“Listen then,” I said, “to my dream, to see whether it comes through horn or through ivory.”

c.f. Socratesfrom “Charmides”, a Platonian dialogue
In Homer's Odyssey, Penelope speaks of a dream. This dream, she says, came through the gates of ivory, the gate of lies & deceit. Penelope's dream, we later discover, actually travelled through the gates of horn: the origin of truth.

Running from July to September 2017, Horn & Ivory is a summer poetry 'zine about dreams, heat & the shaking in your bones from fever dreams. Accepting submissions on a rolling basis until the 10th of September, short issues will be published on the 15th & 30th of every month.

We published  2 A.M. Interlude   by Kanika Lawton in issue two of the  Horn & Ivory  zine, Zodiac. We loved it, how it was sharp & sweet all at once. How it held your hand, but pushed you down memory lane, something other than gently. We loved it so much that we had to ask her some questions.
