Morning of June 27, 2023


Truth is a bird smashing into a window.

~Wolfgang Wright



Winged wonder

grabbing earrings,

fluttering up

to sit on wire,

daring me to

climb to heights

and use my cutters.

I refuse, I choose

to leave home

hoopless.

~Nolcha Fox



She giraffes her head

above the hedge,

listening to her neighbors.

They look her way,

she giraffes her neck,

as if she’s eating leaves.

~Nolcha Fox



tightrope walker

meets past and future

in the middle

~Stephanie Zepherelli



Death be not proud.

Death be not.

Death be.

Death.

~Noah Berlatsky



Dead


turtle in road

we stopped - she ran out

Too late, shell cracked

it was dead - moved to roadside


No rescue this time

just a gentle word - a quiet end

~Julie A Dickson



dough kneading

fold after fold

the layers of my thought

~Fran├žoise Maurice



Gambling


I bet on myself

And I lost me

 

I bet on my job

And I lost it

 

I bet on my girl

And I lost her

 

So I bet on the world

And all was lost

~Wolfgang Wright



The Rice Effect


What makes you think i am human?

the nap post lunch when i was a child:

a portal to different versions of me—


I devoured them all, so here I am a woman

young and fit by imagination running wild

on a bowl of rice to set the kraken free.

~Lorelyn De la Cruz Arevalo



Extinction


Maybe the dodos were just tired of it all.
