Evening of January 26, 2023

a love song

plays on the radio

an epilogue

about our train ride

where you get off abruptly

~Wai Mei Wong

sadness envelops

please stamp me with rainbows and

return to sender

~Eavonka Ettinger

chocolate sponge


and sensitizers

~Mark Gilbert

spent fuel rods

the mountain shifts

its posture

~John Hawkhead

fairie folk dancing

in the forest of forgets

 no one remembers

~Strider Marcus Jones

sour grapes

the last drop of

a fine whine

~Eavonka Ettinger

family photo just the dog’s tail

~Mona Bedi

annoying koi in pond wink of ceramic cat

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

in a crowd this existential crisis

~Mona Bedi

life results may vary

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

paper moon this temporary life

~Mona Bedi

Black branches of a winter tree

against a gray gray sky

gothic view worthy of Poe

~Steve Van Allen


first snowflake



I have

nowhere to go

~Dan Flore III

marathon race

the ex-front runner speeds away

in an ambulance

~John J. Dunphy

tumbling screams

only mountain goats around

to hear

~Roberta Beach Jacobson

some words

just make me itch

    head lice

~Eavonka Ettinger

mime mistake
the sounds

of regret

~Herb Tate
