I say to her
I'm the Gary Cooper type
at dinner
she nudges a shell open
and finds nothing in it

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada
spacer brush

  a butterfly
on a plastic rose
how long
does it take to know
all that is fake

space Kashinath Karmakar - India
spacer brush

for resentment to pass
before I speak ...
all this rain
from one small cloud

space Ken Slaughter - USA
spacer brush

the slump
of fallen wires
after the storm
I carry the moon
on my back

space Mary Davila - USA
spacer brush

  counting the falling leaves
after the final gusts
of wind …
of an unfinished life

space Ali Znaidi - Tunisia
spacer brush

    dry leaves
and tumbleweeds
on a windy afternoon
if I could, oh,
I would, I would
