We Had Wings
by Rene Hunter
[author’s site]

Then, wisdom grew from fruit
We were winged and freedom
was etched on the soles of our feet
We knew nurturing green earth
and deep blue ocean fed skies
The pathways of earth and heaven
were known not charted
We stepped naked into the blazing sun
bared ourselves to golden rivers and
awesome tidal thunder
scattered like stardust

Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.

MasticadoresUSA was founded by Juan Re Crivello as part of Gobblers/Masticadores in 2021. Its current editor is Gabriela Marie Milton.

MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.

What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor. 


If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to gabrielamariemilton@gmail.com. In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces.  We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.

What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!

However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.

Looking forward to your submissions.

    I love this poem. Holly has wonderful and special talent for weaving words together to casts spells, and conjure images that transport you to unknown, surreal places.

    It is hard to say anything about this poem except that it is beautifully written. I love every line. Very visual and full of our beginnings as humans on this earth. “Scattered like stardust” what a perfect ending. Thank you for sharing this with the rest of us. Joni
