In the gorge below
Kingfishers chatter against unseen boundaries
black birds in the tree house saloons
the trees' red berries begin
fermenting like free fat
grapes and homemade wine
Stanley M. Noah
I recall another
time-slipped scrap of twitchy darkness
madly orbiting late one October
My mother was once the most beautiful woman in town.
My mother's name is Hester,
as was her mother's,
and her mother's mother's.
LouAnn Shepard Muhm
It made me dizzy, trying
to keep straight what flowed into what
and where, which part was named river
I can be venomous when taken
for a prostitute.
