GAIL ENTREKIN
Feet
He never said white horse, she heard the deep melodious South, felt the blue gaze piercing, was pierced lay down in the long, soft grass, opened her lips, let her body rise under his hands, gave up everything, fell into the dream where one, two, three, they crashed out the hole where his seed went in, she called out his name. In due time, the story goes, they grew accomplished, left. There really was a white horse the father rode above the fray by day by night, lifted her out the casement they flew her blue nightgown billowing her thighs burning for him. Autumn came, as autumn does. The horse went lame, the man dismounted, tired and ill. She held his spotted hand, carried him over the sorrows, light as bone. She folded the blue night gown, shot the horse. The denoument is neither long nor short. There is no flying and very little tossing in the long grass. Mostly it's salad, a good dog, the occasional irritating cough.

DANIELLE MOFFAT
Tree of Knowledge
Cooling touch of voices Lending heat to the Swift air between us. Unknowing contact of our eyes Over the rush of silent pens Whilst they divide the Rational and the Unreasonable. Seconds ticking slowly And dully through Disparate thoughts and colliding Fields of vision As you talk Blissfully On into space. A touch of knowledge with The blinking of virgin lids And a swift look away. A question mark suspended In between Your world and mine. The missing link? Forbidden fruits ripen And beg to be plucked from Their Tree. I reach out to take one With these Inadequate Words.
