    I. My compliments to the editor, Or the editors, As the case may be: You who sit at a computer, Tireless, I imagine; Sometimes drone-like; Zombie-stare at a glowing screen. I imagine you Far-reaching as the world’s largest spider With access to the world’s largest web, Sifting thr...

    We are playing a game of spoons on the outdoor picnic table in the warm sun. Birdsong drifts down from the sunburst tree above us. Cards are passed around the table, and every once in awhile someone mutters about their hand. Spoons lay in a pinwheel, aiming in seven points of direction from the mi...

    They see nothing Their eyes are glazed With the light of computer screens [a web worthy of Shelob herself] Ears stopped with the cries from within. Jaunty caps [black as one perched on a speaker] And sour complaints. Blue and white are the colors of the day [could they be the colors of...

    Words chase each other around my head, blabbering, incoherent; the half-formed heads of fairytale stories, never finished, never ending. Wispy, like white eiderdown.

    The sky is turquoise blue, the air is clear. A meeting of minds, alike as can be. Their lives so differnet, parting draws near. Severed already by a figurative sea. working in unison as hearts are bound. They speak together 'til the job is done. Ever linked, though proximity unwound. W...

The colors of blue and white reflect upon the water, making it a mottled and tranquil blue-black. I extend a finger, intending t...
