Issue II: ESH Leighton

Below is an excerpt from a poem by ESH Leighton in Issue II: hermes (the kaleidoscope)

Antilullaby by ESH Leighton

How do I go to sleep


When I did not put the world back together again,

did not tuck in the snowy owls or

say goodnight to the weeping volcanos 


When I am just an amalgam of a human

bits of flotsam and jetsam, flora and fauna 

bound in a skin sack destined for dirt


How do I rest

when there is so much work yet to be done


Issue II will be released on Tuesday, 15th June

  1. This is absolutely beautiful and incredible. Bearing the weight of the world on your shoulders, it seems like. We can only do what we can. But, I resonate with this a lot especially in wanting to do something impactful enough to make a difference. Beautifully said, ESH.

    I’m really excited for the issue’s release! I can’t wait. 😁
