STEVEN M. CROSS
"On Thinking about Cremation"

The years push me toward that place Where the light is faint -- A pinprick shining against onyx monuments. Memories rush around me; My life flashes against silent shadows And shatters on stone -- into pieces. Raging floods carry me -- in pieces -- Down a black river. Snagged on limbs, Swept up in minnow buckets, Splashed by toddler hands Grasping at tadpoles; I dissolve. But some little Bit of me floats on, Swept into the oceans of eternity.

COLIN JAMES
A Non-Compliant Student Venting to a Gamer

Normally it wouldn't matter, this wheelbarrow of a behind I carry swollen with parenthetic passion. All the urges that twist torque such as a rendezvous not kept by eye looks and arm tits, dismissive of whatever is not there. My walk has become uneven two legs loiter without thinking then follow along systematically present. Shoes worn inside out, upside down. The leather is rubbing, becoming opinionated can't say as I agree with that. And the rocking chairs are masturbating all over my perishables again, having never made peace the first time.
