Tattooed Touch by Blanca Alicia Garza



Tattooed Touch

Two poets who fell in love...
writing letters on by Blanca Alicia Garza
each others skin
using fingerprints
and lip caresses 
Leaving them printed 
like tattoos that 
will remain forever 
and spending the 
nights reading them 
like marvelous 
great sonnets 
and love stories 
printed in braille.

Destiny by Blanca Alicia Garza





Destiny 

She is clothed with an inner strength
and laughs without fear of the future.
eye shine, ignites sparks in my heart.
she judges none, and walks with grace.
Her dreams are in a technicolor palette
and lights her way through the darkness.
She adores dancing in the pouring rain
Blowing dandelions in summer breezes 
Talks to the moon about her eternal love 
She smiles as squirrels dance in trees,
loves spending time watching kids play.
Her dream was to be a great writer, but 
falling in love with a poet was her destiny.

(Initially published on The Song Is)

Visceral by Theresa A. Cancro

Visceral 

It grieves.
It aches.
It sobs

into my hands,
quivering orphan angst,
abandoned.

Passersby refuse
to pick it up,
examine it.

Slips in to my back
pocket
folds on itself,
silenced

for now.


Bio: Theresa A. Cancro writes poetry, short fiction and nonfiction. Dozens of her poems and short fiction pieces have been published internationally online and in print. She strives to find sparks of wonder in the ordinary.

BENIN By Eddie Awusi

BENIN

Yawning out,
A bronze of ancient dawn,
Bustling and buzzing with life,
Like a swarm of bees;
Awkwardly awakened,
In Ozolua moat.

Bellowing;
With spiralling sinews of smokes:
Crawling sheepishly. ascending;
From Iduh Owina to the hearths of Ekhiadolor;
Into the naked ivory of the sky.

And zealous feets;
Meandering carelessly;
Negotiating steps, at the fringes;
And coughing locomotives;
Bursting like raucous
Mushrooms on fertile soil - on the roads.


Eddie Awusi lives in Benin city where he runs a small personal business. He has a degree in English literature. He has been published in Dandelions in a Vase of Roses, Voices of the Aspirants, FM 20 among other poetry anthologies. His poetry has also appeared in different poetry magazine in Europe, America, Africa and Asia
