Used Cars by David-Matthew Barnes


David-Matthew's poem Used Cars is featured in the Car Poems series of the literary journal Politics/Letters. The poem will be featured in his forthcoming collection of poetry, Love and Detours.

About the poem, the editor says, "Installment 44 evokes landscapes of isolation and secrecy: queer kids driving under the radar, forced outside of the lines. David-Matthew Barnes makes every word and line matter, conjuring rich life worlds with his concise simplicity."
