Do You Know
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Do you know how much I love you
Even though we live apart...
Do you know how much I miss you
And always have right from the start...

I’m sorry your Mom and I used to argue...
But there’s one thing on which we both agree...
We truly love you with all our hearts...
You mean the world to her and me...

Song for Baby-O, Unborn
by Diane di Prima

Sweetheart
when you break thru
you'll find
a poet here
not quite what one would choose.

I won't promise
you'll never go hungry
or that you won't be sad
on this gutted

To All The Mother’s Around The World...
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

You wake me with a hug...
As the sun begins to rise...
You ask if I slept well...
Wipe the sleep from my eyes...

You dress me for school...
In all my favorite clothes...
You tell me I look just perfect...
As only a loving mother knows...

Pity
by Camille Dungy

Christ bore what suffering he could and died
a young man, but you waited years to learn
how to heal. Only when you could did you
touch the man whose body blistered for yours.

You posted him no news for sixteen terms,
then just a signed graduation notice.

The letter he wrote that week asked only,
Now that your books are closed, can boys come in?

Honey
by Arielle Greenberg

I am three months out and six to go,
stuffing my plastic Superball body with the salt
& twang of crackers die-cut into the shapes of fish.
God forsakes me when I forsake him
but mostly he's much kinder, as is his duty:
I am radiant, people tell me, and have no hives,
except the swarm of gold bombs biting its way
into my sticky hollow. And I don't mean sex.
I am just a menagerie for bright orange creatures.
Even my dreams are godless (and full

Mama
by Priscah mutswenje

In the tapestry of life, a beacon so bright,
A mother's love, an eternal light.
Oh, gentle guardian of the midnight moon,
In your embrace, a timeless tune.

In the cradle of your arms, we find solace,
A sanctuary where love has no malice.
With tender whispers, you mend each scar,
A healer, a guide, our North Star.

Run
by Kayla Mumford

I love you big
I built a whole world for you
I chose people
made them audition just to
be in your life
I paved paths and roads so you’d
know exactly where to go
So you’d come home everyday
To me
So you would like the same people

We Need To Teach Our Children
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

The children are our future...
We need to teach them all...
We need to show them how to be kind...
To help others if they should fall...

It’s the adults from which our kids learn...
We need to teach them to not judge others...
To teach our children to be tolerant...
To accept all our sisters and brothers...
