river fierce teacher
thrash tender turnings until
heart light as driftwood
– Kate Wright

Boss tries to fire you
The day after you quit your job
Laughter inside all day long
– Carly Rose

through bark woods creek burrs
she arrives haggard cheerful
creek flowers blossom
– Christopher Barry

standing the mid-watch,
all at sea crest-ing foothills;
laser my sally
– Max Yeffer

Do snakes miss shed skin?
Do deer mourn antlers dropped?
Shadow, follow me

Rotting banana
Stinking up the car again
On my way to lunch
– Michael Bone

Elderberries bloom
Buckeye and poison oak too
White flowers opened
– Katrina Djberof

Days of fever dreams
Descend into the valley
Summertime Madness

Leftover whiskey
Goes stale on the countertop
No one to drink with

Black lungs, bad music,
Vinyl spins recklessly like
My human rhythm
– Oh Dae-su

To scrape the bottom I pull
this poem inside out.
I'm tired of wanting more.

a fleetin’ moment
somethin’ ‘bout changin’ seasons
involvin’ nature

Here I sit, legs bent
Wishing for your summer sun
Prepping for the burn

Game of friend or for
Only those who risk all win
Don't get yourself killed.

We want that feeling
Of free falling through the sky
the best way to live
