Evening of September 8, 2023


I feel the tickle

of stars in cells

I never knew

I was comprised of.

daily bus ride

the tobacco stained smile

of the bus driver

No Mercy

Her fun


were laid down

in the for

mative years

of her youth

and honed

in the bat

tles of life.

~Kate Langan

where no one comes looking wildflowers

~Mona Bedi

shining the knife before placing on the table    divorce papers

~Arvinder Kaur

in the middle of it all stream of consciousness

~Arvinder Kaur

insomnia the world I have made inside me 

~Mona Bedi

blue moon always plus one

~JL Huffman

and he says he loves another version of me

~Mona Bedi


A year ago, she ceased

taking the elixir of air

into pink lungs

and died, finally

succumbing to the tempting

invitation of her diseased heart,

proffered over the two

indifferent years preceding,

and became deceased.

~Kate Langan


I am so full of noise inside

I rattle when I walk.

~Kate Langan


accidental pictures

of my feet

~Linda L Ludwig

holding the shape of his bunion grandpa's moccasins

~Arvinder Kaur


Anger all evening

eating up the space

between the brain cells!

Get you gone

~Kate Langan
