Poems

"Further exploration reveals a wing
Perfect and angular and still attached
To a slim body robbed of breath and flutter"

 

Chow Hall
John Langenfeld

 

"Am I allowed to be scared? I wondered. Or is fear for oneself a luxury afforded only to those not in prison? Do the unsympathetic deserve any mercy?"

 

 
 

"The growling sleep, wet nose atremble, 
paws that jolt while the withered fiancé drags a thumb"
