“Mesquite” comes from a time when I worked at creating myths about the everyday things around South Texas. Read it here.
“Luchadores” comes from hearing Cathy Park Hong share a new poem called “G.L.O.W.” (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) and being inspired to revisit the little wrestler toys I played with as a kid. Read the poem here.
I am extremely grateful to have work in this issue of Waxwing. Check it out – including fine contributions by Wesley Rothman, Carrie Addington, and Erika T. Wurth among others – here.
See you Friday!
