Buttermorphosis
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

I recall the rural life of the butterfly
Extravagantly —that proud floating mass of wings.
Her wings flutter from sea to coast so eloquently,
Yet silent with the muteness of frightened breeze.
They are banners with buntings of newness — striped,
Spotted, arched, dotted.
Her flamboyant life history, reading it backwards,
Is an exhibition of time and cosseted patience . . . .
The winged one, aged and tried, schleps to the stirs of a narcoleptic pupa,
Hanging on the banisters of a dear larva who’s egged on to

At the Cathedral
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

At the Cathderal
one dusk,
the general image,
that of receding
glint of the sun's lair

The cupola of the basilica,
the basis of its strength;
the idyll-lined frames
for green verse

AI
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

AI,
paint me Mona Lisa
without a smile,
no dimples,
without a brush,
and with no paints.

But retain her eyes —
they wink at me with Mediterranean lure.

Flag Bearer *Political- potentially triggering*
by Brandon Torres

"America, so good at killing, we do it in school!"

I hear they say; that the enemy of my enemy is my friend,
so when she strolls in with stars in her eyes,
the bruises of past trauma hidden just under her skin,
just behind the blood she now bears on her own hands,
those black leather,
waffle stomping boots,
with gristle and grime,
another victim falling to "revenge",

Now Here Comes Their Bleating – in Trump’s own words upon acquittal
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

So many words, such boring waffle
Posturing peacocks, whispering snakes,
Actions so twisted doubtful if lawful
A bunch of connivers, dithering flakes.

In the House which they rule
They pointed and frowned
Lectures unending as if back at school,
Comments unwelcomed, arguments drowned.

I've got Joe in hand - in Terry Fators voice
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

I have a plan
Yes it may be unconventional,
But as a fan
I assure you its success will be intentional.

Most of you may know me
My talent feted shore to shore,
With puppets real as all can see
Talking, singing and much more.

Here comes the medley
by Liam Dolphin

Here comes Mr politician,
Arms outstretched
For a warm embrace.
Grasping tightly,
your attention.
while he eyes up with his mask
your pride and profits

Here comes Mr soldier,
In-firm support.

Who's left but me - in Joe Bidens words
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

I know I'm slightly losing it and Jill sees that now too,
So all we can but hope for is to Bluster and to Woo.
What If I sometimes falter with names or something more,
Only Fox is bent on keeping that lame and pointless score.
The rest of my fan Media provides me with great flak,
While I air my inner Irish and repeatedly attack.

As to the clueless voters I truly feel for all,
I quietly do get them, as the choices do appall.
Trump is but a cannon with a worn-out rusty bore,
