my childhood home
has been replaced
by a mall
no place now to park
my memories

  at times all I remember:
his eyes
over the newspaper
his eyes over the hundreds
of words between us

space Jose Angel Araguz - USA

    after 20 years
an old friend calls
— somewhere
between forgiven
and forgotten

space Sondra J. Byrnes - USA

he listens to me
just long enough
to form a retort ...
waves break endlessly
along the deserted beach

space Michele L. Harvey - USA
spacer brush

with duplicity and lies
his words
spin the threads of her dreams
weave these into a shroud

space Sonam Chhoki - Bhutan

    how easy
to mince the sun
in gardens
such lies we hang
with clothespins
