waltz-Gabriela M.

I waltz into an empty ballroom yesterday the ghost of Maja haunted Goya in the streets hungry demons haunted you effervescence, the molecules of those who’ll never be, a door gets slammed a key gets turned the breath of earth is choked initiation my hair gets caught deep in the coldness of the stars my…

Quotable Poe Week 4-Lynn White

Dreaming   There was a time when I knew where to find you, knew the places and spaces you inhabited in my dreams, in my day and night dreams. You would be waiting there, waiting to be found, waiting to come to me revealing your secrets. Now it’s harder to discern you, to recognise your…

Quotable Poe Week Two-Donna Mathews

“There is a room, down a dark hall, locked and guarded. Inside reside the scariest of monsters.” Her eyes wide, “What kind of monsters?” “Hmmm… how to say it…they’re more apparition. You don’t always see them as much as feel their chilly fingers on your neck.” The girl shuddering but continuing, “Take me there; I want to…

Snow White-Allister Nelson

The elven knight went riding with banners alizarin as berries in snow, his face wan, lovesick longing.   Haunting his dreams was a snow-laden lass, fair as a dying rose, iced into clarity by shattered glass.   In twos, in threes, went the Faerie Court, bells on toes, Gabriel’s Hounds baying in the wasted harrow,…

Alien Songs/Ocean Song-Tanya Rakh & Ndotono Waweru

ocean song   I can’t sleep when oceans scream through these remnants of salt and sand I can’t swallow when mountains sit heavy on my stomach, mock my dying voice   I can’t move, not in this turquoise wasteland I breathe galaxies, mists of liquid possibility pierce my atrophied veins; how they twirl and evolve,…

Alien Songs/Desert Song-Tanya Rakh & Ndotono Waweru

desert song   when all of these sandstorms are silent and our ghosts have lost all their names I will live as silk around you an opal under your oasis   bury me broken in open wind, seismic and howling our fractured songs cut horizons through alien dunes, centuries of ruins a fatherless heart line…

Alien Songs/Heart Song-Tanya Rakh & Ndotono Waweru

heart song   I will shut my eyes I will find you here underneath the pain inside this museum of endless heartbeats, pulsing blood walls where we leak out our hunger, freely on the pervious skin of soiled existence   I will find you buried in these mortal effigies, gray with entropy and vine we…

Skeleton Parade-Mela Blust

I am your night deep darkness your rem sleep harpy the dreams you take pills to avoid I am your restless breath catching in your throat ankle-break ouch break-neck speed and honey-drip sweetness I bat my lashes before I bite I am service with a smile I come at dusk, in fog, on waves of…

watch me.

I don’t care what you are I no longer care what you need I sicken of watching you watch Me. your breath stinks of prison rations. I’ll find turbulent times and flow.  conjugal visits form crust on memory of your albatross.  it’s heavy, the lifting up.  a crime, concomitant with…
