Pink Valentine Highways – Meeah Williams

It’s September
I hang my bare feet
out the window
to feel the wind
rush through my toes.

Your jaw is set like Dick Tracy’s.
Your eyes squinched tight
as key slots.
I sense your spirit animal
is the holstered gun
beneath your armpit.

We’re halfway to nowhere,
Obetz, Ohio,
where you make me dig a grave
and bury the last mementos
of my past.

Love and Hate and Mindless Drones – James D. Casey IV

transvestite cannibals
carrying secrets
and butcher’s knives
who gives a shit
where you take a piss
I don’t
people fear
what they don’t
understand

Dustbowl – Rachel Kass

Epigenetic 

 

curtailing physiology 

away breath, red dome 

the porous remembrance 

in every stone 

said, 

the elevator closed, is this death?

snow falls in ash form, i 

think of the ovens

 

of Beatrice

1944 Auschwitz 

she visits me as 

i bathe.

Two Poems – Justin Morris

Achilles

 

The girl with the guitar
Has hair as black as Hades
The River Styx runs down her shoulders.
If I dip my hand in,
Will somebody hold me back by just a heel?
Else will I be taken by the current
Dragged to Hell and drowned.

 

Untitled

 

Sadness is not grey or cold
It is a wad of cotton.
