from my uncle
that fed a family

space LeRoy Gorman - Canada
spacer brush

  he storms out
of the cancer center
into cold air
the click, click, click
of a Marlboro lighter

space Chen-ou Liu - Canada

    that hour
with the turning tides
he slips away
as if to sea, alone
into the high, blue air

space Mary Frederick Ahearn - USA

In a world where life
seeks life, death does too;
reading your poems
I remember how much
you loved birds

        In memory of Gene Murtha

space Marian Olson - USA

on a keyboard
answer the rain –
the words run clear

space José Angel Araguz - USA

    my penny
sinks to the bottom
of a well …
all the wishes
I never made
