"poetry jam 1" by Slashscreen. This is a zip file that contains one story and then a poem. The story is "uncle john" and the poem is "Angel, Angel, speak to me". Both are very short reads, but do paint an interesting picture. They cover both a spiritual request and personal familial trauma. I hope to see more writing from Slashscreen and appreciate the submission of deeply personal feelings and experiences.
