Neil Ellman

Baby Talk

(for Grandma Gail)

How you speak to him
decomposed to syllables
then “a”s and “b”s
the babble of babies
now your
“g”s and “d”s
he wonders
at the movement
of your lips
the mindless sounds
he tries to imitate
but only gurgles in response
and then spits up.

Neil Ellman lives in New Jersey (USA).  He has published numerous poems in print and online journals in a dozen nations.

Lise Larsen


Sizzling bolts igniting
flock of starlings a mechanical smell
electrical lights last year’s weeds
aerial chirrup bygone grass is coming to stay
stale grassland frost is coming
sliding from hills of ancient monarchs
that once ruled guitar chords
moving limbs piece of meat
he knows where the entrance is
legs unfolding

Lise Larsen lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is opportunistic and loves writing and growing potatoes.

Mike Meraz

The Girl with the Golden Eyes

the girl with the golden eyes
has crooked teeth,
dresses badly
and smells of liquor.

she comes in and buys
“Evan Williams”
from you, looks at you
and smiles and says,
“I’ll see you later.”

the girl with the golden eyes
is an alcoholic,
duped up,
reeking of innocence
and shame.

she is everything.
she is everyone.

Mike Meraz lives and writes in Los Angeles, Ca. He has been
published numerous times online and in print. you can check out his
