Careless Moments
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

I should have grinned when morning came
Atop posts of gaping day, with lunatics
Humming dirges of a broken world.

I remained glued to my gloom.
Rising from the pit of hell, I held
Concupiscent cats hostage.

The course of their waning speed of flight
Harmed my precisions.

The Mind
by Sebastian LeAir

Not far b behind the windows of our perception, you'll find a place without boundaries.
Archives, memories, feelings..

Endless shelves in which to store information.
This place, this endless library of knowledge in which we should actually call home.

Some leave home before adolescence is surrendered, returning scarcely for a brief visit for business.
Never recreation.

Others of my breed have never left the sometimes hostile grounds of our home.

Time
by Sebastian LeAir

Lifetimes can be lived in the matter of a year, even mere months.
Birth may be as complex and dramatic as a lifestyle change, or as simple as a new habit which burrows the larvae of parasitic decay deep into the subconscious of it's clueless host.
Death may be as excruciating as mortal death,
Or as pleasant as an epiphany.

Our relationship with our beloved time is reminiscent of a familiar couple.
When she is absent we yearn for her security.
When she is too much we wish she would finish her sentence and leave the room.

Regardless of how one feels of her at a given moment, we need her.

Silence of the Rocks
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Sweltering clouds above are in yoga
Below them, crags — large-hearted and
Deep-seated, with striated bowels —
Faint from the hostile shafts of sunlight.
Iguanas pray fervently through fents
Hewed by dreaded times;
So are south-oriented ivies — straggling
Idly by noon, they seek eloquence of
Humming-birds on rock-ruptured
Sequence of dalliances...

"Where do you want to be in five years?"
by Prem Sarito

I have accepted the universe is absurd.
Yet life still needs to be lived
(If only because better than not)
People cared for
Justice sought
DNA remixed

He aceptado que el universo es absurdo.
Sin embargo, la vida todavía necesita ser vivida
(Aunque solo sea porque mejor que no)

The Storm
by B4 n/a

clouds rain
eyes strain
through liquid lines on window pane
lines arc
mind sparks
seeking secrets in the dark
clock ticks
thoughts flick
philosopher to lunatic
booms crack

Harvest
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

The toothache of the earth ceases when from behind
Ailing soils, browned to coma, muffled air breathes . . .
Autumn signifies the yellowness of strife, the redness of soothing
Cusps and the flowering of weeping, desiccated grounds.
We raise decibels of canticles, wafting atop candle flares
Of seasons’ end.
Let midnight keep with us the lucubration spirit, when like
Renewed sprites, we hinge our promises on patented soils laid
Bare by the sputum of harvest.
O’ Harvest, hear us well.

I Was About Asking Why
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

I was about asking why the fetters are
Tightened more on our feet of progression

I was about asking why the bright day
Suddenly turns black as we approach the crossroads

I was about asking why every tread thrusts
Us back the winding way we came

I was about asking why the caravanserai

Vista
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Buoyed up by the syntheses of the past,
idyllic murals of green hills open paths
to a healing truth.

What say the brown camels of Casablanca
to assassins nursing festered wounds of
new Karma?

Yesteryears recline on the shoulders of
a greying age, chanting songs to a
