Poetry On Hiatus

We're looking for sensual, original work which adds something different to our perspective on sex and sexuality. We are looking for poems on a broad range of erotic themes. We are interested in provocative poems about all types of lifestyles and cultural perspectives, all forms of sexual play, and insights on the nature of eroticism. All sex-positive material will be considered; however, the editors reserve the right to reject any work based on content or quality. We would like to see some of the following in all of the work sent to us: Sexuality of the oozing kind; clear, clean, sharp images maybe (or maybe not) cloaked in filigree; explicit language used in different ways; inventive use of line breaks, and fresh, fresh metaphors. Allusion, innuendo, crescendo and diminuendo, and always in blue.
