Deborah Gordon

Twilight

Bird songs muffle
on the lips of the night,
almost melancholy,
from trees heavy
with shadow
as the book of
the day closes, leaving
what must
sustain you on
the long journey
through dreams.


Deborah Gordon, a wayfarer, just like you, trying to find her way back home.

Sea Slaughter

At first
she dampens your wounds,
then
she plasters them with tides,
leaving you bleeding saltwater on the shore.


Argiris Fytakis holds a MA in Creative Writing and writes prose and poetry for various literary journals.
