Volume III, Issue II Summer 2004


in the spaces between cities

"I'm 35, married, a father, angry at a great many things, overeducated, underpaid, deeply in debt, one dead car in the driveway, just waiting for my neighbors to move. Recent work has appeared in DUFUS!, remark, Above Ground Testing and 63channels. Recent collections include "Enemy," a chapbook from PinkAnarchkittyPress.com; "Silence in the House of Truths," an e-chapbook available at Tamafyhr Mountain Poetry; and "Human Cathedrals," a tasty little full-length collection of angst and bile available from Ravenna Press."

cold on the day
this woman
drowns her two children

all of the usual office sounds
as she takes her own life

no beauty
in anything human

the sky without color
the houses fragile
and i answer the phone



the fluorescents too loud
like a war
that can't be won

the oldest child coming
home from school

uinlocking the door

walking in
