Fight
by Lucy Wellman
Desperation for escape. A way out. A heavy breath of fresh air to clearThis fog away.  I want clear skies. I want clarity. I want Everything to be different. Do I move? Leave everythingBehind?Leave the known behind and recreate myself?Do I change? No - That is not me. Perhaps being me is - Simply - Difficult.

rhyme rapes where rhythm sunders

 Rhyme rapes where rhythm sunders;where poetry assigns, the muse that breaks apartrifles through its numbers;and, where the meter looks out upon the heart,the stanzas of the soulrove the versing detail of root and fang and spark. An anvil in the spineexterminates the siege of verb and glowering code;where the poets climb,the wrangled suit of pages slams…

Shipwrecked
by Jennifer Richardson
Seas release sweet melodiesTheir notes undiscovered sunken jewelsMermaids maneuver the ocean's lure Unanchored passions set it looseAbused by the push and pullPetrified of mesmerizing schoolsShips jostled over swollen waves Ragged winds filled the sails Numbness eases into the wooden planksBliss unencumbered is lost at seaShips shattered like sea glass Silent stillness is an illusionThreatened by the current course.
