stone steps
down hops a fly
with only one wing

going home
an old oak
with its crows



John Hawkhead

wishing for dolphins
we purchase
plastic inflatables


sky change
the cold edge of grey
in his last coin



Margherita Petriccione

organ notes –
picking up from the ground
a fallen flower


Jack Galmitz

a boy
plays ball
steps ahead of nightfall


Elaine Wilburt

last drops
of homemade wine –
recycling Pap’s bottle
