DAVID JAMES
Flood of Centuries
“Entomologists working in Iran and Turkey learned that a rare species of solitary bee builds brood chambers of brightly colored flowers.” Harper's, July 2010
Even bees get depressed, down in the flower dumps of bee-dom. Everyone needs some alone time, space to remind yourself there's only one chance to get it right, or semi-right, or done in a way that won't embarrass you. In dreams, the bee discovers a blossom larger than an oak tree, waterfalls of pollen roaring out. In life, he heads to the brood chamber, punching his fists through walls, screaming at the top of his tiny lungs. I'm no hero. The good parts of me crumble off my shoes like dried mud. If I'm lucky, I'll come to terms living as a footnote in the flood of centuries. If not, I'll need more than a fucking brood chamber to stay alive.

DAVID E. BARNES Kalbarri Fishermen
Sunset chameleon skyline wind-carved - aflame jagged cliffs sculptured, bent twisted skeletal trees defy gravity with tendon claws in the rock face. High-tide waves climb, surge across the coastline goat gulch ledge skeletons rise on white stallions warning rod and reel in hands stark fishermen swept away King waves harbingers - sudden death. Low-tide names plaques screwed to coastline cliffs shoreline serrated rock outcrops I felt you I heard you last night as I fished. I search flotsam hooks lines sinkers lobster ropes, buoy's, captured by exposed knife sharp fingers, tangled pieces of lives souls.
