food insecurity non-prophet



if you’re not walking between the highway to sell, carry, breathe & shed soft deaths, it can be easy to forget you’re living in the managed decline of our Global Capital Empire. betweenthehighway developed out of conversations with those dealing with food & home insecurity between highway 54 in Carrboro, NC.

betweenthehighway publishes 3-5 receipts every June 17th as well as free receipts on January 30th and November 24th.

beyond contemporary writing, betweenthehighway publishes the only in-print versions of Cleveland publisher and poet d.a.levy.

after production costs, all profits go towards authors and food insecurity.

      motivations





  • breathing exhaust, empty our luminous path between the highway


  • provide an extremely simple surface for writing: receipts & concrete


  • misunderstand what you may misunderstand 


  • remove poetry from the academic historian machine and the people in power who have needs so great they’ll kill us to express their inability to become human


  • growing patiently and leaping towards the sun with you as long as we are tired of dying


  • share absolute poems (each poem - a death of words, each poem - a death, each poem - a poet)


  • know why we are dying and struggle to live through the laughter of money’s nightmare


  • drink jasmine tea among withered trees in an emptied ocean


  • cross the black lake through boundless snow 


  • walk together beyond the highway and across a bridge of clouds to a new sun rising over the ashes of our necropolis

after SOPHIE XEON’s HEAV3N SUSPENDED
throatfolding


109 in. x 2.25 in.

          these pearls of fire
          are the mouths
          of a mute moon

          are grafted from nerves
          of soundless rivers

          there are still songs
          beyond our voices

          suspended heavens
          to be unsung
