I just want to stay dead

I just want to stay dead
For a minute
the world has beaten enough
my eyelids
it also has torn apart my earlobes.

Comfort in Sound

by Jem Croucher

I’m plagiarising something
today, but never mind
‘Cos there’s every best intention
and it’s not meant to be unkind
For I have (as to be honest)
done a thing I often do
Been listening to music
and the sounds I loved and knew

The Monster’s Return

by frankhubeny

My little daughter goes to sleep.
I hope that monster doesn’t creep
Back to her bed to say, “Hello!”
She tells me that it’s wicked, though.

your drops of saline

by Singledust

When you hurt don’t cry
Your tears are pearls not
Drops of saline
Don’t waste them
Save them
For the days
When taste leaves you

A “Heavenly Healthcare Wakeup Call” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

sign from God 2

Round One of the Healthcare Fight is over. Lots of ducking and weaving, no solid blows landed. It may appear that the ACA came out of it unscathed, but remember, that was just Round One which is all about feeling out your opponent (or in Trump’s case, feeling up your opponent – sorry couldn’t resist, the metaphor just hung it out there.)

Remembering

Spiralling

by Jem Croucher

And so another weekend
and another week to come
Life continues, spiralling
with work and play and fun
And time continues marching
though at times I am bemused
as it can go slow or fast or even
backwards! I’m confused.

The Harrowing of Westminster Gore*

by Harry

Submitted by Peter Connell

.
Earth has none more gruesome to show,
Than this sick’ning vision that begs
the soul to go From this scene of slaughter
and hate Which doth wear a mantle,
implicate Of maimed and motionless shapes, over-run;
Ending in smoking mess of tangled Tucson.

Lonely

I Wonder If

by markfahmy

her

I still feel..
your lips on mine
as I held you close
and your hair did shine
under a million stars
when everything seemed to align.

I wonder if..
you think about me too
when you lie in bed at night
under a million different stars
knowing my heart still belongs to you.

Hate to see your photograph

What We Are

by A. Marie

We are heads clacking together,
Stiff blades that clash and shatter we are
Sparking,
Flint and rock into fire,
We are two wolves left howling at the moon.

We are a rising of a wave
And the shatter,
We move with the seasons and with
The whales,
We are thighs arching, napes cracking,
We are bones that have yet to die.

I smile at sunset’s throng of small songbirds
singing out while nuzzling their nested fauna,
dreamily chirping ‘til sleep stills them.

A “Real Deal To Repeal” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

deal with the devil

The recurring theme of the Trump Presidency has been, “What do we know?” We know that Trump is the lying scumbag that he basically told us he was during the campaign. It may be the only thing he didn’t lie about. He was caught on camera and tape. He just tossed it aside as insignificant as long as those easily persuaded by his hate and fear rhetoric and false promises of being a populist leader took the bait. Once he hooked them, reeled them in and won the election, America began what has been a difficult, painful process of trying to discover “What do we know?” His tweets are from The Twilight Zone. He is running a carny sideshow out of the White House. The Russian connection is real. But with regard to the extent, purpose and people involved there is still a lot of “What do we know?” still to be asked. And it is going to have a much louder voice that gains volume from the growing number of Republicans who still believe it is their sworn duty to serve the public and know that Trump does not. They know that the Republican Party is going to die a painful death if they don’t fix this fast….And that led to this……

Poem of the Day – Bell String

by paturnerlee

Bell String

 

Trawling levels of sand filled paper cups from stolen ships

Trips to the heart

A start of a new beginning; singing and dancing tunes

Balloons floating high to burst over purple shivering seas

Pleased to be in harmony
