The Circle Game
by Margaret Atwood

The children on the lawn
joined hand to hand
go round and round

each arm going into
the next arm, around
full circle
until it comes
back into each of the single
bodies again

A Girl Has Power
by Arshiya Noor

Burn brighter than the fire around you
Take what is yours with fire and blood
Answer injustice with justice
You said he's a scurrilous?
Tell him, "The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands."
Scream " Dracarys" and succumb the world of sinisters with your fire.
You're Daenerys Stormborn, the unburnt, the refuser of Patriarchy.
So ask the world to bend their knee.

One who touches your loved one

The Game
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

I was driving down Park Avenue...
On a cold and rainy night...

Smoking a fine Montecristo No. 2...
In walked some high society twins...
Looking for something fun to do...

Game
by Laura Kasischke

I ran as my mother chased me.

What began as wildfire ends up
on a candle wick. In reverse,
it is contained,

a lion head in a hunter's den.
Big Game.

Bigger than one I played

The treasure of happiness
by Priya Goel

It is a feeling of joy,
Everyone has, girl or a boy.
It teaches us important things,
Being happy gives us wings.

It helps me be calm,
That most things lie in my palm.
Happiness is a kind of game,
Often guides us towards our aim.
