A package of love by Chisom-Nonso Henry Chukwuma

A package of love
by Chisom-Nonso Henry Chukwuma
[author’s site]

You who chose me
When I had nothing
With loyalty and confidence
That I am a treasure,

You chose nothing
In the world except me
Hence, I’ll reject
The entire world for you;

You who stayed
By my dreams to protect them
With passion and zeal
That they’ll come true;

Among the things
You deserve most-
Crowning you
With stars is the least;

Clasped hand in hand,
We’ll conquer
With the will to live in the future,
Stopping even time,

Together, in good faith
Let’s walk down the aisle
To confess our solemn oath
Of love to humans and to God

Forever, you’ll become
The cornerstone
Of the history I’ll make.

ABOUT US 

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. 

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES 

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.
