I’m really excited to share my twist on “Insect Poetics” in The Volta. I’m thankful to Mathias Svalina for including little creepycrawly me among so many writers whose work I deeply admire. I have to say though, that the pieces by Roberto Montes, Cynthia Arrieu-King, Vanessa Villareal, Paul Cunningham, Allison Titus, Eric Baus, Aditi Machado & Joshua Poteat are doing the most for me ~ also, the passage from Okot p’Bitek’s Song of Lawino is great. Joshua Ware’s collages are too. Whatever, the whole issue is fantastic. Read it!
