My window looks out on the neighbours.
by J W

My window looks out on the neighbours.
I see their lives in fragments –
Comings and goings.
I know their routines but not their names.
I see visits from parents,
Siblings and old friends.
I watch him hold her growing stomach,
Rush out to the hospital,
Come home with their child.
I see them take the baby inside,

Symptoms
by Sophie Hannah

Although you have given me a stomach upset,
Weak knees, a lurching heart, a fuzzy brain,
A high-pitched laugh, a monumental phone bill,
A feeling of unworthiness, sharp pain
When you are somewhere else, a guilty conscience,
A longing, and a dread of what’s in store,
A pulse rate for the Guinness Book of Records -
Life now is better than it was before.

Although you have given me a raging temper,

Captured In Confusion
by John J. Seto

Motionless slices of life
Forcefully reminiscing better moments.
Telepathical movements sway from one extreme to the other
As precious time winds down to a silent death.

Mental words exchanged at a blink of an eye
Creating pictures of confusion and insecurity,
Never feeling the soft brush of human flesh
Until the spell is broken.

Marine Snow At Mid-Depths And Down
by Thomas Lux

As you descend, slowly, falling faster past
you this snow,
ghostly, some flakes bio-
luminescent (you plunge,
and this lit snow doesn't land
at your feet but keeps falling below
you): single-cell-plant chains, shreds
of zooplankton's mucus food traps,
fish fecal pellets, radioactive fallouts,
sand grains, pollen....And inside

The flowers in my room
by Josey Barlow

There on the table next to my vanity
Sits an omen to one’s fragile sanity
In a moment or a fit of inspiration
Great happiness and exhilaration
Each an elated precious bloom
I purchased flowers for my room

Who knew the vase I carefully selected
Clear clean glass never neglected
Over time would transform to a tomb

Pig
by Noah Trist

Bleached stained floors stagnate in its eyes.
An eerie oink barreling at the walls,
To hung is to be more delicious.
This little piggy is less than me

A shaven beast waiting for the taking
Glistening skin under juicy meat
The pig doesn't want to die
But i want dinner

We are one and we are weird
by j d

Listen to my fears
We are one and we are weird
drowning in the rain
Two and two are quite the same
We all wanna hide
Or shrivel up and die
It always seems the same
Like a broken window pane

Wash it down with beer

Fade away
by j d

Chiseled faces, to meet and greet
Jumping out, beneath my feet
Tortured souls, of pain, and anguish
Searching for something lost, and sacred

Pain all in my knees, and my mind is just as weak
Glad that I can see, but wishing I could speak
Alone in a crowd just staring at the clouds
Deathly afraid to speak my thoughts aloud
