:
Sticky teeth with a side of anxiety.
what you eat these days
while I’m gone
Virginia Croft is really enthusiastic about baby bears and Michael Cera’s existence. She also writes for Paste and Treble Zine, and tweets semi-witty things here.
Brooklynd Turner is a freelance illustrator and yoga instructor from Dallas who moved to Minneapolis to earn her BFA from MCAD. Her recent work focuses on the self-therapeutic qualities of experiencing emotions fully and letting them pass, rather than closing up and numbing out immediately. Her illustrations are reminders for women that they are not alone, and encourages them to feel lovingly strong, capable, and comfortable in their bodies. See more of her work here.
