  1. ALMOST • by Wilma Bernard 1 Comment

    Sometimes I almost understand, Under a vaulted arc of sky Stretching over us like God’s cupped right hand.   Other star-dusted nights I’ve made demands Worried about that unconditional–and can God lie? But now sometimes I almost understand.   Clouds, hawks, space-stations criss-cross above these lands, Careen through heaven’s dooryard, while mortals cry Into God’s […]

  3. THE WAITING • by George D. Brockner No Comments

        They believed in the closing light someone remembered   Though thoughts of no long sleep after death   The night walk past graves of men bundled together   Someone would come to remember   Lungs filled with dust waiting by the moss-grown gate remembered no more   Cold dark nights they stood watch the […]

  4. IN SEARCH OF THE MIND • by Ted 1 Comment

    “You have lost your mind!” they told him. His eccentricities surpassed the boundaries they regarded as normal. Determined to get his mind back, he searched forest, roadside, bridge, cemetery….everywhere he remembered visiting; wondering whether his mind existed or not, because he had memories.       Ted, started poetry writing in mid 2002, while in […]

  5. WOOD TALK • by Jesse Carter No Comments

    Where I come from we burned Christmas trees. We stood em’ up, and lit em’ up. Christmas trees burn real good. I say ‘good’ and not ‘well’ because a tree doesn’t burn well, it burns good. Having sex isn’t well, it’s good.   Being warm by a fire is the end result, like a lover’s […]

  7. PENTANGLES IN SAND • by Chrystal Berche No Comments

    Gather the beasts to the elder city And within its circles offer sacrifice Blood into earth Bones into dust Flesh into food for the vermin that fill the streets We march on Carving woven patterns of runes into the earth Into our skin Into the minds of our children Darkened with the seeds of witchery […]

  8. BOUNDARY • by RK Biswas 2 Comments

      The hour arrives, and you contrive to flee the madness of the silence following you like a newly hatched duckling, a piece of shell still stuck to its tail.   You run down the stairs as one possessed. A tether around your neck. A howl spiralling down your throat as you gape, but cannot […]

  9. URBAN HERO • by Timothy M Daisy 1 Comment

    His was the last house standing, risen out of the cracked earth, a monolith made of brick and stone. Wanting to remain, a safe house for a gentle recluse.   And those proud and tired eyes bury a deeper wisdom, looked straight at you, dignified and settled.   Fearless.       Timothy M Daisy […]

  10. OH, STAR. • by Lucy Gregg Muir No Comments

    Oh, star! Beyond my ken. Dead light lingers in time long gone, lost to other elements. To dust and air, and memory.   The alchemy of matter, one becomes another. Blood to ash. Bone to dust. Hope to light. Unweighable measures. Thought, and desire, and love.   I, by flesh confined, thoughts confused. I, with […]
