Part of Life  by Alison Hammond

I want to walk it off
but I miss my dog
and how she always set the pace.
I want to talk it out
but i miss my friend
and how he always
picked up the phone.
So here I am in between
action and thought
and not wanting to feel
a Goddamn thing
but knowing full well
that something creative
is incubating and will hatch.
It always does.
It’s part of life.

The Way to Leave Anything is to Step Away from the Nearness
by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

shock and garnish
all things gaping mouth-trap adaptable
I am always amazed at what people choose to fear
closet oddities murder scene scattered across the floor
the humming sky forever out of tune
riots in the streets where cheques were once cashed
cabbies without cars on the dole
salvation, you say?
there is no way to get there
the buses aren’t running
my eyes are freelance photographers deeply set:
heavy, bloodshot, immutable
under a rumpled hat of premature baldness
sitting on strange heads the same way say
a trained falcon sits
halfway down the arm, dreaming the death
dream
bulging feathered appetite on display
the cornices of government buildings as good a place as any
to hide
lay low in the baritone tradition
watching short fish-like men erect electrical fences
to keep the master plan in
and I find myself in a public bathroom
a message
gum-stuck to the wall:
take it or leave it.

I leave it.
