VERNON WARING
Lotto
mix the numbers up fill the lotto card out give the girl five bucks grab that slip of paper clutch that sliver of hope now you hold the possibility in your veiny freckled hand god knows it could be a passport to riches a path to paradise a ticket to eden or is it more than money's lure this scrap of computerized pulp it should flare like a strip of lightning this invitation to rapture this portal to freedom this license to dream

ROBERT J. STOUT
The Orphanage
river railroad tracks patched jeans locked-shut windows (like a fort) smell of pine sol sweat constant coughing daily chores "Hail Mary, full..." (of...shit) Grace? who's she? taste of swallowed cigarette (don't puke!) sexless penguins "Yessum, please..." oatmeal every goddamned day steal cookies scribble dirty words learn to sneer fistfights (why not?) win at something if only sniffing glue

CRAIG KIRCHNER Desert Trek
Transcending trainees venerate our trio awed by its regal mystery, repressing new passions in arid nausea, hiking duality trails with camels and bearded earthly kings conversing Bedouin, ethics, monogamy, time journeys by association. We sip kava, quietly laugh, at this our evening entourage and their youthful dialect then a pause, gasps, as the trail brightens silver with the Star. The Magus points west. Myrrh is in the air.
