CHANGMING YUAN
Within the Rain Zone
On the local screens, one beside another It shows low clouds drifting like fog That can be seen on the walls of highrises Here the rain downpours as if all the tabs In the heavens have been turned on Curtains of beads, giving us more privacy More freedom, more serenity And what can we do? Let us remain indoors Listening to the raindrops beating together with our hearts Watching our entire neighborhood cleansed, taking on A fresh look, while just five streets east, to us Is never far enough, a place of sound and fury A vanity fair all too familiar to our old selves Here our children playing with us, innocent and full of joy A new surrounding where we are still strangers A corner where there are neither friends nor frenzy Where we can always sit at a distance, observing

KAREN STROMBERG
Swinging the Cat
You wore a beret, carried whiskey in your pocket. I thought you were cool. I loved how you leaned back in a chair and sang your songs to a coffeehouse crowd, how you could bring the pulse of a cool evening down to the rhythm of your own heart. Music was your god, and we worshipped together, until you flipped your life around and disappeared into gray three-piece suits, gray freeway mornings, and I was left alone in the solitary cabaret of my own mind. Sometimes, I sing, and your guitar, buried upright in the corner, hums along in its frayed black box.
