John Sweet sends greeting from the abstract wastelands of Endicott, New York. He is a firm believer in writing as catharsis, and in the need to continuously search for an unattainable and constantly evolving absolute truth. His latest collections are Approximate Wilderness (2016 Flutter Press) and A Nation of Assholes With Guns (Scars Publications). All pertinent facts about his life are buried somewhere in his writing.

cover yr ears & shade yr eyes
sunlit hills straight down to
weeds pushing up through
belief is what’s brought you
insurance will pay for the abortion
the coup will fail
twenty thousand dead in the
learn to levitate
consider what any government has
all theories bleed themselves
