Sometimes I Have Fantasies
About How Great It Would Be,

INTO THE WILD

by thereluctantpoet

 By Charles Robert Lindholm

Into The Wild

Behemoth

by Renwick Berchild

To keep a body inside the ribs of a behemoth roaming
along the shores, we question this, this dying within
a larger shifting breathing form. And this,

this rolling, this captivity, amongst the innards
of a faceless creature; with frequent gasping and clutching
we tarry, and hurry along the tongue-like road.

I Want to Know Why…?

by Emily Page

I want to know why I wasn’t brave or strong or true,
Why all I’ve ever done is love only you?
I want to know why I’ve been so selfish and so weak,
Why, when it mattered most, I could never bring myself to speak?

I want to know why I walked away from the love I needed best,
Why you could always be trusted to respond to each request?
I want to know why I promised to honour Him and forsake You,
Why You later had to go and do the same thing with Her too?

Were we destiny?
Or were you just my fate boy?
Did I walk away?

In A Nutshell

by tjtherien

My entire life I have slummed and schlepped
I have dried up more tears than I have wept

I have burned more writing than I have kept

Take to the Road

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

Listen to the engine purr,
all that disturbs the silence.
See the bright lights glimmering,
beacons providing guidance.

I drive alone, late at night,
as most travelers prefer.
Lean back upon soft leather,
listen to the engine purr.
