MARYANN HAZEN-STEARNS
I Must Be Ice
I must be ice or at least the spider thin line of frost that tracks across your window pane, that branches out from the center splinters into blue-veins doubles, triples, again and again until your view is blinded in the crystalline shine of mine. You might melt fingertip circles there on the glass, but you won't touch the perfect white pattern which accumulates overnight. You'll wait, shallow breath puffing, till the sun rolls around from the side, if it comes over today. I could be ice or snow you know, or frost but as it is, I'm just slightly less warm than you.

ALEX STOLIS 
Insomniac
Asleep under a charcoal black umbrella, the city smiles red with swollen disdain at our stark desert eyes, tattooed faces. I reach for a burnt out cigarette, can't feel the rain or remember the last time you cut the fog with your amused piety. I twist vacantly, never to sleep right, never to be that awake again.
