Jacinta M. Carter


When you’re gone,
I feel lighter.
Not as though a weight has been lifted,
But rather
A vital organ

Jacinta M. Carter is a high school English teacher, but all of her time outside the classroom is spent reading everything she can get her hands on. This love of reading has made its way into her writing over the years, allowing her to branch out and attempt stories and poems in almost every genre. She has published work in Lines: From the Middle of Nowhere, Dream Noir, and Madness Heart Press’ Trigger Warning: Body Horror anthology.
