rainy day silence –
in my inner room
words jostle for place;
the hierarchy chosen
by wit and caprice

  she demands to hear it
and of course at that moment
I'm not in love
I'm in math class
feeling singled out

space Brian Robertson - Canada
spacer brush

    in the time it takes
to think of a word
the spider
under my desk
crafting its web

space Doug Norris - USA
spacer brush

the taste of her
on my lips
and in my heart
her name

space Ignatius Fay - Canada
spacer brush

rushing toward something
unknown –
the road lined on both sides
with white blossoming pear

space Ruth Holzer - USA
spacer brush

    a boy's first crush
when every puddle sparkles
it's difficult
to see through the surface
of our wildest dreams

space Maxianne Berger - Canada
