good and bad poetry
by Bogdan Dragos

Well,

and try to publish for long enough

good
or
bad
poetry.
There's just poetry to which people

why do you seek the living among the dead?
by Bogdan Dragos

The old lady kept coming by
the hospital to assure the medics that it'll be
okay

"He's a true fighter," she said. "I know he'll make it.
He has won the battle with drugs
twice in the past. He'll make it this time as well. I
know it. I feel it. I believe in him."

"Mam," said the doctor. "We found rusty fragments

The Color of Laughter
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was in a love affair with art, which had lasted for most of my life,
As beauty graces bush tree and field, whenever hued blossoms are rife.

I started painting at a young age, and had actually sold quite a few,
And had held an exhibition, like the plum sunsets sometimes we knew!

While many considered me a success, something vital was yet lacking,
As a quest for sunshine gold, unerringly sends chill winter packing.

Being something of a perfectionist, I wanted my works to look alive,

It Appears I've Disappeared
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

A lot of acquaintances deemed me lucky, and I knew I was,
For I had a successful life, when all could have been chaos.

I had a wonderful job that I loved, making plenty of money,
And a loving family and friends, and my future seemed sunny!

I then worked at an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense,
Researching the new military weapons, which was very intense.

We were at the time working on a strong, invisible shield,

The State of the Art (I)
by Michael R. Burch

Has rhyme lost all its reason
and rhythm, renascence?
Are sonnets out of season
and poems but poor pretense?

Twenty One
by bella harrison

The World
collapsed at my undressed
feet
Colonised by saints and monsters She scheduled
I meet, distressed
I am not a shepherd, far from Heaven,
I confessed, and yet Unrelaxed

is my heart, blessed. Esthetical stints weakening
with every year that pass,

JUSTICE FOR ALL - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
by alexis karpouzos

In the burrows of the Nightmare
Where Justice naked is,
life watches from the shadow
And the stars go squawking
but Life remains a blessing
No winter without a spring
beyond the dark horizon a brighter day
For those who leave us for a while
Out of a restless, care worn world
Our hearts will once more sing

Exploitation of Art
by Ian McCleary

I came upon an article from Feb 2023 about the Joan Mitchell Foundation calling for Louis Vuitton to stop using her paintings in their handbag commerical. The artists work is often exploited by those who have little appreciation for what they do. This is just one of the many examples of that. Most people would see this as good exposure for her, they cannot understand how personal a work of art can be for someone. It's not something you can just give away like that. Sometimes obscurity has it's advantages.
