R

eleased by Paris Lit Up Press just in time for the 100th anniversary of World War I, Flying Home is an extraordinary artistic collaboration featuring 55 original works of art by Sig Bang Schmidt with verses by world-renowned poet, Steve Dalachinsky.

Digitalizing and colorizing authentic World War I archival photographs, Sig Bang Schmidt’s images present surreal vistas of warfare revived with intensely saturated colors that bring the Great War out of the grim grayscale of textbook history. Steve Dalachinsky’s unique, vibrant words, create fragmented narratives of the lives and deaths of the men lost to the dark hole of war.

Parking Lot Whore
 
 
like a parking lot whore
smoking crack behind the fire door
humming songs through your broken teeth
 
of beaten cheeks on dirty floors
among rusty bicycles without locks
dripping mouths and swollen cocks
 
in silent sunsets without lights
of asphalt jungles & neon nights
 
it was in this mental hospital we did meet
among your medicine and the drugs you need
 
to stop your broken heart from knocking at the door
of the hidden entrance to the second floor
 
in that secret city where we never were before
where golden roses were covering your sheets

Magician be gay. Woman be gay. Man be gay. Everything be gay.
 
He say you will I say how you think that. I am disappointed in you. What do you think you raised? How did you raise? You raised me. How can you think magic will make me not your son? Read more
