AYLA NEWHOUSE
The Underworld
The sun withers and curls, equality fades with morning toast. Unsatisfied, what dreams have taught: that crescendo, lull, rhythm to being. I dream high passions, palms of lovers, a tangerine; world sallow and seductive - one taste and you'll cry blood or butterflies. The dream remains as ocean's ebb, faded northern lights, a smile on the face of famine. When you slide your Ralph Lauren slippers off the shine of satin sheets, the moon crowns glaciers above the poplars. The shadow of dark spreads its crooked fingers; Dark unfolds in creases, pours itself over wounds from soundless guns. In the end, untouched by love, unscarred by war, we're all the same.

DYAN SANDEFER
The Dive
Sensational sunset sparkles on salty water, a solemn silence sadly drums on her ear. Diving, freefalling, breaking surface like shards of shining glass. Slowly sinking in the deep, dark calls as sorrow rises, too late to bring her back from despairing depths. She drowned, she did.
