HELP ME TAKE THIS MASK OFF: Some sort of secondary title involving Star Wars, Canadian Literature and the 21st Century
Firstly, don't write me back saying "is this for real." We all know Canadian publishing is faker than wrestling, so of course this is real. I am always serious.
I am seeking poems, short short stories / awful spoken word pieces / short essays on star wars, it's impact, lack of impact, satire, etc., cultural works (short pieces) for an anthology i want to publish somehow. i really want it to be Canadian as well. if you think you'd like to be involved, let me know how and I'll reserve room for you on the death star. this will likely be either a chapbook or if some foolish small press out there wants to publish it, but yeah, something fun, funny, witty, intelligent, etc, that would be fine. email NGM (Nathaniel G. Moore) at firstname.lastname@example.org for full details.

I was playing around with some ideas for this, and wrote this draft of something. What I'd really like to address is performing the Theme to Star Wars with my Grade 6/7 Band, which I did at 8:30 am on Thursday morning.
Star Wars Ghazal
I fell in love with Princess Leia because
the atoms of things are not themselves hot
Which makes me look fatter: space or time?
Star Wars is not about hair styles
or sadness after the story ends
sing, Dark Matter, of what is between things
or not there at all
much is borderless
Chewbacca’s hairline for example
I used light to fight
and was not washed toward endlessness
Skywalker, closed mouth father
Death Star, sand without horizon
the blort & blip in the empire of others
the story is over and
I’d have given a handful of universes to save you
