From Frank Watson
I Drank Poetry
by Christena Williams
Pour me some more
Let me stumble through the back door
Let the police
Smell the poignant aroma of rhythm and blues
Collide with my Genius creative expression
Handcuff me for resisting being silent
Check my breath for the bubbles of a drunken poet
Spitting up words and rhymes
Expressively with profanity
Charge me with intoxication
Before the judge
I plead guilty
Poetic confinement recommended
On the walls I write art
Painting out the graffiti of the prisoner's thoughts
And colouring with poetic expressions
Pour me some more
Until my cup overflows
I just can't get enough
Let this liquor become embedded in my arteries and lungs
Let it be in my very DNA
Let it flow through my blood and veins
Through my heart and mind
Let it be hypnosis for my dreams
I drank poetry and it tasted delicious.
From Lily Wang
A little sigh,
She looks at me--
The black-feathered bird
On a dark branch of spring,
Elegant and desperate.
By Ali Brown
I could write about the bread I made
Or the cinnamon sugar
Mixed with maple syrup on the
Not being able to afford to travel to
I tried to write about
The bluetits and dogs and
Snow that was falling gently
In the park;
But maybe I could write about
Homemade pizzas instead, and then
Sitting by the fire with rum & coke &
But somehow I can't find the words
For any of this, because today
My head is full of Loss
But I can't even write about that...
So I'll just sit for a while and
Be mindful, and with gratitude
I know that
This will Pass.

he tells me
he'll never marry me
Spring begins with wild geese;
wave after chevron wave
of feathered trumpets
The poets in this anthology come from all corners of the earth and, with their words, invite the reader into their homes, minds and hearts.
