Morning of April 25, 2023

all the mistakes

I’ve almost made

empty shoebox

~B. L. Bruce

cut-off shorts

letting my frayed edges


~Kelly Moyer

woke to acceptance

a smattering of

distant applause

~Wayne F. Burke

waiting at the gate

arriving, departing


~B. L. Bruce

a breakfast sandwich

warm from

the microwave,

a portal

to this dimension.


home improvement


the chicken legs

~Kelly Moyer

Red crayons are good for

roses, smiles, fire engines

and lonely balloons

~Jennifer Gurney

grasshopper —

    jumping on

memory's habitat

~Debarati Sen

clear sky

selfies with a trailer

hanging over the edge

~Rupa Anand

an owl calls

in the middle of the night …

lingering doubt

~Daniela Misso


what is love

after war eats out his heart

and he turns away

after 14 months

of letters describing

things that can never last

until that day his ashes

are carried by ravens

into my back yard.

~Pris Campbell

spring again

spooning violets

into the grave

~Kelly Moyer

a parade of people moving

past my bed, the living and

the dead

5 a.m.

~Wayne F. Burke

journey cakes

i save my best stories

for the squirrels

~Kelly Moyer
