QUEER HAIKU FINISHED COVER.JPG

Queer can mean different. Queer can also mean homosexual. Haiku has always fascinated me with it's power to boil down the umami within words to a more concise and meaningful message. It has been a solace, a mirror, and a game I play with myself when attempting to express myself. I attempt in this work to express first to myself, secondly to the zen bone and zen flesh that inspired my youth, and thirdly to amuse and cajole those who would read my words- taking this adventure with me. From the awkward and intense first kiss to the college class distraction sitting in front of you, I boil it all down into a broth that I'm sure many of you will identify with even if you're not expecting to. Many of these are written in my youth, many I've updated, and some are newer works all forming a kintsugi- forging them together into three golden books of Zen.

'The Moonlight Collection', a Triskaidekaphilic collection merging the works of two poets whose relationship is symbolized by the Owl and the Pussycat. Each volume contains 13 poetic works by each author (26 Total) working together along seasonal themes to amuse, cajole, delight, enchant, horrify, and titillate. We want you to feel it all as you drink in our words and devour the feast we place before you! The Moonlight Collection is R.A. Lopez and V. Saldaña, both Latino Americans, with each volume offering our musings on changes, experiences, seasons, and powerful symbolism.
