Shann Palmer


I am days down
I am face clowned
I am full of righteous rage.

I am skin tight
I am bent light
I am vomit on the page.

You can slam shut
You can rebut
You can rend your Daddy's shirt.

You can dredge up
You can D cup
You can wallow in your hurt.

I will unfurl
I will shit hurl
I will elevate the hour.

I will rock hard
I will chin guard
I will confiscate your power.

Shann Palmer: I am a Texan living in Richmond, Virginia where I host and participate in readings, workshops, and open mikes to provide opportunities for other writers. I am published in print and on the web with recent work in Short, Fast, and Deadly and Redheaded Stepchild. Words are music notes I write down when I'm not playing the organ and directing a choir. I once helped my dad push a UHaul off a cliff in Arizona because my parents were fugitives and needed to get rid of it.



Fiction on the shorter side


Poetry and words like that


Longer fiction and well worth it.
