Sarah Sisson – 1 poem 


Behind the blind subtle whisper
of my own intentions?
It is not stopping to come closer to the world.
If I dreamed life then my fantasy would no longer catch me.
I can’t breathe with this nonsense of life that has become right.
And life knows me well.
I have to jest at the world I receive
and come to believe I am sane.

Ken Allan Dronsfield – 2 poems 

Melting in the Dark

Mercy granted in the key of C

coffee cafe on a June Saturday

careless in fantasies or icy dreams

field full of Frisbee’s floating freely

geese on the pond chasing sailboats

tripping in the park; melting in the dark

Quagmire still runs searching for Lois

dance a jiggidy step as Peter frolics

seek forgiveness; tomorrow’s Sunday

busting a bubble from a pink Bazooka

Pleasuring rhyme upon a cartoon insert

begging for mercy in MacArthur’s Park.


Thorns and Petals

And in the final act

we were all just human

intoxicated with the idea

that love, only love would

heal our starved hearts,

mend our brokenness and

bind our wanton lust with

rose thorns and red petals.
