my deepest fears
live in nightmares –
I keep you
chained in the basement
of my subconscious

spacer brush

  night deepening ...
family, home, and house
in one Chinese word, Jia,
murmured in my attic room

    such big steps,
the toddler
with her mother –
China too
so far from home

spaceAngela Leuck – Canada
spacer brush

hungry rats
skitter over broken glass
and the feet
of a homeless man ...
eyes fixed and staring

spaceTracy Davidson – UK
spacer brush

  shadows drift
under the setting sun
the life
of a beggar mingles
with the darkness

spacePravat Kumar Padhy – India
