Having to waste our lives like this.

THE HALLMAN BY CORA CRUZ 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 63

No one talks about what it does to us, having to waste our lives like this, letting our time on this earth slip away for nothing, every day at work the same as the one before, watching ourselves never improving, never growing, not ever going anywhere.

This was the hellishly hot week I was let go. I was a copywriter in fashion expected to write 65 clothing descriptions a day.

FASHION COPYWRITER BY ELLEN BLOOMENSTEIN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 63

Do not write about love.  

THIS ABOVE ALL ELSE BY CORIE ROSEN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 63

This above all else: 

Write nothing pastoral. 

Do not celebrate the seasons.

Do not clasp hands with time. 

Do not write about love.  

(Whatever you do, please don’t do that.)


Can you not see what’s happening?
