The length of a Kalpa
by Kirsten Textor

As I gaze
Out the window
A small boy
Runs by
On his scooter
For a moment

And alone again is how all will succumb
Why then is loneliness treated with such disdain ? Continue reading

Somehow you believe I will too

Taking no time to Continue reading

Minnie’s Last Moan, Poetry by Helen Spisak

Be true to yourself the people say
But then there’s chaos and sighs of dismay.

Treat others and all that ‘jazzzzz’
The trouble is – I detest ALL jazz! Continue reading
