Synkroniciti is excited to welcome poet Scott Ferry, with two wonderfully gritty cadralor poems: Black Friday and a request. The first chips away at the nature of existence, reality and pain, while the second explores the relationship between parents and children and the desire for wholeness there. Raw, vulnerable and profoundly moving.
If you didn’t see our earlier reference to the cadralor: it is a very recently created form consisting of five numbered episodes that could stand as separate poems. These are image-driven and any connection between them should be that of synchronicity: meaning that occurs between seemingly unrelated episodes. It is a rich form and we are happy to have three in the new issue.
If you would like to sink your teeth into Scott’s very human poems, please subscribe or buy the issue. Thank you!
