CHRISTINA PACOSZ
In the Outlaw's House: for Jesse James
Clapboard pockmarked with weather unpainted inside Newsprint cardboard on walls Big chinks where colder air pours through already chilled rooms Linoleum so worn only a red rose or two remain leached white by the boots and heels of many feet No money for niceties Narrow windows And views Stubbled fields Beyond them The sky

All the fine arts are species of poetry--Samuel Taylor Coleridge

even as it splits it open.

CHRIS AGUILAR
Remain
She said to look for magic, The trail of a shooting star, Or the way that an ocean wave fades, For all though it is beautiful to see these things arrive, But that the true beauty lies in How they remain

ANJANA BASU Night Wind
The day rises and sets A gale blows out the sun And swims to drown the stars All night the wind tugs At my white netted bed While a thousand stars hold back The sea of air. The net whips and plays, A white stork swimming A winged brief message To a thousand centuries of light Day grounds it. The stars Return to their worlds While the wind whipped back Sulks like a scolded child.
