Read Poetry: DEFAULT STATE, by Eduardo Escalante

  “CHANGE your switch”,  I’m stepping out of the sad  resounding of   adulterated answers.  They hurt like bites.  The lies cage of likely beaten  I root through God’s absence.    The hatreds bringing   desolation to the innocent  while somewhere so close maybe.     You know sudden black. Don’t  you remember? Take     It out. Someone  will remember  time’s up.     Bitter lies, pallidly interweaving.  Outside my door,  Back to your hell.    And something  Important I’ve always been trying to say  Love. Not a foreign Kingdom or   a cold headstone without an epitaph.      * * * Watch Poetry performance readings: Watch Poetry made … Continue reading

Read Poetry: Writer’s Life, by Eirini Antoniou

    It was a sad and cloudless morning  I took my pen out of my kit   And put a feather in my head  Did I really think it would help me to write best?    I ate an apple and drunk some tea  but the ideas were still not pouring out of me.  I started crying from despair   then I went to the fridge to eat a pear.    “Let’s see a movie” I told myself  “Or read a book that would be the best!”  I run with joy up and down   even my spider thought:  “we have a crazy one around”    The evening found me in the bathtub  thinking “that’s it, my fate as a writer it’s done”.  I threw away my pens and pencils  even my favorite notebook full of sketches.     Two months passed and I still cry.  I always thought I would be a writer for life.  I walk pass the places I loved to write  and I don’t speak with people I used to inspire.    Friends have left me all alone  and I have no one to turn to when I feel alone.  They say “you act like your best friend died”  which is true my writing has gone out of sight!    Searching and searching I sat by the sea  I closed my eyes and my mind was full of dreams.  An empty page came my way   and I started writing about my long day.          … Continue reading
