Contemplation on Creation – Hestia N/A

A Temporary Eden

 

Spiritual Bodies committing mass ritual suicide
Energy burning forth, across, all over
Consuming the surrounding dimension in flame
This mass execution in honor of what?
Dimensional divide cut open, new life born forth
Astral, Physical have become one
Individual existence breaks down
No one could have prevented this
No one can stop this
Existence is merged into one whole
A primordial soup
Garden of Eden recaptured
Reborn
Reformed
Language destroyed,

Eat Cloth – Liu Xingli

translated by Xi Nan

 
 

Exhaustion

A grey bird accompanies her, flies here,

and flies away. More commas and periods   

will provide more comfort. Comma is a 

small tree stump, and a period is a 

swimming ring.

Old Desires – Aria Perez

At The Fair, 1994

 

At the fair I’m a winner.
At home I’m nothing

I’d like a space empty

of momma’s loud screams
and momma’s mean fists

so I crawl into a closet
and close my eyes so tight

they might get stuck that way,
but they don’t.

Waterway – David Lohrey

We all live on the Hudson: America’s only true river. It’s
a driveway, a landing strip, and a dead end. It’s not the only
river to become a school; it’s the only one beheld by the likes
of George Washington, Melville, and Sir Winston Churchill.

The Hudson is a work of art first seen by Thomas Cole, Church,
and Cropsey. It is the river of Allen Ginsberg and Malcolm X.
