dust motes
drift in the failing light
way too late
to explain what I did
and did not do

space Jo McInerney – Australia


at game time
my son can't find his glove . . .
the smell of dust
as I search for something
to say to my ex-wife

space Ken Slaughter – USA


same old story . . .
before my eyes glaze over
I note with care
a toast crumb in his beard
a mud fleck on his shoes

space Beverley George – Australia

her story of grief
the rice
in my pan
burns dry

space Lesley Anne Swanson – USA


mixed fragrances
on this warm evening
stirring appetites;
a chicken in the oven
lilacs from the open door

space Adelaide Shaw – USA
