Outside becomes

a dark cavern

beyond cold hard

glass that reflects

my face, pupils

portals into

a universe

sprinkled lightly

with stars, mere

pinpricks against

my mortality

until snowfall

brightens shadows,

a clean blank page.

Commemorative Issue  Spring 2016. Charles Hardy

John Sibley Williams

Radio Flyer, 2016

A rusty red wagon abandoned

in the sun, dolls eyes and the green

rifles of plastic men peering out.

Someone has tied sneakers

to the handrails of an old

merry-go-round. They weigh it down

from cycling endlessly by itself.

Within this image millions

of pixels converse into meaning

like the stars that seem our witness

but have actually burned out. Truth

is only as militant as how it’s remembered.

I remember the wagon but now how it got there,

the green of my soldiers but never their aim.

And near the edge, out of focus,

an oak horse rocks childless.

SNAGGING THE BUTTERFLY by Don Russ

I afterwards imagined he danced –

a cat – mid-air. Not just that, but landing

spoke a butterfly.

From his loosed mouth

its doubled beauty broke, a dusty yellow

flutter of the sun.

So fragile a thing,

so expressed, the lovely world so worded

every end its own beginning:

falling short he lunged again.

He had to, it’s written-in. From shambles

songs arise.
