First Quarter 2013, Selections #1 & 2

Full Moon over Smallville 4

Señor Dwight daily walks
Baby Super Girl,
who runs up and down the gentle slope,
his wingman.
Asked how he’s doing,

      “I’m blessed and cannot complain…
                  To know the story of the 47 Ronin is to know Japan….’”

in branches high
I spy a bird’s nest
back-dropped by a vastness
and his fading echo

          “…and cannot complain…but I want to.”

--Richard Velez

winter night
red pepper, soup, wine and old friends
four ways to warmth
add laughter, fire, and sex
and when the cold winds howl
then wool and memory

--Patrick Mizelle
