''phases of the moon'' is a personal-is-political zine by [[Stacey_marie_skeleton_key|stacey marie skeleton key]]. On the artistic/emotional side, this zine focusses on the certainty of impermanence and the cycles & recurring metaphors in her life.  The underlying goal of the writing is to (contradictorily) record the sneaking feeling that nothing ever stays the same.  More concrete ideas are applied to political issues in an attempt to seamlessly relate individual stories to the bigger picture of the world.
