Hypocritical Oath

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Not just anyone can kill a baby;
It takes a degree to commit that crime.
The doctor’s conscience will hurt him—maybe,
But the guy on the street will do some time.

In Utero

by Angela Umphers Rueger

I know a little lady
Who lives in a very little house.
She sleeps a lot, but when she’s awake,
She moves about, kicking the walls.

A whale made with clay,

Original, free-handed.

Blowhole, eyes, mouth,

Nightlight shines through.

Poem by Wendy Norman

It’s warm inside with muted song
My mama purrs this is where you belong

You dream of me to be unfurled

Swooshing waves of fluid to resist
I hear your heart pounding deep
My life depends on this drum beat

Loony eyes, jingle

Jives, twirls around,

Head spins round,

Well worth,

The Day of Fatherhood

by Venkat

the happiness of a day in May

bells were ringing in my ears
and eyes swelled with joyful tears

Late at night I still think of you
                 and the dreams that never came true,
I think of a love not fulfilled
                  there’s a sting of a pain that will not heal.
