RAY SUCCRE
Lingering Abortus
The human wrestles its bloody masterpiece, and the age feeds it electrical grapes. Its rakehell mind favors an intimacy over a broadness, though one of each submits. One may at last suggest its angers are no more bad will than ill luck; it loves and opens under burden like a snail-shell, but is intact enough to linger, to loathe and cross modern chasms, and it will certainly salt the world, as it has, with its physical opinion. This is the extraordinary way

Truth
The truth is I want to feel my teeth buried to gums in your hand. I want to smash anything glass, to feel shards of porcelain angels zing past my cheek, fracture into slivers under crunching shoes. The truth is I want to light your hair on fire, watch your eyes howl in fright. I want you to be so sorry, so sorry, so sorry. The truth is fierce as the whoosh of a baseball bat with your knees in my line of sight. I want to hear the crunch of bone, the slick wetness of raw-on-raw, your trembling mouth work the words no, no, no, no … The truth is I'm afraid I've tripped the switch fantastic from don't-go-over-red-rover to go-go-green-jeans and you're the one I pick.

MICHAEL DAVID COFFEY
Do I Dream to Dare
Do I dream to dare to kiss the expectant air To dance in the sand, swirling blind The salty swirl caressing my hair, to leap To fall, to grovel in the sensual mud To crave, to rave, to seduce the day And catching the wind of opportunity To coil, recoil, to shiver, to whisper Your name in the winds of March And here your faint reply The surf's thrusting response The throb of the sun's beat On my moist arms, kissing the hairs And tenderly our hearts entwine In rapturous discovery of the earth And yes .... I dare
