"But I need to live by water and
death – should it occur –
would be baptismal"

 

Poems
John Delaney

 

"While science with its test-tube magic might
have offered us another choice, or chance,
its moonlit logic never reached romance:"

 

 

Rick's Orchard
Joe Cottonwood

 
 

"Sun heats, shade cools,
the hose washes apple-skin sugar
from the flesh of our hands."
