Sun
by Michael Palmer

Write this. We have burned all their villages

Write this. We have burned all the villages and the people in them

Write this. We have adopted their customs and their manner of dress

Write this. A word may be shaped like a bed, a basket of tears or an X

In the notebook it says, It is the time of mutations, laughter at jokes,
secrets beyond the boundaries of speech

Time
by baby panda

i was eating breakfast
when the morning sun warmed my skin
it was then that i belatedly realised
my skin wasn't tanned anymore
it no longer glowed in the sunlight

the last after a long string of
things i have lost in the past two years
i suppose, after all it's been
a catastrophic two years

Anna - July 1st, 2024
by Gilligan Snolepart

Anna dances
She pirouettes
From the get go she said it all

I am so cold
Crying inside
I am alone
Will you hold me
And for all the grit that I show
Would you like to

Elegy
by Aleister Crowley

Here rests beneath this hospitable spot
A youth to flats and flatties not unknown.
The Plymouth Brethren gave it to him hot;
Trinity, Cambridge, claimed him for her own.

At chess a minor master, Hoylake set
His handicap a 2. Love drove him crazy;
Thrre thousand women used to call him “pet”;
In other gardens daffodil or daisy?

Henry
by Robert William Service

Mary and I were twenty-two
When we were wed;
A well-matched pair, right smart to view
The town's folk said.
For twenty years I have been true
To nuptial bed.

But oh alas! The march of time,
Life's wear and tear!
Now I am in my lusty prime

Distance
by Rhys O’Donnell

I wanted to speak with you tonight
Your presence was inviting
I have trouble finding the right words
Could you ever look my way

A group gathers around you
I try to stay beside
They cling to your words like I
Rushing to understand you

days of old
by linz azodrac

getting older and getting steadily colder. the fun seems to get more scarce as each second passes by. will I end up one of those sad old ladies, bitter and alone? will I have cats instead of children, and paper instead of someone to talk to? will I share my life with no one fully, but be eager to talk to anyone who will listen? or will I wake up one day wondering where my life has gone? wake up to three screaming kids and a husband I don't even remember loving. watching late night tv just so he's asleep by the time I go to bed. will I be a hypocrite? will I forget I ever knew how to live? time is just too cruel for words...

Burnt Orange
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

magenta magic
recently escaped eve's skies
darkening to plum

crows caw on the wing
as pink sun turns red-orange
day goes up in flames

mango berry crush
mahogany shadows move

Time
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Time reclines on the spine of whim,
Belching from the fullness of being
As it rises and falls on the strength
And weakness of age –
That very tiny spell in life
Regulated by the will of time.
