Counting Ten Mice

by Colly

mouse pict

A mouse chews a round hole through the wall.
Inside the cupboard’s it now goes.
It scurries in behind the fridge.
Then a ways under the kitchen stove.
Where will it go next? Continue reading

slutgarden

by suicidallyanonymous

He taught the dying stars
how to bury themselves
in the barbed arms of a cloud,
because it’s where the sun ran
to fuck the moon before sunrise.

Behold, my love, soon the sun
Will slip into the seas swells
Embraced, she’ll blush rose
As the maid upon loves first touch

God’s Idea

by Peter Notehelfer

God had this idea

It was largely because

In his abundant spare time

Things were running fairly well

And well he thought they might not 

Just run but be more interesting as well  

What if this world created ex nihilo

Could change aesthetically even

While it grew exponentially

That clever little engine

They call the leaf                               

soaking up carbon pumping out oxygen          Continue reading

Every Breath – a villanelle

by graypoet

Hadn’t tried one for a while, so maybe the mind will let it flow…

With each breath that we take
Life flows, memories are made
We realize our own mortality. Continue reading

The Winged Denizens of Spiraling Fright

Watch Me

by Heather's Starting End

Walking_Away_by_Gwendelin_Artanis

I don’t want,
To be where I am
I do not want,
To be here
I do not want
To be in a place,
Where it’s empty words
That fill my ears

There’s a cold nip in the air today
The first I’ve felt this year
At least since January/February time
Winter’s back I fear Continue reading

Waiting

by Heather's Starting End

Waiting-for-my-love

Waiting I was, I had always been,
The question was always for what
A moment, a feeling, opportunity perhaps,
While the answers, I know, I had already got

I waited for change in my life and it came,
Then wished it would go away
Realized this change, I did not want,
Then wished and waited
To have my old way

Looking Up

by graypoet

“When you get to the bottom, many times you find a hole with your name on it..”

Charles Townsend

There are times when you look at life
And wonder how you got in this position
Is it that you give to much of yourself
Or expect someones love without question. Continue reading

I write the words
As they write me
They want to be read
And so do I.

Oxymoron – Drugs

by Colly

An easy transfusion.
Most don’t realize this.
Drugs are my comrade.
A cure for boredom.
Appease my need for risks.
Pushed into this..?
Friends – found easily.
Walk by my side.
Always a good time. Continue reading

Unglory

by Harry

Submitted by Rohan Subba

Where is thy humane, of yesteryear?

The world so tyrannical, at its fall…!

‘Golden heart’ of compassion so sacred..

Lay buried down now, past the long ages.

The scriptures of ‘Vedas’ and the hymns,

Unscantified, unglorified and unsung…!

Devotion to a ‘Deity’ and its belief, so bleak..

Friend or Loser

Lots of thoughts floating in my mind
probably surprising the different kind
Yet it seems when they fall to the page
It helps me suppress this internal rage. Continue reading

The Old Poet

by Peter Notehelfer

The old poet

works the puzzle

Words have shapes

edges that sometimes

stick together seamlessly

Or spark like flint on steel

At times he may compose

verses as in a hymnal

begging for melody

Or write lines of

shattered glass  Continue reading

Colorful Pumpkin Smile

Something is here!
As the end of October draws near.
Does it see you?
With two eyes, nose and a mouth.
Within this field is where it will be. Continue reading
