  • Riot of Roses

    by Brenda Vaca
    This collection of poems, RIOT OF ROSES, is at once a confrontation, a confession, an embrace. It took me 44 years to love myself with abandon and to trust myself as a writer. I caught glimpses of this deep love throughout my life. I even preached about it on Sundays twice - in English and en Español - for over a decade as a pastor. Still, I was restrained and bound by my gender and by my culture, and literally collared by religiosity. Thankfully, Spirit planted a love for words and stories deep... more
  • The Lesser Light

    by Philip Wexler
    These are the first 500 of a larger in-progress collection of poems related to the moon. They were inspired by the woodblock print series, 100 Views of the Moon by the 19th century Japanese artist, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, though the poems do not directly correspond to the prints. Rather, the prints were a jumping-off point. The poems represent the author’s personal take on the moon or what, in his environment or psyche, brings the moon to mind or into view. They were triggered by thoughts, fanta... more
  • Desert Plains

    by Bill Spratley
    The desert. Dry, barren, and dangerous. Disorienting, extreme, and raw. For many, a metaphor of life. For others, a metaphor of following Christ. Dashed hopes. Fear. Impending doom. So many threats in those plains. But a surprise in those plains as well. Planes. So many planes. Planes of the human heart that are exposed to the elements. Planes of awareness. Perception. And with it, new perspectives. Perspectives that reveal the hope, purpose, and beauty within the desert. Desert Plains–in ... more

  • The Indignation Parade and Other Poems

    by F. R. Foksal

Foksal, in his poetry collection, shows us that even in the most topical issues can be found a grain of universality. As a non-native English poet, he explores current themes not only through the prism of a wider context, but also through the precision of language.

    The poems in The Indignation Parade navigate the topics of one’s vulnerability in the face ... more

  • THE BOOK OF I.P.

    by Chris Courtney Martin
    Chris Courtney Martin's THE BOOK OF I.P. (Idle Poems) is a hybrid poetry and essay collection that is 'ironic in concept, sincere in content' as it deconstructs prescribed best-practices for getting ideas greenlit as a screenwriter and what it means to possess a producible story. “THE BOOK OF I.P. (Idle Poems) by Chris Courtney Martin has an ample tone of sovereignty while indicating the true face of societal vindication, the gap between this generation and the last one. The similes, personif... more
  • Awakening: The Trinity

    by C.L. Brown
    Diversion I am a mockingbird echoing melodies my sadness never sung Like falling suns serenading moonless nights Like sad hearts cowering behind brilliant eyes My song is my disguise For your bewilderment, I sing Masking my masterpiece of pain I am the cries of spring mornings though my soul shivers in the dead of winter I am a mockingbird echoing melodies my madness never sung
  • Bare

    by C.L. Brown
    Dust Where am I going? Is there a place for me? Do you not see? I AM nothing Yet everything An easy burden for the still soft wind Shifting from death to life then back again Having mastered both from the beginning of my end Where am I going? Is there a place for me? A place for my pain? For my truth? For my emptiness? I have given you all that I AM But you are not satisfied See how you sift me apart seeking yourself? I AM you Can you not see? Do you not hear my song? I hav... more
