Watermark

When the thunderheads rise up
like blood dropped loose in water
why do I always think
about your car, left in my driveway,
four days later?

Making It Even

If I can swim across the pool
same as throwing back a shot, and still

feel nothing,

why did you ask

if the only place I cry
is underwater?

Gail White

The Only Important Question

Is there life after death, and if so
does it mean there is a god, and if not,
does anything matter except finding love
on a cruise ship?

Gail White lives in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, where everything she writes is monitored by her black cat, Pushkin.

Larry D. Thomas

Blue Jay

What is his song
but a brand-new,
awkwardly angled
stick of blue chalk
dragged across
the chalkboard
of daybreak?

 

Larry D. Thomas reads and writes poems to enjoy the scenery of Yosemite from his balcony in the Chihuahuan Desert of far West Texas. www.larrydthomas.com

The Season


In a summer when the sun is so hot
that your old car’s air conditioner
is useless for the first several minutes that it’s on
so you have to roll down the windows,
would you like to have sex in the swimming pool?
