[Closing Spells] by Jane Fleming

[closing spells]

 

My mother said that I should bathe in oatmeal

So I do

thick baths gray with powder, sticking in clumps of snow

and I dip in so that I no longer itch

or bleed

Two Poems by Brynn Downing

IMG_20180416_230232_684

CONSUMED

Rhode Island, 1892

For Mercy Lena Brown

 

I.
After you die, Lena, you will freeze

until the neighbors unearth you

open your chest, your breasts

 

split to either side. In your heart:

blood–frozen. Your lungs, shaped like wings,

will yield once, collapse, and won’t rise.

Two Poems by Theresa Sullivan

 

IMAG5442

 

Ruminate

 

When nights steal in I paint

a house filling with water.

 

 I make the exit transparent,

front door gray and ghostly beneath

 

seawater creeping past the baseboards,

sloshing over the table,

Three Poems by Judith Roney

IMAG0797_1

 

I See My House, My Field

after Marianne Boruch

 

My son lives there now, in his winter

like a husky dog burrows in snow.

 

Most of the rooms (yes, I can see them from Florida)

are muted by cold, and the furniture

 

is still the maple my mother bought the year

she had her affair with my father.

A Series of Poems by Cynthia Cruz

IMAG2639_1

 

DURAS (THE MUTE)

“Writing also means not speaking. Keeping silent.” M.D.,Writing.

 MD is mute. She throws her voice into the text and there, her voice, resides. There, in the book, we hear her screams, we hear her weeping. But alone, in her giant white mansion, she speaks to no one. She paces, endlessly, the only sound, the sound of flies and death emanating from within the cracked walls.

Two Poems by Lucy Whitehead

IMG_20180104_120151_066

Stasis

I know how to be a beetle stranded on its back,

a moth pinned flat inside a frame, a wildflower

pressed between the pages of a book, a petroglyph,

a fragment of my former self, a rock, a photograph.

Two Poems by Nicodemus Nicoludis

IMG_20180110_053317_344

 

Untitled [Elegy For the Memory of a Relationship]

 

It isn’t the space

the closeness of knowing

somebody so well

we hear their heartbeat

inside ours,

or the aperture of life

squinting one morning at a time,

but I freeze right there,
