by Red Brick Keshner

Ribald footprints

of a silent, brooding zitar

rendezvous with an ebbing tide

recalcitrant thoughts wash away

along this sandy shoal.

Ruined state
by Luke Dunskey

A black sky.
A marble ceiling.
The crumbling cement cracks with the wind.

An old dog, with gentle grey
under its chin, sleeps on an
overgrown sidewalk.

A half-finished microwave meal, under
a broken chandelier.

Emotional unrest
by K V

My breathing quickens
So fast I cannot curtail
The rasps which emerge
As I brutally exhale

My pulse fastens
My heart pounds in my chest
Like I am in real danger,
Lke I might arrest

the tingling moves up my arm
my heart is thumping on my sternum
screaming to be let out
my stomach wails like a cat
every gurgle of my intestines
warning what’s to come

sounds all the alarms shuts down what’s not
keeping me alive
to go about my day feels

with the demons they haven't yet caught

Making the next much more powerful.

I feel my hair stick up on my legs and arms
this cold feeling of my adolescence fades
and the warm morning glaze of new horizons washes over me
all the things I used to love
The teddy bear that still sleeps next to me at night
waking up without caring
longing for that smell of sterile school air

i helped myself.
I wiped my own tears.
Plastered over fresh wounds and parts of my heart that were still hurting.
I gave myself time.
I read books that soothed my soul.
I listened to music that calmed my nerves.
I watched movies that made me smile.
Piece by piece,
I put myself back together again.

Why is there a disconnect?
