HOLLY DAY
All the Days After
we fight like suicide bombers, intent on destroying everything just to make a point. hand-painted dishes from Hong Kong figurines of children in lederhosen from Holland a collection of German drinking steins cascade into an unsalvageable pu3ile-piece pile of ankles, bonnets, houses with pointed archways and heavy silver handles. We wreck everything within reach grind cat food into the Persian rug under the weight of our twisting bodies, collect skin beneath our fingernails, rip out fistfuls of hair crunch teeth against bone. When you're dead, I will forget you. I will roll the Persian rug up around your body drag you out to the construction site across the street hurl you into the dumpster full of broken cinder blocks. If you win I don't give a shit what you do with me.

KASIM MASTER
The Face 
Last evening, quite Unexpectedly, I found A face in front of me, A face, which years Ago, was of the one who meant the world To me! And there it was, That very same visage, As young seeming, though Years have passed, Since last beheld, The very same, a Little crinkled. May be, but just As lovely, as it Was then, even now! I saw that look again The very same, that used in the Bygone days, To raptures create, A desire, to gaze Forever that Countenance, and carry It in the mind And heart, ever and anon. I saw that person again, That had that face, That had that look, And I felt those feelings Same, as I felt then, Of being unfulfilled Just as left out, As it was then, So I found it to be now! Oh! Why did I see That face, that look? But it had to be, And so it was! And now, I carry That memory, which I Had lost in the shambles of the past, refreshed, as of yesterday, and the treasure once buried now surfaces, to entice, but, as it was then, so now, never ever to possess!

MICHAEL MIKUS
Freedom Flight
O, lay me among the dead who have drunk from the waters of the night, then kissed the moon that sails across the sky in veils of saddened flight. Carry me where lustful rivers flow silver from the star's secret light, to cleanse cool the souls of lovers braced with desperate passion bright. Float me on the ancient lake with rising mists ceremonial in rite, then ignite the bed with a lighted arrow to burn me out of sight. In the canyon deep, carved so grand where time crawls dead from walls wedged tight, spread my ashes upon the wind to ride drifting currents where they might. And when you wake to a strange, new blazing sun think of me, up there, inspite the fun you know within the limits pale reason hides lofty heights. For I have died, only to begin a new life unknown without a fight to keep from wanting more, and to escape in freedom's perilous plight.
