Humpback Nickerbroker. A Poem by Saira Viola

Slurping on oysters
Rat King grinned
‘The best time to invest – when there’s blood flowing in the streets.’
His face lit like up like a Roman candle
His heart tasted like cherry flava kerosene
Money spawn fisting the kitties
Jim slim tight wads
Bruising the night
With mechanical jizz
Get up offa the couch
And spunk your soul
With the seed of sedition
Or let your tears fold away the dawn
With fuck me now resignation.

Ruins After Math. Poem by Tess Durkin

Ruins After Math*
One thinks of numbers,

of thousands beneath each wane.

blowing candles,

each flicker of light

under ground …

broken and torn

in an hourglass …
