B.Z. Niditch… Wind Sails

 

Wind Sails

Off Gloucester
with the wind sails
burning up the coast
that tomorrow’s red sun
disappears at first light,
my brow beaten
into a Melville frenzy
spotting a Big White
of flesh
that old Ahab
would harpoon
daring to take
a photo with enough
space and time
in these storm clouds
before a voyage landing,
and the breeze taking
even the crows
on the home harbor’s neck.

 

B.Z. Niditch has published five times, thus far, on Rapoetics.com. He has a poem in Randomly Accessed Poetics’ latest Issue No. 6, Ghost House. And will soon have a single author chapbook, published by Penhead Press, released in June of 2015, called “Everything, Everywhere!”

William Wright Harris… At The Asylum

 

At The Asylum

shadows   in green
red        &        blue
arched            door
ways  emptying  in
to               nothing
foot               steps
tracing  a         hall
way       stretching
thru        madness
an  end      painted
in             vincent’s
favorite        yellow

 

I wake up for poetry. My poetry has appeared in twelve countries in such publications as The Cannon’s Mouth, Poetry Salzburg Review, Ascent Aspirations, generations and Write On!!! A graduate from the University of Tennessee- Knoxville, I have studied poetry in workshop settings. As a hobby, I collect places I have been published.

Reloj De Arena… by Virginie Colline

 

Reloj de arena

 

    Holes
           in
             my
                  palms
                             of
                    paper
                 in
          the
               hour
                     glass
                           the
                               sand
                        runs
                    like
            water

Various Tessellations 28… by Felino A. Soriano

 

Various Tessellations 28
—after Christopher Mize’s painting, Waiting for Her Again

Wine glasses of many users remain of the
illusion of corporeal satisfaction.   Again
this
             wandering of trust misinforms and
             flattens sedentary pleasures into death’s
                     intuitive dissipation. His mouth, terse.
Fingers
interlaced
as weakened wings,
broken

                     by wind’s dichotomous sway then violent

maleficence.
