whistling Dixie
in a land of cotton –
songs we learned
in grammar school
when all we knew was white

  a soldier
emerges from the rubble
over his shoulder
grenades, an assault rifle
and a wide-eyed child

spaceMarilyn Humbert - Australia

    small figures
wrapped in bloody sheets
the brute strength
of this urge
to turn away

spaceLauren Mayhew - USA

the baby sweater
she knitted so long ago
one pink strand that she held
in her hands, in her heart

  driving uphill
thru the downpour
of butterflies
we shed tears for
misplaced childhood
