  1. 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 […]

  2. CEMETERY AT NIGHT • by George D. Brockner 4 Comments

      Once I reached the top of the hill it took so long to climb, my shadow clawed at the latent gate from the crystal line, a yellow moon banished the silent crow from its perch   He died when the leaves were turning brown they fell, leafed apart, then gathered  ’round him I placed the broken […]

  3. BURIED IN A RAINBOW • by Sy Roth No Comments

      Broken morning on Pacific Coast Highway 1. Fog wall built around us like a gorilla cage, insides floating in a sera of dark coffees to calm the smog of our beings.   The ghostly-bent Cypress tree loomed like a shade rising from the sea. Parlor games play out in Es-curves, shrouded figures leer in […]

  4. ANIMALCULE • by Sy Roth 3 Comments

    I thought I caught something there out of the corner of my eye a dancing creature at one-hundred-times magnification.   I stared, found a thing phantasmagoric Microscopic, a devilish imp, terpsichorean toe-tapper nestled in the corner of the glass plate shadowless amoeba. alone   Doing a finger-snapping jig, joyful hora in tight, neat circles, to […]

  6. INVISIBLE • by Sy Roth 2 Comments

      Trust the esse, they say– Adrift, non-corporeal on an ormolu throne making judgments.   Crown it with a mist of unspoken words etched in the ears of those who choose to hear.   Expect verities from the fog, a steel-toed essence that kicks a hole where none existed.   Follow the rhythmic prancing of […]

  7. TESSELLATION • by Pravin Thirmal 3 Comments

      Are you sure that a floor can’t also be a ceiling? — M.C. Escher   Moon plops into pond and dazzles away to a million baubles that   carps dart to gobble, eyes mad with clouds. Mouths full, they bloom arms, fling up, catch as stars   in sky’s far creases. Some blacken on […]

  8. TERCER OJO • by Melanie Browne 3 Comments

      They cut out our third eye, and left it in the subways, or in the back of a taxi, we knew something was missing, the deja-vu that never came to fruition, a name that didn’t quite match a face, we cut words out of the newspaper and glued them to our coffee cups, sometimes […]

  9. THE YOU-ME • by Fiona Ritchie Walker No Comments

      Didn’t we? No, we never have.   Strangers hug me, stiffen. The other shoulders are not the same   but mouth, eyes. Apparently we could be twins.   Yesterday I thought I saw the you me on the 10A bus.   You’d borrowed my red felt jacket, kept your nose in a book   […]

  10. ELDRITCH • by Roy Sutirtha 2 Comments

      Beyond the rectos and versos – all frail yellowish pages still bear the same old smell.   But over the touchscreen no silver worm scuds anymore across the e-books – they all were debugged long ago.     Roy Sutirtha’s poems have been published in The Cynic, Ascent Aspirations, Erbacce, Neon Highways, Every Day […]
