Ms. Cobblepot and Mr. Periculum

By Alexandria Somirs 

One day, chanting in the way

I happened across a tally maid,

With nose in a book and her head

Cloved by her lovely tumbrella,

She brashed into me like a two-toned jambrella.

Belong

By Sebastian Temlett

In the blackness, a warm glow. It touched his face from time to time, drawing it from the dark. The fire danced in an old barrel causing sparks to jump through the rusted holes. Night seemed to swallow him almost entirely as though the fire was keeping him tethered to existence and he sat and stared into the flame. His solitude drew me to him. Read More

The Lover and the Moon

By Callum Dawson 

There once was a woman who fell in love with the moon.

So besotted was she that every night she begged the moon to come closer and plant a kiss upon her lips. But the moon refused, turning its cratered face away from the woman.

Eventually however, the woman’s unrequited love became so loud and so frantic, that the moon decided to lean closer and kiss the woman so that he might silence her demands.

And silence her he did, for the movement of the moon beyond its allotted circumference caused such apocalyptic tidal upheaval that the woman drowned in an instant.

And the moon pulled back, a little embarrassed.

Burning Heart

By B.T. Cuzner

By writ, by rune, by hollow heart, with soul and blood.
I cast now with all intent and pour myself into my art.

Spellwork, magick, writhing power.
Forged and gathered in hand.
Feel my spirit.
See my resolve.
Taste and be devoured.

Come, hear the magick ring across the plains
The brush of air.
The heat of flame.
Deep dread coursing in your veins.

Thunderous echo quaking.
Rushing waters recede and then…
Silence.
Death becomes you at the touch of my hand.

Heavy

By Sebastian Temlett

Upon a heavy street, heavy

fall

my feet

heavy there, lies, alone

heavy thoughts

upon the ground they fall, heavy

eyes, they search

and turn within my

heavy

soul

to find

my tears that do not

fall

heavy
