from When Empurpled

just think to imagine your child laughing and afraid he does not feel that his fear is permanent think about it you yes you the human community I do not cluster sentiments of steel I am just like my father Owen I know who murdered him with a javelin of God to protect you pleased his soul ridded it of the fears returned knowing when to call them to God and O God how she laughed and told the show to go on meaning that she was grabbing the one mythical happening oh how that beauty did laugh kissing in me believing in God though I was close to the old depictions of the okapi of Orizaba bless and thank you her guardian a sinner counting on you journeying into Melaka just a dear servant unaware counting on you journeying into Melaka I am your calling by night and by daylight or at least so says you who ever closer to Shobra courted me arm in arm and almost to the bone my bones which were courted by the instrumental stylings of Ghosts and Vodka and by vodka endlessly poured until it was coming to me walking scrambling God revolting harking the tyranny of the powers that be and rapidly rescuing your victory and protecting you from those who seek to have you dead I take refuge bat at hand and ask you O God my hearer you mighty man near my homeland oh my thy might and thy power

Calluses pressed strings into music. As prayer to honor color and
geometry brought by this teacher lifted now beyond simplicities.
Each student in present tense absorbed the cello tone. Juice glasses
were handed round; a tiny group just stood, transfixed, hearing the
deliberate line of melody be with the body for a while. As all repealed
a likely speech.

Green and yellow Palo Verde trees, smooth-skinned, flowers from
the cacti all around

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy


Con Brio

Conceptual experience instills orgiastic tremolo no matter what.
The emblem of a blouse, some flagpole evidence, an inadvertent weather.
Who says blossoms lead a full life? All of the arithmetic functions are
performed, not necessarily pro forma. A story brings its tantrum to
these premises, and we decide, both consciously and its inverse,
to be affected. Our economy does not deserve the plural possessive
pronoun. The latitude someone provides is less intriguing than
the reason for release. Timetables need to be let go. Skin breathes,
ideas are revamped by creed and craving. Will you run away (or for)?
Who's to say the pockets will continue to be deep? Alliances mean
pretty parked ensembles of the witty charm. Alignment seems reduction
of the same old music stands. The rests within which one has dwelt
and can't recall. The divots and the divans and the near-miss of
a projected harmony.

Staccato quirks, the near miss of in(ter)vention, silos lying in the field

Sheila E. Murphy

Saffron's kind of else for now. When I repaired to Flagstaff,
sleet in tiny knives pierced dot points on the windshield
faster than the glass replacement salesman at each
car wash could descend upon a hundred drivers who have
no intention of reseaming glass. One slips into gear
and pretty soon people begin to talk. Inference, with sugary
surface, practices itself. As solos break out into northern
ventures up I-17. Avoiding Friday afternoons and other
placekicks in the psyche favoring young Mondays. Primping
along defined roadways as if jaundiced wings had grown
too close to sunlight. Logic entertains in passive fashion,
coming out in question form, unrecognized, undrawn to, and
still spun into a faultline that some citizens agree upon. Those
stalwart gentle creatures who ruminate more than they work.
Some overtones release their fractions into would-be
continuity. The pine trees at this time of year seem congruent
with bassoon tunes on FM radio, factory installed in the vehicle
on which I have a warranty for thirty thousand miles.

Remnants of eternity, a splashback, interference someone runs
as if part of the script

Sheila E. Murphy

poem || Peter Sherburn-Zimmer


Poetry Is Making and Seeing

'cold air
on the sill
close the wind-
ow portal of the day'

the poem has the pedigree of a mélange
or a stray dog sniffing
turned over trash cans
for illumination

our European knowledge of china has come via latin and french and at any
rate the french vowels as printed have some sort of uniform connotation

what is needed in San Francisco?
ask in the bay and in the tenderloin
a little curtsy on the sidewalks
of the financial district would also help
and a schedule of farmers’ markets throughout

while putting the books away
and letting the words speak: arigato
said to the bank teller and
to the broad smile of the guard

we heard the chorus
of beautiful voices
from intelligent women at the gallery
and were thrilled at our entrance
into paradise

all in the service
of ‘making’ an aesthetic life
in lieu of the ethical
or the life of action…
an either/or for another millennium

my friend complains
about eternity
but then writes poetry
and offers tea
instead of a deck of cards

copyright 1955
and still in print
making the circle into a circus
in a salient solitude of delight
and rage and looking forward to…what?

that tight muscle
in the bottom of my back
makes me want
in the middle of plenitude

the glare of afternoon
below the shadows sings
reminds the lazy mind
of skies without birds
nests without pollen
regrets without the pine and the oak:
a land lost to stillness
and a city not quit sure
it will not turn mad
with the next electrical blackout
leaving automobiles stranded at street corners
fire trucks hoping for a flame
traffic turning and turning
and relief only with the end of the day

or steal silk
for the bath
and let my conscience
boil over
with ease

I listen for
water in the afternoon
and am satisfied
bitter tea

Creeley made the occasion
forward
a cliff before
traffic
rushed beyond
what yes-
terday could imagine

someday
to sing you
love songs
in your own Esperanto

I heard an unfamiliar voice
say unfamiliar things
about Egyptians and gods
I did not know
and felt comfort somehow
that I too could enter
the world of the unknown
without tearing my pants

the naturalist
takes delight
in each turn of
detail
to what can be found
here
now

where weeds grow
trees stand aside
slightly

even lost scissors
come back
when I am looking
for a poem
it does not always
end
on its own

poems || Jim Leftwich


theme

beans never snap-on tools ladder-dung
is a gum-magus coleslaw gallant and
aglow
the law of the katydid is militant
snag gusto
stun rusts in Pakistan

05.16.2011




variation

stinks the same actual katydid
the stink-bug unwinds
dangerous positivist traps and tropes
since when does the able-bodied sinus
sinuous and sing bidding islands
angular angels bulbous bamboo and
buttoned wrong

05.16.2011




theme


inherent naysaying tongue annotates
angelic maladies mad dais lasts loss
alas in the shade of the sinus-mandala

what do you mean today is a gritty night

since what anyway today is is a player
piano sinus but that was saturday

part topical pose
part gnosis and part nose


05.16.2011




variation


backsliding into Kansas is no fun
no matter what the players say

one big slab of hidden maya

not saying that a slab of hidden

since when the night clangs knots

maybe there is no daffodil today


05.16.2011




theme

banana gamelan
mandible argyle angina
Gaia
goop
at danger
at graying gong
dial-up dahlia
silver hasten the sarong
Madagascar unmasked at last
the highlights of hindsight
pangs of spit

05.16.2011




variation

mulls lasting same
from the hinterlands we
sail into the shinto winter
all along the misaligned mandrake
by dint of tape and loss
at night in the sneaker-flit net
a shirt-fang coiling rung
same magick same game
same gasping mudra

05.16.2011




theme

sack of mash-salad lukewarm
we are younger than myself
but not by much
we could have been a salmon
or a sea-faring angel
if it is not too much to say
yes and paste
pass the black-eyed peas
is there any other way

05.16.2011





variation

snorkel at last the salutations
cut and dangle
cull mangle halibut cuticles
mismanaged by sea-faring
angels
we can almost hear them say
the past stops here

05.16.2011




theme

napping at the ankles
the detuned toolshed
the maladjusted ladder

05.16.2011




variation

anger detuned is play
maya in a kayak

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy




Aptitude's convivial spot-check happens in the form of chordal backdrop
to the lively fiddle moving west. I hear her brother has the same kind of
neglectful voice.
The curfew we are in the habit of obeying could be
nicknamed winter. The wine we use to baptise young adults remains
a blend of one known with one less so. The reach, the arch, parched
stacking of the deck remain semantic. For days at a time they argue
about nothing. Nothing anyone remembers later on. Thus, they are
left with a vague sense of dread
. Talk opposes sanctuary of
the polished solitude each seeks. One's best behavior forms this stasis.
In the moments between gathering and placing crops within proximity
of preparation. Daylight has been made for making via routine magic.
Tell me something, says the one in charge. Explain to me how principle
can be distinguished from a chore
.

Norms replenishing a brokenness, habitual as catastrophe, once
you get the hang of it

i rol up

i rol up i rol up
my face feels like my face
but i dont know it well
the days are so usefeel
like my pets in my mind
i would like to know you
i rol up i rol up
people are different then
and when we have the same
shapes i eat anything lately
now lets watch this bird swoop
for a while and ignore the cop
i rol up i rol up
are you bored then go drunk ten
years across china and don't
join the army find something
else like make up t v shows
i rol up i rol up
i wish you would call
my cell phone now but then
again sometimes i need to
be alone with the wind
i rol up i rol up


SUMASANONE

not telling no one would think about
my don't not when say yes
don't want they known
so much saigon
need two thimbles to clean
or symbols impeded

or my my own cairo
a song is not thinking, from
seeing running by them
and took them badly I on and on

mom will they when stole
not any guess not think about
say on they on when it's laying out
superb mine gone and took them

so much sights gone but side on
not pay jelly not elect why they know
and more ain't get on what I walk
and when money told hunger send the feet
then I like some why stay then

poem || Raymond Farr




Stillness Workings
I.
This foot at exiled.
Fascinated.

False postponed errata.

Annihilated radio ideal.
Whose mangrove.

Waves, on closed sign.
Beaches, a facet.

Continuously a third voice, contained.

All particulars.

On the current.
Way down, the hall.

Broken, mistyping.

The halibut kissing.
Eroticism.

Of maypole.

Maybe this time I’ll…

Register wet.
In valid stone, reverberation church.

A clear stoppage.
Or stuff Ovid’s into.

A pen name, I too much.
Took place, all surf.

Marginal, in advance.

& the lost, so removed.

II
Alkaline dive kisses.
Misfortunate alternative.

L’il stochaic.
Drive by, divided by.

Atoms got nerve.

Impulsive to impulsive to a pillow.

I nut like a.

Nothing so.
Smack, smack.

The vibrating is too.
Absence scowling.

What creak, a bone.

Twelve spines twelve.
& a half sizes.
What shelf, uncollected reasoning.

Point of departing.

Fracture reminds.

Isotopes Sheila.
Redone.

That the sound, the handle.
Require a touch.

Faster than.

poem || Jeff Harrison



Henceforth Amytis

overlook the full surroundings
& sink into Scheherazade's satchel
bubble up carefully & come forward
bare-handed as the brow of Amytis

now each off-hand phrase
has at least some warmth
intermediate enough,
Nebuchadnezzar enough

yes! yes! send me any flounce
from any scene! the trifles open naturally,
now even the sharpest use
observatory telescopes to see them

though they still come to us stooped
& obsequious, bubbled up to come forward
THIRST - my first vicinity was a tolerably warm
boot upon a road lately removed, a cynical hold upon

the lurking tearfuls... N E B U C H A D N E Z Z A R
finding prey with his forefinger, just another snake shifting &
craning to come forward out from the full surroundings, this
perseverance is a centaur hueless beside remains of fair weather

intone Proteus countless no longer, henceforth Amytis always
anchor to swim blood-dyed in intonation, blood to vindicate a
dog short of hands, someday I'll lay a pair of gloves on her brow
until then, the whole story is vigorous as ever

poem || Raymond Farr



A Plausible Morning

Anfractuous lamplight’s glow, to wake to

& to the head of the class

I do this eastern thing a lot
To monitor beltway hours, eyes spread

I rub off San Andreas Fault, as Cubism
Colored white, adroitly

On Chinese snow peas (?)
Ezra Pound cracked crab deliciously rambles

The green I seek is not the
Gross weight of yoghurt, minding its business

A pulse of a tooth for the all-tchotchke banana
&veering delirious palm prints

I alter gridded accolades, of cinematic Juicy Fruit
The gun is on cove duty

A tomato believes its role in cannery heart throb
Makes work like a dollar, or turkey in bubble wrap

Maybe open up the shed (tear)?

& glee, be sanctioned rain

The most yanked prism, pun de rigueur
Has nothing to strive for (to strike for)?

Broken yellows, & ambers
The daffodils of crazed scientific bureau chiefs, gone mud pie

Seize elements like auras
Of all senses, catching fire

Manage a dry spell, foreign as odes
Often observing, denial in

Most ghosts, a pantry
But there is a fourth & a fifth

Around here, the time
Acts out, a plausible morning

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy



We did not disturb the screen, which was already torn. Instead, we wiped away the scarred paint
so the eye would travel naturally to another place. Not as insects might seem to enter
the walled emptiness. A more novel seeming way to seek surprise. To bless the sudden stasis
with a lake nearby. We took ourselves into a polished vehicle, pearl white, and drove away
from water. Where for days we had been looking at the trees in little feather pockets lining the
water's edge. People arrived unplanned. People who owned places on the water where
they slept to rhythm of the water swishing forward, drifting back. The thought of fishing and
the thought of quiet and the distance from routine made things as simple as a rest that stretched
across four measures. We left the screen scratched, twisted, and we looked into the woods
once more before the engine took us back into the state of motion, where we planned to reach
a plane in time to lift.

On view, a tone, apart from its tone row, the intervals between

poems || Felino A. Soriano



4.

Legend of plural|s| risen advance
relocated
from the singular mobility of tongues’ inherent untruths. Thick

throngs remorse upon

analyzing errant reforms

purchased by power’s encapsulating species. How with
time do wrongdoings provide existential hope

pulsed by upon coverage of thrill do
whereabouts boomerang as slang karma’s clichéd fundamentals.

You bodies become silent|


5.

Tremors, recall them? then “fear, father, why do angles represent reality?”

answers

locate private missions

releasing tongue from humid mouth, poised though

controlled

answering swift from experiential hallways

lined with 90degree representations

blackened white renaming colorful positions

hanging, though requiring shadow to instigate dimension

against

malevolent gossip of the memory’s internal

theatrics|


6.

Street of herded modes
of
delineating species
ambulating
within
freedom’s obnoxious

paradoxical: paradigm. Alive sans sight of interrelated liberties

autonomic extracts form rarely whole

thus

movement, the truncated
faculty rarely realizes

intentional measures

of the spontaneous ballads’ whispering welcome|


7.

Partitions [oscillate]
[menace]
combining data of exalted manifestations
collating rogue or denied
collaborative EXCESS—


portions of whole nuances gradate functionality of a moment’s

sustained memorable decay:

of the death delivered holiday fulcrum future

relaying memory of penultimate breath, etched l i f e

prior
the last of the life (then, sans life)

victim of huge or miniscule /perspectIve/

contributory demand of elongated fragmentations:|


8.

themes require incessant knowledge of their intuitive particles. of radiant specialized devotion to unabridged salient focus. globes of radiant bulbs rest on a window of against familial frustration. a handful of thus becomes near a defiant ending, but then, adlibs workings into dissection’s fascination with destructive aspectual guidelines of pseudo-science. among guideposts, thrust into flat-footed trust; impulse: reactionary: fathoms: opportune metaphor grips the spine of a moment’s misleading intuition|

poem || Edward Nichols



synthetic soul

...Crustaceans cliged to the Spatial Frequencies,and, myriads kaleidscopic clours filled theair.Summation Overlords anti-gravity,Jackson Pollocks
buckets of paint,paintig dreams.Analyticle provocation angles at the window on the ceiling. Wondrous proposals see the flashlight at the end of the road.

Sure the trilogy of infamy stays in KRSNA consciousness.Premature shine blades sign the glimmer on the Golden path.

Going through it backwards ,a summarie is in the calling.Fuzz retardant jocular vein mimicing theartificial horticuculture displaying tommy guns at the locality of a distance. River flowing gackwards defensive energyREproduces farflung notions.Synthetic soul.
Wagner-Critical assumptions.Deranged to see that the only thing that performs in the fashion if reality,teir control becoming epidemic
intheir dialectable formations. The culture of our society is flooded

poem || Raymond Farr



With A Supplicant's Ease

Organized around this, a plane flew
A view of char, spat sitting

The beer green, a tea envoy
To queer China, burlesque-like

Toucan touched by, plaid nectar sophist
Machinist to uphold

Cratered-like, as in hollow
Hello, are you pear?

To believe scan
Upwards of 100 grand, a totem particulate

Oft crunchy, patella for sale
Has spurs, involuted poetics

Inhabit surface
Like a kingfisher, of splices, ornithology

To the grave site, a mirror
In blue sequin butter dish, of lovers’

Gonniff-spires, trotting out
Bladderwort, too frequent too

Apprehensive stillnesses, a buck is a
Dollar, my dear is a pawn

A dollar Zagnut a
Perfect allusion, sane, in part distant

Or all about sky line
A fly is a yacht, heavy to the nightmare

A Shelley of cinders, on page one I lop
In magic, an ode

Notable few, a crow on
A ton, as in fence post, a line

Re-contained, ABABABBA etc
The kicking one, her powder

post-impression

irate from things occasionally arcane
but rarely arrant misanthropic rooting
out the hubris narcissists unearth
in person from this mess as if your haven's
flown and elsewhere find your cohorts spent
a night's stint filling up the new beer mugs
the inn's old guests with pale engendered fierce
tapping by high jacked sources thoughtfully
exacerbates the easily provoked to
anger anticipating rainworms from
the dank deciduous dirt averts the reams
of strange denatured things to wed unstrung
edges a superego goaded exiled
vision to no numinous straw hat

Jasmine white tea eases off the gold-inflected rush of masculine vibrato.
His forearms come to mean the whole Romantic period. I leave the
precious metal in its case. From kitchen's white, songbirds define
late-spring, in close succession. A pencil moves against the page, fills in
each regulation square. How thin the residue, gentility received from silken
haze. Small sips enfold a choice upon the threshold of becoming
space. A moment to myself. Some syllables, one breath each. No shadow
of the thing. The thing itself. Smooth table, unsourced light, beyond
vocabulary of one tone.

All at once, at once, just this

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy



Spaces between saplings, and the flow-through of thin butterflies.
A respite dawns on place, insomnia the color charcoal, holds.
As if an invocation, practice rooms release the wrinkled versions
of etudes as preface to dry sun. The nerves do what they must,
connect with other nerves within muscular homesteads. How to walk
is music of intention. Poured across each tangible, beyond imagined
likeness. A numbered print to go.

Place, restored granule by granule, imparting gradually a whole

Sheila E. Murphy
