The Country Of Marriage
by Wendell Berry

I.

I dream of you walking at night along the streams
of the country of my birth, warm blooms and the nightsongs
of birds opening around you as you walk.
You are holding in your body the dark seed of my sleep.

II.

This comes after silence. Was it something I said

In the Arms of Summer
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

hot days unlikely
as colored leaves fall pretty
indian summer

though glimpsing the fall
late summer's still at the gate
love songs in the trees

beautiful encore
a rich hued, bloom revival

Creed
by Steve Turner

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone,
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.

We believe in sex before during
and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.

A Fantasy
by Louise Gluck

I'll tell you something: every day
people are dying. And that's just the beginning.
Every day, in funeral homes, new widows are born,
new orphans. They sit with their hands folded,
trying to decide about this new life.

Then they're in the cemetery, some of them
for the first time. They're frightened of crying,
sometimes of not crying. Someone leans over,
tells them what to do next, which might mean

Guilt And Sorrow
by William Wordsworth

I

A traveller on the skirt of Sarum's Plain
Pursued his vagrant way, with feet half bare;
Stooping his gait, but not as if to gain
Help from the staff he bore; for mien and air
Were hardy, though his cheek seemed worn with care
Both of the time to come, and time long fled:
Down fell in straggling locks his thin grey hair;
A coat he wore of military red

Why Would we Take our Wedding Rings off?
by Sharon Morgan

Our wedding ring is an emblem of our true love
A gift that we attached to a vow
Our two hearts promised to be loyal and true
Living each day in the now.

A forever, no beginning and certainly no end,
It is the circle of our ring that we must defend!
Endless love is what we both agreed
So why should we take our wedding rings off

Well Suited
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Having been unemployed for some time, I had a fresh job prospect,
As sunlit rainbow beamed jaunty colors, the last time you checked.

I really needed some good news, as my savings were almost gone;
And without the paycheck coming in, I could not hold out very long.

The year before I had been laid off, but I resolutely kept searching,
Knowing I am good at what I do, like nature is good at blossoming!

This job prospect seemed promising, but I was tense nonetheless,

Parents Tearful Farewell for Daughter
by Rafiq Pasha

To a place new, land new
You shall go – one day
Leaving behind memories lovely
For Papa and mama – my little fay

I knew this day, would come one day
When you would find Prince of your Dreams
You shall leave behind golden memories
of childhood, to cherish on reams and reams

Purple Gameboy
by Gonzalo Mendez

Locking my door before escaping to a blanket fortress
where a Gameboy waits beneath my pillow
helping me ignore the calamity from the rooms beyond.

Mother’s second husband,
whose fingernails find purchase in her neck
draining the stars from her veins.

Transparent and plastic, I tremble
tracing the shapes over and over unaware
