Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault

 

Six Haiku scribbled inside the back cover of a book I am currently reading:*


1)
I am hungry
but my rice bowl
floats on the river
 
2)
It’s cold
I sleep under
a single star
 
3)
my rice bowl
floats on the river
like the moon
 
4)
the weather cleared
a willow
kept raining
5)
it was only a boulder
I knew it wasn’t
a wolf
 
6)
the path is uphill
the ladder
of my spine
 
 
*Specifically, J.D. Salinger’s Nine Stories (New York: Little, Brown, 1953).  This my third reading of this brilliant collection, and so I can’t be sure when it was I actually scrawled these wispy poems.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee




India (May, 2017) –  Kolkata was super hot and humid, trying to amuse ourselves we ventured over for a morning visit at Baboo Ghat, whereby local convene for purification baths in the Ganges. While the family was entertained with the kushti circus around us, I dared moving a few steps further and spent a bit of time watching those bathing between the blooming water hyacinths.

Gary says he had been dreaming about a tree.  All he could remember saying about the tree was "Does it know I'm there?"

Leaving Taichung Station
by Bob Black



Autumn, Blue as October Breath


The spine of the sky swagging over cloud and tail, your undoing
reminded fractures that shadow burn scorched grown
the unevening of the tilted land or after, the curtain of blackened grass, remains
a person lit afire in the greening dust and gold-flecked soil,
once a body print left marking the ground

This unending algebra, the grammar of lost teeth and nibbled-none bone
blackening the earth underneath
Is this what the earth has come to?
Is it the sky’s fault or our telling yells.
Make it rise.

You autumn blue as October breath
what are we, if not those kids laughing on the stairs, regardless of their pivoting.
Our unfailing as pages of a long due novel,
our un-all
and what if the timed turn,
what we endure, of lines of light and lifted sorrow
if nothing else, what then?

Gobbling and sea-green, and you.
