home - just like the city, the temple, the palace, and the mountain, the house is one of the centers of the world. it is a sacred place, and it is an image of the universe. it parallels the sheltering aspect of the great mother, and it is the center of civilization.
at s.under press, we are a independent creative writing journal. we focus on poetry but welcome verse in all its forms. at s.under press we believe
in civil disobedience
in going against the grain
not tying ourselves down to what we think, or believe is pleasing to the palate
in creating structure from cobwebs and dusty whiskey bottles, stacked in the attic from a time or another.
in connecting these truths beyond comprehension, this is the illicit/implicit knowledge of being available to what drives and pulls us
we find and realize the center of self. to announce anything is to believe in the nature of self until its a sound twinging between open strings of liveliness.
