*

no exit

her phantom
is among
phantoms
and there

as her
contours
sway
under
pulsing
skies.

Nanny State Blues – David Lohrey

The good citizens of the Only State wake
each and every morning to reruns of Forrest Gump.
They enjoy a four-ounce cup of regulation chocolate
milk and a gummy bear vitamin. Then to the bath house

Ten Poems – Fish Lu

*Translated by Xi Nan

Fire Hydrant (Selection)

I can’t see my
Life
Woke up in the morning
And saw my room
Most of the time
I stay inside
Occasionally go out
Wherever I go
My life
Follows
Or, me
Is my life
