The Letter
by Shreya Nayak

Insanely yet consciously
She opened her book
Only to find
A message from the crook

"I'm coming for you tonight,
All of you!"

Silence took over the room
Hands trembling like never

Night at the Necropolis
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Night,
Ageless and porous,
Sang screeches of fireflies of
Crescendo-diminuendo sparks.
What hour?
In the midst of the hustles, I lost my hoursight
Different, tonight, is my eyesight, seeing even
Through the darkest foliage of gentle, but sinister
Caress sway.
On the broken, cracked slabs, squatting, dark torsos!

Unconventional reflections
by Noah Trist

In this carnival of hours
Why the chatter my friend
I’m not keen on your tales
Life’s relentless spin I contend

Navigating these social norms
Such a constant, taxing display
I’m no mate of yours
Just trying to get through the day

hallucinatory worship
by Mister Rotten

prologue
the ensuing morning bears a cynical savor
a tangle of instincts, tainted and soiled
its flavor lingers – thus disposed is the labor /requital/
compelling repugnance, shock and recoil

act I
his voluptuous gaze;
/yielding honey/
frigid, incongruous flutter.

Evil At The Wayward Inn
by Faith Brigham

'No more boarders,'
the inn keeper spewed
raising her arms in the air.
People once came to the inn in droves
because it was a quaint little structure
with flower beds surrounding it

It stood on the outskirts of town
a darling little place it was
that is until the unthinkable occurred

Her dungeon
by aditya vats

Her ephemeral mundane attention
caress the enraged barbarian.
His fainting heart eclipsing her,
declaring hand of wraith.

Her pale cheeks almost turn
red, yet her eyes melt away,
In delightful memories of his
vicious and dubious hand.

A Dreamy Democracy In Danger
by Hébert Logerie

This is not what we were taught in school
Fights, mayhems, police arrests and brutalities
In the soiled streets. Compatriots, it’s never cool
To see so much blood and so many fatalities.

Competing banners are everywhere. A ticker-
Tape parade has gone wrong. Terror and horror
Got together for the wrong reasons, at the wrong
Place. There are too many obscenities in the song.

Seasons of evil - number 19
by Steve Solodoff

It once again has begun.
Upon me fully, all at once, without warning.
Though I should have known,
I should have been ready.
It happens again;
at the same time,
in the same way,
with the same sickening dread.

But I fear this year, this season,
