    Marie C Lecrivain is the executive editor and publisher of poeticdiversity: the litzine of Los Angeles, a jewelry designer, and a writer in residence at her apartment.
    Her prose and poetry have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies, including: The Los Angeles Review, Nonbinary Review, Gargoyle, Pirene's Fountain, Orbis, A New Ulster, and others.
    Marie's newest poetry chapbook, Fourth Planet From the Sun, will be published in 2020 by Rum Razor Press. She's an associate fiction/essay editor for The Good Works Review, and the curator of several anthologies including Octavia's Brood: Words and Art inspired by O.E. Butler (© 2014 Sybaritic Press), Rubicon: Words and Art Inspired by Oscar Wilde's "De Profundis" (© 2015 Sybaritic Press), and Gondal Heights: A Bronte Tribute Anthology (© 2019 Sybaritic Press).
    Marie's avocations include photography; meditation; Libers CCXX and XV; marmosets; Christopher Eccleston, H.P. Lovecraft, and Sean Bean (depending on what day of the week it is); her co-owned cat Guinness; misfit and vintage dolls; the number seven, and sensual tributes upon her neck from male artists-except male poets, who only write about it.

    "Writing is like having sex with a beautiful freak; adventurous and uncomfortable to the extreme." - m. lecrivain 2004

L.A. Driver

turn on the car, crank up a tune
to submerge the fact that quite soon
your morning drive will be consumed
in a deluge of wind and rain

traffic stalled, you grumble and swear
your words fall into empty air
and for certain, the gods don't care
in a deluge of wind and rain

tempus fugit - your anger grows
as the glacial commute's repose
accumulates more ebbs than flows
in a deluge of wind and rain

and you, foolish Angelino
passing by a stalled Torino
middle finger the El Nino
in a deluge of wind and rain

and now there's no cause to complain
as a bullet pierces your brain
and you become a human stain
in a deluge of wind and rain
