#139: Lady holding a menthol-flavoured cigarette


put out
the skyblue cups
and saucers

tap a ginkgo
for the tea

milk a cloud
for cream and sugar

squeeze a fall of sun
for lemon

have an oaken biscuit?
good with ginkgo tea
and cloud milk
or lemon sun

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

India (January, 2003) – While perhaps not the most popular tourist destination in India, Kolkata holds me at an emotive and affective level. My ancestral connection to the city has allowed me to explore it's many canals, ponds and other natural subsidiaries. These waterways are where one encounters life: bathing, cooking, cleaning, play and socializing are all connected by water.

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No. 200.  The Chocolate Rose.

Galvanized, first, by the fact that this would be the 200th view into his Tabletop Studio and, second, by the fact that it had recently been Valentine's Day, Abigail, his next-door landscape painter, had suddenly presented him with a bouquet of chocolate roses, each bloom meticulously wrapped in bright red, rose-like foil.  He appreciated the gesture (though he carefully discounted whatever erotic fervor that may have been nestling at the heart of Abigail's gift), and while he didn't much care for chocolate, he did rather enjoy the fake blossom's chunky, ottoman-like shape and density.  Encouraged by the amusement of his increasingly sentient mannequin--now named McDowell--he had set about carving a large version of one of Abigail's florid blooms in wood.  Both he and McDowell found it charmingly absurd.  He did rather worry, though, about Abigail's suddenly popping in with a cup of green tea or something.  He didn't fancy her company, but he had no desire to hurt her feelings either.
