Editor’s Note: Today is One Sentence Poems‘ 7th anniversary. On March 14, 2014 we ran our first poem which was by Eric Burke. We often ask Eric for another poem to publish on our anniversary. Here is one for today. We thank Eric and every poet who has entrusted their work to us.

Imago

Unable to aspire
to mere
prudence,

he prepares himself for dissection,

year after year
(all our childhoods)

evolving
in his cocoon.

Today is the 3rd Anniversary of One Sentence Poems.  Our first poem was Eric Burke’s “The Grand Tour.”  We note our anniversary, as we did on our 1st & 2nd anniversaries, with a poem by Eric.

Your editors thank all who read OSP and who contribute their work. We’re having fun and are loving the work we get to read and share, and we hope you are, too!

Crystallization

On an ancient ocean bed,
a mother and son,
having lost his jeweler’s loupe,
collect indiscriminately
the things of the past.

Editors’ Note: One year ago today, One Sentence Poems published its first poem. Because our first poem was by Eric Burke, we thought we would observe this first anniversary with two poems by Eric. Thanks to you all for your support during this amazing first year.

Again, Tonight

Carving the corks
into pellets
for our daughter’s slingshot,

we build a fire
bigger than our fire bowl.

 

Signal

Spamming the empty
space above the threshold,

this single piece of information.
