GAIL ENTREKIN
Rearrangement of the Invisible
And here he comes again, that querulous old man with his pointy hat, his knobby walking stick, curl-toed shoes, pulling behind him the next installment of your life, whether you're ready or not, sweeping ahead in his push broom the scraps and shards of your story so far Just as you were getting used to the white roses, those blowsy blooms along the edges of the lawn, the doe steps delicately out of the dark while you're sleeping, incises every bud, every blossom, leaving naked sticks piercing the night, and despite the dog throwing herself against the door, by the time you push it open, stagger out in your threadbare nightshirt, the deer has slipped away like a ghost into the woods beyond the pointless fence. You wake in the morning to a whole new landscape, and when you cry out, wringing your hands and cursing, the dog sits down and fixes you in her patient gaze she tried to tell you (but you wouldn't wake up) that the old man was passing down the road rearranging your future, and the thing growing in your bones, which won't be identified for weeks, is the seed of a whole new order.

RICHARD K. JORDAN
Coffee And Purple Socks
Searching for inspiration in sugar, cream and caffeine, sweet, sinful pleasure swirling in cracked ceramic, an image springs to mind of a beautiful, naked woman, stretching and rolling reluctantly out of bed. You should see the way she bends suggestively to pull on a pair of comfortably-frayed purple socks at 8:15 in the morning, two time zones away. What this has to do with coffee is a mystery.

CRAIG KIRCHNER
Look for Me At Night
On a couch made of clouds like a mist in a dream it will come to you and you will hasten - In shoes made of dusk running you headlong into the dark, trampling unseen, out of control toward an intuition. Stars crisp against the black sky will melt the brown low clouds like butter so the worm moon can point you to my ashes.
