From Your Editors

Election Day

Candidate lawn signs
wilt in the same rain
as cardboard headstones.

On this Election Day, we step away from our usual policy against publishing work by the editors here. We’re also stepping away from our usual requirement for one sentence bios. This poem is by Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco, who co-edits One Sentence Poems.

 

Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco is our guest editor for March.

We are pleased that one of our most frequent contributors, Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco, is our guest-editor for the month of March. Thanks, Elizabeth!

Apocalypse

No one sweats
in the big movies, with the bombs
like autumn trees

and the ruins
of the world in big red piles.

Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco just wants it to rain.

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?
