Jane Flett

Some people spend / a whole life setting bear traps / by their door but some people / have never seen a padlock spool.

Two Poems

Hazem Fahmy

It’s been five years, but this boy still / shines when he smiles. I stare at his jaw / as we shiver on the rooftop of this rundown / hotel, waiting for the waiter to get his beer.

Two Poems

Lucian Mattison

No secrets fill a drowsy whale, / perfectly hollow gullet, / its song only speculation, / music its only meaning.
