On Writing The Short Poem

Eliminate twenty adjectives.

Emphasize verbs (and all

those verbalisms that carry

fever or congratulation).

Describe elephants

of your imagination as if

in copulation.  As if

each word’s ejaculating.

As if the poem conceives itself.

End it with a question mark?

C. D. Chase

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

not particularly high

clawing

at the smokehouse door

Mark Hartenbach










                          Wondering

                          how is it done,

                          the vanishing,

                          to step behind an atom

                          the oak crown still roaring


                                    Georgette Perry

 

 

 

 





 

 

 

crows gather

row of hunched forms

immersed in no-mind

Cathy Drinkwater Better

 

 

 

 



























What I Am Thinking in the Middle of the

   First Annual World Java Conference

From here, those lost crows

are seven black pebbles, strewn

across a dry creek

And you too shall

pass, the autumn

tells me, shaking

its leaves

in my face.
