On the steep ascent
he tells me he's seen her
break boundaries
that woman who's no longer
a friend of his or mine

  a fly
zigzags the ceiling
I wonder
if that's what
she really meant

space Brian Robertson - Germany

    bats dart
in and out of light
we no longer speak
each other's language

space Debbie Strange - Canada

for hours
in the chilled waiting room
I listen
to other people worrying
in their mother tongues

space Ruth Holzer - USA

  a lucky stone
turned over and over
in my pocket
time has softened
what used to be important
