aren't we all one head trauma away from him?
by Bogdan Dragos

The soul must know something
that the mind
can’t comprehend

That’s what they said when
they watched him
from afar

He slept under the bridge
at night

Our World, Our pain, Our remedy
by Richie Kharis

On one count in our world where remedies are wanted
Yet vessels are found with no still soul
So much Pain is communicated in silence within the nation
but only among the likes that can understand its notion

The birds are crying for their safety yet standing on a dying tree
The fetus is kicking in the womb of a mother seeking a hideout at gunpoint
The children are struggling to sleep while their parents stand and watch
The authorities are calling for votes from a hungry nation with no peaceful homes

Death is Optional
by Scott Biggerstaff

I saw a lone walker once
Left hanging like a high five
Bottom of some steps
Leading to a hospital

I joked with someone near
“Seen any flaming chariots swoop by?”
They didn’t get it
Or maybe they did

The Powerless
by Louis Zo

We were born into this---
toils of tangled gods’ maws
gnawing us raw
as we wiggle and crawl
on top of each other
like fish out of water.

Nothing sprouts from our barren faces
no eyes to cry, no mouth to shout
and wail as the gods’ acid spit flays us alive,

Blue Roses
by Yoko Fushigina

Long-long ago, as the ballad recalls,
In the castle with ivy woven in walls,
Under dark velvet skies, in the eye of the Moon
With sweet-scented fragrance blue roses bloomed.
Dare not to come close to the sharp spikes of white
For vermilion potion is kept in inside.
In those azure bushes, with hearts in a hand
A couple of lovers had found their end.
This story is ancient, as old as can be,
But the roses bore it for you and for me...

Aborted Blooms
by Lyon Erkst

A strange silhouette looms over a budding seed,
Its caressing hand pressing downward
Is a confusion of acid smoke.
The small stem writhes within the soil as
Ethereal mist gathers above.

Yet within a lapse of inattention, the stem propels through.
A unique flower is born in the garden of aborted blooms.

Twisted creature, her stem is rotten.

Wounded Wings (The Agony That We Cannot Conceal)
by Oscar Auliq-Ice

You constant friend,
A presence that seems to never end.
You come in waves, you come in force,
A relentless feeling, a brutal source.

You are the thorn in every rose,
The cruel twist in life's repose.
You are the wound that won't heal,
The agony that we cannot conceal.

A Weight That Never Lifts
by Oscar Auliq-Ice

Pain, my constant companion
You cling to me like a shadow
A weight that never lifts
An unwelcome guest in my soul

You pierce me with your sharp claws
And gnaw at me with your teeth
You consume me with your fire
And drown me in your seas

Mass Exodus: Back and Forth
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Millions of legs, tight and stout, step out
Of their weak doorsteps
With their empty but mighty hands;
They never shirk working anywhere,
In any way, or so many ways
In any circumstances
Melting even Dallol, the hottest
With their cool-mindedness
Or heating even Oymyakon, the coldest
With their hot blood.
