Afternoon of January 14, 2023


standing stones

particles of dead stars

fill the earth

~John Hawkhead

dusting in the grand scheme of things

~Patrick Sweeney

empty nest



~Rupa Anand

New Year’s Day

the pink flamingos

flap their wings

~Francoise Maurice

crow’s feet 

  the ink scratches

    over the page

~John Hawkhead

a bug 

trying to whisper

in my ear 


voice blinding newscasts

ear spit my epiglottis

until I swallow noise

~Steven M. Gerson

satsuma vase

full of hot air


~Roberta Beach Jacobson

The car’s cry pinged “unfriend me”

on the handheld while the influencer

drove social media blind

~Steven M. Gerson

wishing she could afford her own transfiguration

~Patrick Sweeney

no baggage relief

year of 2023

carry-on only

~H. Novick

under the pilsner paper roller coaster

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

six-pack on the hardback Kerouac

~Patrick Sweeney
