Five A.M. – Lucy (of Lucy’s Works)

my own deathvineyards of moons,a shallow depthof the sea, Venus sinks,I drowned and criedin my sleep, died like the ocean,born in splitminds,like the magentaof mother’s womb; a vortex of nothingfair and bonyfor the ghostof mine does not grieve these amputations of mind;absence of the moon’s bare-bones, I see the lizard limbsof the moonrise as IContinue reading “Five A.M. – Lucy (of Lucy’s Works)”

Copenhagen – G. Paul Randall (of Starfish Sutra)

Light particles already waved their goodbye as apparent effects when they entered the eye See the studious chaps when the functions collapse asking who, what and where, also why Probability means what it means when it does but cannot when it probably doesn’t Does not at all mean the experiment seen was such, when itContinue reading “Copenhagen – G.

Poem – Summer storm – Shawn L. Bird

This air is thick enough to drown inWading through your wordsLightning flashes in the hills like myanxiety after the press conference.Summer storm raging.They announce back to school plans.I’m watching the hills for forest fires,fearing the burning.Brief respite: rain splatters on the back deck,before oppression descends again,and our power goes out. at: https://shawnbird.com/

Reliance – Writer in Retrospect

There is anger in your chidings;Worry in your voice.When life sends out its tidings,What will be my choice? Will I make a grand mistakeAnd then come crawling back to you?Is it more than you can takeThat I’m not one, but two? We’re like Buffy and Giles,Or like the Winchester brothers:We share tears and smilesUntil itContinue reading “Reliance – Writer in Retrospect”

Poem: Reading Courageously – B Gourley

https://berniegourley.com/ If you’ve never been incensed,challenged, or nauseous —your reading is too safe, puny,and far, far too cautious. Reading should be a courageous actthat threatens all you know.It should shove your feet into shoesfar different from your own. If you want your world unchanged,T.V. is right for you.Books will insist you be torn a-part andContinue reading “Poem: Reading Courageously – B Gourley”
