Light Depressed

I stored up in the
summer and a few good days
in fall, hoping I do not become
a dead satellite

Benjamin Nash



And she opens, opens doors, drapes, blinds and windows,
old glass lights in carillon colors,
and still he cries his fear of dying.

Sean Lause



I float in feeling, instinct, reason,
then totality and the corona.

Linera Lucas


Franz Liszt in my Garden

think of Franz Liszt bent over
his keyboard, like a sapling
after a strong gust

Bob Bradshaw


Song from Savoy (Annecy, October 1956)

Blind singer strums the strings
Calls his committed themes
Calm but as strong as a hawk

Peter Bridges


The New Normal

that mindlessly hot swath of February, blinking
stunned at its raggedy-ass self

Christine Potter
