Six Poems – Rebecca Kokitus

tease

 

summer spring tease, I’m in blue jeans

prickle sweat on the backs of my knees.

still have winter lips, bitten to bits

dead lips only a mother could kiss,

like blue stillborn pucker

size of a violet.

 

wasp season, all prick and swell,

all hiss through the teeth

and stifle the child’s scream you never grew out of.

Two Poems – A. Molotkov

Hesitation

 

if I take the jar inside

the water will spill

but how do I know this?

 

I forgot my own future

when I became engulfed in you

so much darkness

outside your well-lit room

I remain in the dark

 

if you let me shiver at the door

and freeze to death

as the jar freezes

Untitled – Kate Engler

I tried to tell him that my belly longs to be swollen belly baby belly

beloved belly/ birthing/ birth/ afterbirth/ belly

my gut aches; I am old; blooming and shriveling with the passing hours; stone

fossil and throbbing embryo.

Yearning swelling swollen vibrations- run too fast for too long

Ears throbbing underwater hunger beyond bread beyond sex everything slowed

under honey like poets promised.

Six Poemz – Ryan Bry

like a dream scythe to the head / sleeper-soul

 

wake up

you alien

we got shindigs to wrestle

degrees to flaunt

slashburns to remedy,

with time with time

the breezelette mingles

to the reasonable sound

of quartet floozies

zing out of this dimension

to another Earth

with more sympathy

for chicken growers

like yourself.
