Two letters in an object forming two lines



poem || Edward Nichols


Planet constellation in a magnetic ball gown. Kinetic subliminal out-power on a Granium bite flying beneath the Earth; intercontrolling the natural born species of a faraway radiation sun.

The metaphysical abnormalities cascading with lucre. Feel the Trilogy of infamy and the Robot. Pie squared instigations a mathematical revolution.

Dr. Dent-These new magnets are really great; the ground cycle reveerb mechanism is quite unique. Metaphysical reversion outfits for cable receptors; now, tell me this truth have you ever seen anything more fascinating.

The chairs somanblistic tirade beams the light in it's omni-directional purpose, crosssing the boundaries of physics; rolling in a non-physical universe.

His psychedelic frequencies pattern set a stake on the moon; it riveted in down play sure fired torque driven displays of shimmering electric pools. Space for the electronique gadget designed to frizzle the tube box.

poems || Peter Ganick

two orchestral syrinxes

prerogerative with affect—
motion serves displacement whose foil
terms ossia that scrutiny
zoned and syllogistic.

another silence issued and tabled
while adored skeletons
brush the painterly code—
an indication where suitable
resists not clouds—
nor a toehold on
devolution’s moves—frailty exposed.

an offering so nattered
in sequence
residual proliferation enrolls
not redundant therefore
not equisse-blinded.

offerings of earliest gratefulness
once othered curates divine
some remainder to frames
so surplus exploits
thoughtfulness in momentum—
so accrual pretends waiting replicators—
vanishing points—emotional cranberries—
the occasion of arrears
tolerably culpable.

then suddenly an onrush threads
wide and cursory a tread impounded to
resilient notions marooning voices whose
holidays fell thensome as replacement
until vulnerability
recuses voices in their scouting.

multiples proliferate—
an inquiry threads a theory
for palms’ adaptable wizardry—

flocks at nighttime returnees determine
trends where bullet-proof
are summary distancings.

with broken openings—
fluster in no attitude
an orgeuil threads waiting rooms
from the sky
courting its priorities so well.

empty accouterments wait on
evening samples—
descriptions wash away seashores
lines for demarcation
pre or post what-have-you
collating those torrentous
settlements without wasted motions—
no palatial three and fours—
no longer—
intent reflective
of premises’ greeting.

a swamp trills in thrall
steering waters overboard—
the incurably keystone—
tolerable for togetherness—
wake to surmount inventions
suppressive or academic.

when situated
in nomine patris—
where sorties
variegate from amazement
not happenstances—
those recumbent wash
oversight to promontories vagaries—
preludes of a notocord—
each specimen deaf to greeting—
skills of shards parallel other
axles—their gradients
flail echo-free.

these issues cause no
intransigence—witlessly parochial
correction widely summarizes
front mottos—

a glitter of reflection on pretense
aside a river becalmed—
a sprocket ‘s returnable contention—
sooth variegated amulets
witness either silica or
surplus exegetes—

‘motions, all motions!’ stammered the flock
from a pro tem ivory of choice—
networking treads deftly on curtailment
befriending notions recasted so narrow—
switching to changeless possibilities.

poem || Edward Nichols


Germ whorefare sitting at the front reverbing string theories Sufforated metallic display, see through the darkness, the beginning. Creeping in a cosmic manner. A discordant manner steeped in strained chromosome, the seepage running in it's place. Right backwards the ceiling falls forward living living in parasitic dream. Metaphysical balloon floating above the water.

Interdimensional fixation tulelage resembling the corner pocket, celestial calculating beams, so the center releases the rising energy.

Wagner-Precalcute what isn't and twasn't it? The calculable numbers of the chomatic scale was aclaimed at the musical convention. I hear the dogged sidereal of atonal attention. The grinding leaflets answer the question of nature. The shutters run paralell to the paradigm, listing, hearing, hyperperception, hypersonic, subconscioucly, symbratic embracement of tools to the higher selves.

artifice of the space a large-scale
coordination past histories and reality
embed the web would should make all
except the world but steadily don’t tell any
cheers through the table preparing arranging
there picks something that lies beyond a worthy
cause lights place of the critic for a bodyguard
by need to tell what lies beyond the special
books and bare plots one who thinks says
the everwhen sky glass inverts style like an art look
sighs raise feet in cooperation with fear and gets tears
in southern return more read from even far off footwear
happily clacking away to a free egress and then say-er has
written above the entry on his attention dress fall in the bar the
bozo comes buzzing sounds of wheatrock from beds clawing the myths
falling from the seven doors of the historian's second most intricate fantasy

relearning how to spread
on all sides of the room
speaking like mysteriousness
magic sharp sound currents

how do the subcraft with deep denial

General latitudes horse aroundlanguidly enticing the bereavement ofproper

introspection.Unmtigated gall reflects the whole thing. Delighted

slippers reform a revolutionary vanguard.feminine side masculine side.

transcendental atonement seemed bent out of place.augmented

fifthssuperlatine polytonalisn rushing us before the youthfulness

Yellow engagement temperament allies with with the best SuperNovas' excluding .getting the lackadaisical strawberry fields

ninth seal opened forever lady space the directarate seals it with a kiss

tums stomache problems.Forfeiture include strange thought fields

Mordid generosity,sure they show you jewels.

poems || Sheila E. Murphy

from 'Toccatas in the Key of D'

Don’t sleep with anyone, just sleep.
I forward documents in place of each
Display of fact.
Give adrenaline a moment
To rush in before proceeding to sit back.
Quinine stamina portrays
The sum of personality’s inflationary
Case law regarding what?
Literature pulls in two
Directions stanced apart.
Leavens a brisk new feel
Pegged soprano prematurely
With the feel of teenaged limelight.

When food for thought is seeded,
A mind can be uplifted
To the softest ceiling anyone would know.
The best defense is a defense.
The major shift begins to dry.
One glandular opinion makes the other writhe.
Whatever pilgrimage enlivens will have weathered
Gestures foisted on the frontline saplings
That accrete the warmth of hands.
How many stories high are novice notes?
How many springtimes will it take to cancel happiness?

Wings limber down stilled leafage dried on impact.
Several reports later,
Integers mix well with rubbed
Words, sacks of peat.
I’m almost new enough
To bear this century.
The sticks draw what still seems a film.
No matter how creative, we align with
Hesitation and pursue the endless straightedge
Of continuo.
Apprenticeship recedes amid the darkness.
Long retention simmers the way rafts do,
Steadfast in their corridors.
Some plumes seem to get wet.
Modesty as an olfactory divestiture comes home to roost.
A silhouette in time staves off the parables
Still close to burgeoning.
Hectares eke out modest dues.
A fortnight is sufficient time to have your justice blessed.

Sun is sweating its indulgence. Clothes rival
Weather slowly crystallized as pace of sweet.
This fierce retraction of mudguard
Leaves a weak shine drizzled over forest,
That rescinds a cool encumbrance.
Admittedly, the cream goes pale on waitlist
Half imposed. I want a wild pen to intrude upon
A thatch. A furrow, landslide, safe sex
In latitudinous apartment. Steeds
Leave home without us. Savage
Play goes out for war. The little people
Render our collaborative incompetence. We rise
To the indelible occasion.

Pagination lies in state. The fortress beams
Collective bric-a-brac until some smoothness
Dulls the edge of pacifist divulgence.
Wheat germ plays the hood for folderol.
No matter whose bed, this is certain
Paradise. A sunful of broad lane-
Changes white for lanky weeds
And stainful tolerance the more you winter here.
The more you take back what you said,
The more a nerve is pressed. As if
To fabricate some manger dust
Of reason closely held.
To keep a resonance intact.

We sprang into a forcible rapport
As though our cupboards depended upon
Reconciliation. Some couples renounce
History, in service of a gentle future.
Instant replay is a threat no one
Would willingly allow, apart from being paid
To watch and catch and relay
In the direction of the skid. No loss
Is quite worth earning, and
The sooner something round is caught,
The better sales in stands will be.
Weather often buffers relaxation,
Thus preventing anyone from being
Too far in the mood, due west
Continuing magnetic inching toward
Pacific young horizons.

Sacrifice means you loathe a part of you
That can be given back.
These materials my theory practices
Release in water ankle deep,
As laundry. Sheets torn to
The size of easel pieces, smaller than
Hymns swollen with hurt that made them.
Why are optimistic forecasts near-term minded?
How do cares begin to while away
Our time, your time, cool butterflies
Absorbing their maturity,
With evolution pumping head games?

Semicolons lapse into will points
With a texture shaming to the eyes
As axioms have been bequeathed,
One’s innocence is frayed.
So many brackets, face left,
Match sparse quantities.
A chaperoned small citizenry.
Approaches unconnected morsels.
Whose pure, assorted pulse
Is given unconnected, to the various
Thin stems. Each destined
By pro forma articles of tapestry, considered
Text where stones connect to coffers.
The conch of reproduction
Strewn and watered once.

See the grain of lark go by
Just out of range,
Blinking residue of fame gone nimble
In a row of cataracts.
Here are my albumen underlings.
Moths that ride the lake,
Drizzle in a cup of moonlight
Bearing opulence to antidote the lack
Of reasons monstrosities occur to us.
We wear a favored nation stratosphere
To keepsake where the live ones like to stay.
All ration long, we lore our way to treasures
In the brine and bog of silverware.
Is this the coast reputed to be clear?
Tell every one of us how this relates to salsa
Noticed in a dream whose worthiness had gone.
I’ve kept my measure of the bargain.
Now the burden of producing some collateral
Is on your neck and shoulders.

poems || Jim Leftwich


sidestep clearing house no chance delirium
televised variable hatrack yard sales
quivering vacancies business as irascible
mouse catchers dream aslant encyclopedic
miniature sunburns annihilated birthmarks
nonetheless compartmental cadaverous
birdhouses diverted echolocation
mitigates daily toxins
once upon the gore ohm muttering during hamster



bucolic moonlit fastidious kites
arranged diaries uninhabitable disembark
how dare this brewing newly in midday
hurry up
let's gargle with sunspots

simmering berm eyelids meiosis
subtract hazards heist akin to radar
don't bet on it
no matter the sugar in a garfish hat

mule-deer cola
mollusk under golem
muzak of meek gizzards
etched limerick unmasked
hashmark gobbling mull

bit by bit the hidden valleys are diminished
soul is the edict of work


our none

our none lung gulls machete
what a thumb lanyard vestigial
cantilevers elastic and daring
dog days at the bankers accordion lore
belies dust susurrus ziggurat
attentive harpoon seance
everted evergreen magic markers
harbors beribboned assonance
not yet the advent of lotus birds
unclear uncial uncouth undercover unclean
vermillion vacation in Cancun
we are bigger than that air conditioner
such a camaraderie of sexy bums playing kickball
however lake akimbo muddier than the eyelid devil
what size is the sailboat
how cute is the hardhat
what kind of deal and why so soon


or radicalized

or radicalized darkness is imminent but tease
the nose with a hazardous den of needs
mantra lobes molotov cocktails at the zoo
quaint delinquent hacienda outside qualitative
windows dead-eye clarity and razor-sharp
gardening are splintered neatly arranged
in queues from here to India
so far but not so good
and not so fast either
dogs bite tire then bite each other
it is not the fate of the dog to kick the tire
then ride off into the sunset over Denmark
with a hat on like john wayne or ronald reagan
how can we even begin to believe it


poems || Vernon Frazer

Lasting the Laugh

Cheese-laundering epithet ladles
scream barker's tush. Insomnia pellets
on the four-ply footage denounce

cataleptic mortgage rates, expect
mispronounced baggage cart schisms
to predict a flurried glory that pleases

centurion banners of empires past.
Archaic phrasing in the moment:
time recesses its playground constraint

until class distinctions progress,
a mean regression. A leaking grotto
seeks a known genuflection, its patter

a rather substantial vagary rephrased.
With lantern button capsules bearing
water, no gunwale left to reflect on

surface matters, none so much as
concrete ladles. Wandering thumbnails
hatch before the rise of yeast cakes:

a newly prescient vision, jodhpurs
a tact against leverage cleavers overall,
maintenance-free cackling aside.

A Place of One’s Owning

Radio clippings barter the low cascade.
A centrifuge leaks pandemonium faucets
in mottled currency, urgent parallels cleft
as shown. The temblor brackets read
the floor’s vibrato cache under headlines
left to quell the urge for renewal.
Where vacant seats its overload,
a carrion tractor slipping past elastic
memories shipped the bottled martyrs
left to pledge. The ruminant oasis
flipped legends clipped as shadow mirage
on back order. Appliance as rectitude magic
unadorned or pasted as mentor glue to
lower facets afforded explication.
Their plangent sweeps prolonging underdone
infusion, plasters where diadems sleek their
slow fascination, near a shadowed ambuscade
shipping radial chart meetings. Huge as
emblematic coruscation packets darting
dead urges to toboggan souffle, poseurs
who distance head shredders from tumorous
avocations rip cartilage ballads from the shaking
numbers at flay in the peals of the board.
Anomalies lipping faster cackles clear to
starter tomes, grip readers by the home
cudgels near tracking levers that cleave
serpentine urges from pleasured flesh crones.
Verging, medically approved saturation pits
urge diagnostic threaders, eye-point needles
through varicose paternity. A lavish spread
eagled outward to semblance leaders
packeting the fabric called home to place
fireside crackles alongside amusements
parked in the neighboring pit. Ferret hues
come unglued at the stammer. Whistles in the night
forebode the telling murmur, a half-sea dread
regal as the perch of bottled urgency whose
natal settings cast in a single stanza left to graze
the stagnant meat of its heart-felt emporium.

Conviction Currents

institutional hot sauce reckoning
grenadines hopscotch nettles
at the forefront rampaging sonata hats
akimbo or double-diced offware
pension for uplift seeking a madrigal key
marking acrostic memory stitches
pecked against a sidelong zeitgeist
ranchero deluxe its garnished fervor
embargo stuffing clatters the mildew
ointment assures a polish as dawn
encroaches the medium spittle mat
shattered oblong grating conundrum
after mast polish inures the dated
regimen its sought-for outburst
against an obsolescent totem urn
martial carts flip under bottle flays
a coarse admixture in mid-chorus
reclaims scattered mañana sculptors
ingenue ventricular rerun habits
a coastal lingerie in galley pursuit
bending caribou nostrums to force
the hitching trine to angular caster
a reflection’s eye turned fixture din
tying felt to limbo swizzle tricksters
guiding the putt-line shift hiding
mantra shifts against the wind

2:16 AM

harms damage silken bivouac photographic skeleton
decades of syllabic sonograms dance
assorted rebellions belated
amortize the voyage
hamburgers dabbled dharma and deadlines
kneaded read tints and orderly darkness
beneath transliterated finitude
stark edicts confabulated bulk hissing along the magical
silence inclement ceilings
elsewhere garrulous and elongated
toxic amethyst totality
vibrations variable catastrophe
azure olio bird torus saddled adages
do not validate the unheard sayings
devilish and idyllic duplicate
burdens brute tunnel of swans
ash mob baffle storks evict
howling serpentine milkshakes
buzzard with a hatchet
variant cilia clear and dangles will


12:10 PM

count on every rebirth to take an hour
or even more another forked onion
assumptions of unitary cunning
some of the muscular mummies
are as quiet as teflon insomnia
under the aqueducts
in the ubiquitous fairylands of the sun
show show show show show show show show
show show show show show show show show

show show show

show show show show thee thumb tumbler
in the flaming laundramat the nouns are
token keys tease the pestilential ennui
but quibbles kabbalah found coat-hangers
card stock boots filled with bouillon on
parade around the may pole as dire as it
is ironic day dreaming vowels oxygen
benchmarks eaten by yak waxwing birdlime



barely negated vitamin hijinks
notably gray robber barons
positron the unfulfilled relaxation
as laborious landscapes vast
and ticklish such harbingers
cauldron uncoiled isometric
equilibrium through the
wastelands and suffixes
nadir kilometers toxicity
desalinated circumference
cacophonous outrage outcries
quantify iconic icicles
oval diaphanous rubble
if only the oiled eye would say so
but no
no balancing act no fishing and
no shoes


poems || Sheila E. Murphy

from 'Toccatas in the Key of D'

In principio, research was meant
To team with polished flagstones,
Tiny print and carpet,
Pink moor folding closed condolences.
The wreckage of assembled points begins
Rebuilding sun stripes, one color or two,
Upon the utile plants’ matte flesh.
Preposition remains accidental, various and
Crafted along ruthless premises.
This afternoon of rote
Offers semi-precious leisure
Magnified to last another season.
The jet stream has logged many hours,
Surviving relay’s mileage
In the distance by degree.

This is home, with fish oil, sanctity, replacement
Therapy. Abrupt encyclical disjunction,
Thirty years to life.
An episode connotes the space in privilege.
Pawns trill evidence of upper registers
Gone wrong. With nothing changed.
No partial print. No first
Coat of paint. Barometer
Of written pressure and precise.
The tangled ossified new bloat of ice
On different days. Some practical lamps
Whose glare goes watched over
The night’s linoleum, made responsible
For what is loathe to shelving Pavarotti
High into the rippling trees.

Birth glows within an afternoon.
A person of upbringing soft and slow
Who moves among the mis-en-scene with clayfeel
In and out of pockets situated close.
Boards rise, etchings nominate the world.
Impactful Rotterdam bequeaths apocalypse
To drown out edifying speech.
Our elders shackle many fellows from
A raconteur one may not trust.
Apart from silence there are options:
To clothe and feed the mighty,
To render impotent lane changers,
To coast through life in a vacation mode,
A remunerative shred of past tense
Seething with intent to fraternize
During deliverance.

Give me your blind blue nervous system,
Once clinically dead and then mysteriously
Wheeled in to what I am / immune to.
A failed line of sight where energy
Is passed over scenery.
Sunshine spills across the arms
Of hearts buried in books.
Stipends fall into unlikely hands.
Evaporation easily sustains the river.
Voyeurs take back things unseen.
Long vast space worn into steamed lace.
By now, narration clarifies
A distance in the year of talismans,
The few pitched crumbs of niacin
Separate from a hold that line approach.

If echo had a mercy curve
We would admit we love the night.
We would endure no less than fight song enmity.
To wit, an argument smalls forth what we are under.
Some days she swears there is a loose plot.
At chosen moments, she asserts
She’s not responsible.
And is apt to leave the fault line to rejoin
The cleavage where we work.
Retaining grace of tone fields,
Taken from a nearby Rococo
Attending to invention as a consequence
Of where the cinders cap the lot.

Carvings left by water lose the thought of water.
When autumn sings it is a flute print
Whittling shrill air.
Now radio intrudes upon a scalar silence.
Dance shaves loam of happenstance.
No bother to awaken tufts of camisole
Or crew-necked mild invasion.
“Such good air” the wheezes in the hovercraft
With bees and butterflies.
The motor sheds its practice
Toward forthcoming winter.
Cauterizing clumps of sores awaiting balm.

A remedy is one kind of neglect.
The cult of hero atrophies our unity
Until shared repertoire is nil.
One struts toward projected finish line
With steel-cut cavalry dispatched
Toward mother lode,
Postponing a full reciprocity
That might have healed,
Off-shore rim shots,
Whose missing cameo appearance
Revokes the show.

The offhand way she read a chart
Spawned virtual cadenzas of investing.
Reputation simply glows when
One has done too well.
A thriving comes to pass . . .
French word for mushroom
Blades its way into the language.
Inked lines coast to crumbling.
Problematic distancing of cross talk
Wide into the generous true woods.
Selective service primes prognosis.
What is time
But an extension of the craft of stasis?

hazardous zoology canopy
a hiss of tinted malaise
the moon wheat needles
lullaby tables laugh
diabolical and verbal is not vertical
polkadots decrease
no sun ax today at alter
their game eyes and their knee deep
simmering only negations asunder
belabors absolutist keening
cumulative hiatus unedited
never tamed eliminations pockmark
half answers in lark and bile
now and again ink inches hereafter burnt
below inhabited sarx cymbals largesse
habitual against nearsighted gardens
vast as silage gurgles
no such repetition as the tongue of signs
lasts asterisk nonsequential water mark
oddly vinegar and costumed severance
shamanic habitually destabilized
kilometers brusque scar of sea lions
quick as kinetic suture ebbs
surname haggle and hacienda
handlebar briers
barracuda buttered novel and unkind
diagonal nexus axiomatic roadmap
engenders a delicate flag

the taxi only comes once

quantum and linear laws of duration

but years

at last

driving through the liminal ricochet

miles of fuzzy mud and footfalls

shadows divided in an open box

a lake of burnt buttons and necklaces


plastic bags


traffic lights
spare ribs


nearly defenseless

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

Bark marks nabbed the tree. What do you know of time?
A datum lingers, though not very (limber). Trawl is what to make
of an old watch. There's a name for this. Using Ebay, you can
furnace through the parts. Neuralgia mates with absence,
sipping absinthe on account (of). A foray toward one of means.
(With) Legend has it you are brittle just beneath the cloth.
An architect, a moth, the sole decedent. What have you (been doing).
Whose interrogation mark is left to outer coating. Now is the time
for all (good). In a lenten foray, many of the hangers-on draped
weeds across a school. Where no one picked up (on) the child.
Inhabitants drifted through wind referencing the lack of stress.
And stretched their pale imaginations across tentacles and manacles
and mandibles and oracles and rinsed free sheets to wind chimed pace.
The impresario gave credence to vocabularies spoken in the way the
lariats seem freely singed.

Urgent care, an unguent, maturation can be dunned, Norelco animation

upon snow light

Sheila E. Murphy

Dangerous Crossing

Parallel non sequiturs
shed the flood through the parking lot.

Varicose mending ventures appended,
vintage bedding renewed the coastal parvenu
dicta vented, nothing gained predicted.

Starting geometric
departure, a pain of veiled suture parlance:

cross lines rend fury latches.

Where they meet
either occurs or does not
under the cost

of pendant blood
following the script past narrowed horizon

A mate of visions, pursued
or perused,

led the bloody crossing: renewal
as occidental cleavage bottoms
to bundle the gathered rest

In cord or fire
the avenue crossed their timid blink

Unsettled Music

Impetigo sunset cradles
harbinger’s delay. The slow
Rialto tuning stays wet longer.
The decay pitches forward,
a sonic relay caroming toward

yet. Another cavalcade,
stronger than any orbital
impedance on the forecard,
grooms an aftermath’s disarray.
The fingers toward fatigue
woes below sunset rising.
The end is near

the corner hatch. There,
the prophetic mourners play
moonrise sonatas that echo
behind the wall of a feral
ligature slowly tied to fugue
statements calling to restore
the oral template saga.

Hearing chromatic temples
chants where murmurs linger.
Canonical rapture etudes
the clearing. Its haste replays
the dawning pace of somatic unrest.

poems || John M. Bennett

Upper Neck

fondle the laundry while brimming
fondle the doorknob while spinning
fondle the ash while knowing
fondle the towel while sleeping
fondle the brick while counting
fondle the deck while growling


blot suit or dog my shirt
mount lung or dog my aim
blunt gnat or dog my key
fog ripple or dog my lung
rut lisp or dog my shadow
pile sock or dog my spit

The Itching Fog

bring my cord a hamster
slug my shirt a hamster
file my eye a hamster
snore my crotch a hamster
aim my drink a hamster
shoot my tooth a hamster

The Fortress

horse and hick while stopping
lick and hick while beaming
tock and hick while drowning
mute and hick while sheeting
gum and hick while burning
nod and hick while grinning


bink an blink the coatrack
cog an comb the sandbox
shim an shine the foghorn
fake an fire the voicebox
vent an vile the plunger
pack an puke the bumblebee

Dog Light

sot happy and a motor
jack happy and a stuffer
shirt happy and a comb
bog happy and a suffix
slack happy and a heel
caw happy and a smoke

poem || Edward Nichols

The Imagined

things are aCharming were the surreal vestiges of a yesterdays now, the knowing avd teh being-being abbreviated just as the facts would. Reality actually offering refuge,to aclass that was worcdlesson the subject; retaliating only in remission of a new lesson.The,the twilight shares the day and I find the consumation of it reliable and fanciful in its.Parcipals ran out as far as the astringent, a Canterbury yarn ran world wide.
I'M THINKING THAT THese damned things are imagined.

Only with the light of sychronization, the art of synchronicity. The jumble of tree pushes landed them back on the desert. The arc of the space of time of synchronicity seem to run through or find and seek out Dr. Dent, believed it to be the intensity of magnetism of his orgone box, always; gradually growing that led the heart and soul of life- synchroncity-towards, given him; paranormal, experiences that so oftened happened to Dr. Dent and the crew. Like now, they pop-up on an island,....the first thing they saw was a stack of very flat stones, incircled by a circle drew in the sand. Dr. Dent counted the stones, and that there was 23 stones, and he looked down at the book he'd been writing and found it was on page 23, he slowly scratched his beard on his chin. Dr. Dent- deuced if I'm not stymied. These happenings are very strange. What's more there appears to be a Tropical torm coming through if the pain in my leg doesn't lie to me.

poems || Felino A. Soriano

January Deceased

A long occurrence extracts
elongated findings of known
approximations. Wind wears
heavy-handed cotton
absorbing rain and relevant angles
whose whisper light dangles
accommodating swell of hours’
disillusioned meanings.

Silent, or, abridged

A silhouette
silver-once rendition
now-turquoise interpretation, pregnant. Not
with child of crying
with devotional alterations
made by fractioned hands
whose desire to unfold braided contemplation
rewove threads of patterned differentia

language of wind’s ambulatory sameness
the silver-once silhouette
wore jewel of blued translation
reaffirming communication of the tongue’s stilled


Ingurgitated allegories
pastel serene confined
systematic deluge
of au courant deconstructive
snide gallop
revolutions upon
recommended hinges
pivotal discussions
of the mouth’s curved
analytical absence.


Light, sprained
an opaque
unhealed ration
angles of vertical understanding
serrated realms of particular
focus toward
alabaster situation. Heel of
watched and discarded
and hour’s
compassion. Orange
coalesced fundamental remedy
watching temporal
devotion to inaccurate prophetic innuendos, recovered.

4/16/11 – 2:45 postmeridian

Ballet of garden scent
imagistic rationale
modes of tonal acupuncture

virtues of denial’s vision of
desolate canopies
housing smiles of the shadow’s death, reemerged.

of pastel
preludes and condemns Winter’s choke and incessant bore,
optimistic. &c
strums an again’s reliable
woven words and sedentary needs
conserves the corporeal foundation of this day’s
softened curl into
dusk’s soon caliber of upper stratum compartments.

poems || Vernon Frazer

Flashback Memory

Tough to beat
on a corona sled, the shadow
play a foregone distance

emptied. Past vacuums surface.
The girth of brittle isotopes configures

a stretched face
turning after ancient shards
to recast

radio amulet discharge placement

where heat weathers
turbines that spin pontoon nostalgia,

withering memory rotors
roughened under the deadening pace
to a moving instant: gone

Trinkling Toward a Twilight

an aching
pendant lingered past the sun

a random number slowly chosen

when shaking matter
relies exclusively on digital

spoken through twining nails

a solace seeking its elsewhere
foundation birth or founder shell
a riff on rifting granite

depends on
breaking the debt to the fingered pulse

Written in Stone

the barrier rose a frugal mist
in turns against the bloodline shore
its sequestered undertow

a churn toward memory
fixed as granite’s flow ebbing
a slow repose its yearning

listless memoirs unwritten
flap white banners across the sky
foreboding couriers on course

with collision its time carrier
broken open as a telling dial circles
twelve limits of its grim perimeter

rapping knuckles on the wind
