Welcome to Micro, a podcast for short, but powerful writing. I’m your host, Drew Hawkins.
Burrowers and bread crumbs, sugar skulls and birds’ blood. In this episode, survival meets decay, and desire gets gory.
Our first piece is a love poem (of sorts) by Claire Denson titled “If You Have to Die, Let Me” published in Spork Press. Love? Obsession? You decide. Enjoy.

Our second piece, by Evan Williams, may be imagined in its entirety. At least, we hope so. Published in Hobart After Dark (HAD), it’s called “Ted.” Enjoy.
Evan Williams is a Midwestern poet and essayist studying at the University of Chicago where he writes on topics ranging from masculinity to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. You can find him on Twitter at @evansquilliams, or on his website at ejwilliams6.wixsite.com/oneggsandsuch.
Our third and final piece, written by Ed Grabianowski, is called “A Little Bit at a Time.” Detailing one person and her many scars, it tells a story of an apocalyptic world. Enjoy.
Ed Grabianowski is a freelance writer and the singer in a band called Spacelord. You can find him on Twitter at @robotviking, or on his website at robotviking.com.
