She binds me
Hand, rope and look,
Stroked and denied
Brought to the brink
Time and again,
Her finger slide
Slick with spit
And leaking cowper’s

Similarly Different

by Harry

Submitted by Daipayan Nair

 

Hard skulls live in me
and around my home.

Earth is a lump of tissue
and it has always been everything
except Earth

when living in the child tissue

and when it’s someone different,
it’s still a tissue.

Everyone was laughing louder,

biting their lips and rolling their eyes

like actors in an Attic comedy;

The Cracklims

by A. Marie

The Cracklims live inside the dark,
In the nooks and crannies of the tree bark.
In the slits of sidewalks and between the walls,
Waiting silently for a trip, tumble or fall.

You see the Cracklims like the space
Between the books and the bookcase.
They like the hidden, the tight, the narrow;
In those gaps the Cracklims will burrow. Continue reading

Sometime a whisper
or maybe a shout
Occasionally quiet
but mostly a lout
Always moving
restless, unstill
Rising and breaking

Often alone, even on Visiting Day,

she wandered the halls in her threadbare robe

shuffling heel to toe, heel to toe

Do you have a picture
one close to your heart
Capturing a moment
from which you cannot part?
Perhaps it looks like mine
though I have many, truth be told
Ones I will keep with me
Until I’m very old Continue reading

The holidays are so lonely for so many. However, there is
always an answer better than taking your life.

I lift up this one who is broken.
The pain is too much to bear.

Wishes he were with you there! Continue reading

Too cold to sit out there

Trees shed their leaves
