Cheap Thrills

by Dan Cardoza

I grip the fuse     thumb & forefinger
between sizzle and blast

your face     wicked
cursed with worry

I smiled     it could be worse
I can use my teeth

Highs and Lows

by Chris Butler

Some folks walk along
the straight and narrow road,
never rising or falling
above or below the
apathetic medium.

But I am a speedball,
shot out of a cannon
at over one zillion
light years per hour
head first into the
Grand Canyon.

On the banks of the
trash-strewn stream…..
daffodils.

Nature Boy

by Donal Mahoney

His parents bought a special lock
to keep Nature Boy inside
but he’s mechanically inclined
and loves to go outside.

one pebble

in a world of dreams
no beginning, no end
woken by birdsong

Procrastination

by Suchoon Mo

I procrastinated for nine months
before I was born

I have procrastinated  up to now
since I was born

I might as well procrastinate
after I die
