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 when occasion demands. 

beyond contemporary writing, betweenthehighway publishes excerpts of Cleveland publisher and poet d.a.levy.

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

Daniel Flosi’s 

53 in. x 2.25 in. 

edition of 200

          “i don’t know how to sit with the living”
          ...walked as much as written, this long
          poem swells along the page like the voice
          of morning grass in the mouth of a drying
          river that knows loss is gradual and even.

          Daniel J Flosi is the founder of Black
          Stone / White Stone Zine and author
          of the chapbook Cries, the Midnight Sky
          (Bullshit Lit, 2023).

Pragya Vishnoi’s

174 in. x 2.25 in. 

edition of 200

          Formed across years of feedback
          between the author and editor, this
          collection of poems begins by visiting
          the holy city of Varanasi with a lover
          and concludes by returning to Varanasi
          to cremate a lover.

          Pragya Vishnoi lives in India and her
          work has been published in Rattle
          Magazine and forthcoming in the
          I-70 Review, Canthius and BoomerLitMag.

Madison Krob’s 

40 in. x 2.25 in.

edition of 200

          "The bunny believes in letting things go."
          This essay jumps between the small
          dreams of sports and art in Midwestern
          small towns and a 200 ft. plush pink
          bunny decaying into the Italien countryside.

          Madison Krob is in the internet-age
          space of storytelling. Her work interacts
          with virtual reality and the weird things
          you find in your grandmother's basement.
          In addition to her website, she can be
          reached visually at @maddykrob
          on Instagram.

Ruth Jeffers’

40 in. x 2.25 in. 

edition of 200

          Three excerpts from "Bodies of Salt"—a
          record of her five months in Palestine as
          a student and volunteer—these brief
          essays are for Emad and Mohammed,
          “who awoke me to the beauty and injustice
          occurring in occupied Palestine. This
          story is for them and every Palestinian
          who showed me endless generosity
          as I witnessed their homeland.”

          Ruth has lived in North Carolina most of
          her life, but she likes to write about the
          times when she didn’t. She currently lives
          in Carrboro and cares for rescued farm

Palestinians are humans.

alex benedict’s 

218 in. x 2.25 in. 

edition of 300

          An ode to d.a.levy and Northeast Ohio,
          this poem follows an attempt to return,
          make offerings and listen, visualize
          and take vows, and wander cloud bridges
          or, more often, endless asphalt
          and concrete. Just as levy challenged
          the concrete reality of Cleveland,
          this ode is a struggle to thoroughly
          investigate the reality of the highway
          as a gate of liberation.          

          alex benedict runs betweenthehighway.
          Currently, he lives in the Cuyahoga Valley
          as he writes a full biography of Cleveland
          publisher and poet d.a.levy.
