The Name of the Drug

By Katelynne Davis

No longer the dealer’s face and tongue, but
his pockets full of hands.
No longer his hands,
the delicate wrists, the fingers I could turn eternally, but
his pockets.
No longer his pockets, turned eternally inside out, but
their contents
No longer content
with their contents, but
their insides
turned eternally
out
of his hands.

It Changed My Life a Little

By Issac Sullivan 

ephemeral wave
came and went quickly
thinkin’ ‘bout it still

 

followin the schedule
trusting the rhythm we’re in
till a wave took me

 

landed again soon
still feel the cloudy residue
eternal time too

 

now I see Earth build
humanity into it
not the other way

 

thought came with the wave
right on Earth to Earth live live
so needed the life
