while I wait
for you to return
the clock ticks —
why have I never noticed
how loud it is?

space Joy McCall - UK


spring morning
your call arrives too late
for last rites —
still I hold the phone up
in case, just in case . . .

space Margaret Dornaus - USA


my fingers
trace the scar
along your sternum
across the heart
that wasn't yours

space Tracy Davidson - UK

emperor moth
fluttering at the window
I'd swap places
if you'd lend me your wings
that I might fly to her

space Andre Surridge - New Zealand


one by one
black-naped monarchs unfold
their wings . . .
on this wintry night
why do they enter my dream?

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada
