Judith Taylor: Cinderella upon Remembering Bruno


Cinderella upon Remembering Bruno


Her hands

down by her sides


Also her drink of choice

and how she speaks to

the bartender


Her subtle, slow

I’ve got all day

ReVerse Butcher: This is not a violin, it is a doorway


This is not a violin, it is a doorway. I know this, because I read a lot. My notes and references are usually very detailed breadcrumb paths. But, as Brion Gysin said, the mice can get into the larder of language (and I add to his point, memory). And, well… I have no control over legions of mice.

“This is is not a violin, it is a doorway.”

Tachypsychia. The word we use for defining the neurological condition which alters our perception of time. Time lengthening, time moving slower, time contracting. A blurred vision of time as response to a traumatic event. Time as a collection of unrelated passages. Time as red lines on the temptation to exist. Time as well-captured intentions, the same throughout all journeys. Every inked reflection, a paradise lost. Continue reading “Christina Tudor-Sideri: PASSING THROUGH THE HOME OF THE DYING”

Daniel P Callanan: Thresholds

Threshold_001 (Blackwater Valley)_dpcallanan

I was thinking about Brutalism, cattle and passage tombs. Form, currency and death.

Walking the fields of North Cork and the headlands of Galway, casting cow-sheds as signs.

Homes for people, now homes for animals. Cycled forward by occupation, migration and forecasts. Radio broadcasts. Concrete and local stone piled into walls, supporting cold tin rooves. Corrugated steel. Cheap and functional, galvanised wave forms. Tin, iron and zinc combined and beaten thin. Weather resistant not weather proof.

Dov Nelkin: 6 doors and One Slammed


My brother’s childhood room and mine connect through paired doors, at three different points. Walk out my room and and ten paces would take you to my brother’s door, next to the AC control, across from the panic button. We also shared a bathroom, each room opening onto the sinks where we would brush our hair, or teeth, or forget to, side by side. With both doors open, you could have seen from pillow to pillow if you tried hard. Continue reading “Dov Nelkin: 6 doors and One Slammed”

Dan O’Brien: 3 poems




You wake

From sleep


You wake

From death

You know

M.J. Iuppa: 2 poems


Every Hour Hurts in Fall


By now, you have adjusted to time’s addition, waking

without alarm, your body’s sudden jolt of electricity—


your toes and fingers wiggle—eyelids flip open to stare

at the ceiling’s cold.  You’re still here.  Isn’t that crazy?


You want to get moving before you hold still, before

you find yourself between the flight of day & dream.

Adedayo Agarau: 3 poems




on being broken / like shards of withered glass / my body

repels every music its soul makes / i close every door i

can’t walk back through / by this i mean i keep memories

in a box of cigar / god tells me i am a chapel Continue reading “Adedayo Agarau: 3 poems”

Emma Stevenson: Growing, Up


Growing, Up

The grass lies hungry, waiting

to swallow up water, worms,


I scatter them. One by one

they are plunged into the

dampened fingers of fertile

Ben Gedaliah: Room 168, the Hotel S-

Room 168, the Hotel S-

The door opens to a married man, a single bed.

You’re not here, but your presence is everywhere. The bed is meticulous, signs you’ve been here are subtle, imagined, your outline dimpling the duvet, just a trace; Continue reading “Ben Gedaliah: Room 168, the Hotel S-“
