WOLVES: a magazine for the living, the dead, the suckers and everybody else in between. Dedicated to exploring, creating, touching, WOLVES is all about the words. WOLVES releases latest issue Tokyo: Volume 1 Issue 3.
The voyage amongst the WOLVES in this May/June issue starts off with a playful story First Date by Timothy Day. Day keeps the story moving with comical dialogue and a moving story line.
“I don’t want to be like other people dating,” she said as we went along.
“Me neither,” I agreed.
“How can we stop that?”
I considered.“For starters,” I said, “I won’t ask your favorite food, or favorite music, or favorite anything.”
As you continue traveling among the pages of WOLVES you’ll run into two poems Golden and The Price of Tower by former Five 2 One contributor Christopher Iancono. The two poems deliver unusual poetic lines that hit and wiz by the reader. In The Price of Tower Iancono starts off the poem with a dark image:
I stand in the hallway of a tree
and the Oklahoma wind jostles
The poem continues on a desolate path of abandoned promises:
“I push away the leaves
you run from your promise –
a seed that never grew,
left to harden and die
in a hospice of frozen earth”
As one continues their journey among the WOLVES in this issue. You’ll find another former Five 2 One contributor Marissa Price. Price hits us with a poem with beautiful imagery. She opened her poem with lines like:
would be stuck
together by a paste
that dries in textures of
Her words are strikingly beautiful and intense and should be ravaged like a piece of meat.
This May/June issue will satisfy any reader who is looking for a journey among literary WOLVES
