Acetaldehyde Dehydrogenase Deficiency

by Nick Anthony

Corralled in the narrow alley
An incalculable mass of humanity
Drunkenly bumbles and stumbles along,
Skipping in hiccuping rhythm,
Belting (and belching) drinking songs,
With the flow of the fleshy river.

Castle by the Sea

by Nick Anthony

The sun was shining on the bay that day,
And in its radiance I thought I saw the way
To my salvation from this, damn lonely, place.
“Liberation” was written on your face.

You left the beach before I learned your name,
And the memory of your face began to fade
Until that day I found you in the Kyoto snow.
When you gave me your hand, I knew I’d never let go.

by R. Saint Claire

Sheets of ocean pierced by Titans
Channeled on Leviathan’s back,
Swells and lolls, crests and heightens,
Mounting Sky’s sulphuric crack.

by R. Saint Claire

Wings span across the sky in flight
Green, snaking slivers stretch and lift.
From murky mounds to peaks of light
The falcon’s golden iris shifts.

Saturnal turnings to woeful wooings,
Unrequited in a heart that aches,
Infernal dreams of despair imbuing,
Hopelessly tethered to past mistakes.

Ode to Freezer Drawers

by Michelle Sherlock


When I think of times past

Where larders held our next repast

Where mice crept in and rats could play

Leaving droppings on their way

~ Ode to a Porcelain Teapot ~

by A. L. O'Prunty

What scents and comfort abound
When gathered all around
Ladies of leisurely intent
Afternoon chatter, time well spent

Ode to a Thunderstorm.

by AK


Flashes of Light, in a black tormented sky.

The dark clouds hovering, like passerby’s

The wind violently blows,

Against your rough, tanned skin,

The sand mingles in your hair,

The scene more like an intriguing film.

Born from a fertile mind
Bloom buds of ideas
Playing a pristine song

An Ode To Mom

by Venkat

You are a beacon of light
You shone our hearts bright
To embrace the world with a smile
And make this life worthwhile

A paragon of love, divine
You left memories to enshrine
To remind of our spiritual ground
To be happy within and sound
