“Normality is a paved

road. It’s comfortable

to walk, but no flowers

grow on it.”

Vincent Van Gogh

Leaving Taichung


Bob Black

The Sky That was My Mouth

Take the sky that was my mouth,

Take the words that were my bones,

Take the time that was my hope,

Take the rhyme that was my heart,

Take the body that was my gift,

Take the thoughts that were my map,

Take the self that I imagined would one day be fingered as direction and


For you who took but did not know what you hungered for,

I forgive that in all its plundering.

Put all of these in the pocket of your hip and recall:

You shall not walk without braze.

There, stepped and turning, we join and fall like a hurled top


If even you bury me in soil or sand or sage,

take all that you need

for I am scattered and am calm with the time it will take

for you to gather me:

the brush along the ligament that cannot be soaped away.

Carry that, far and afield, in the morning when you wonder from where

the stain came,

for that moment when hope comes galloping over the hill

like bruised, bronze light.

Poem a Week

Gary Michael Dault

Dodos in Dreams

in dreams

we stumble past dead elms

climb their bone branches

chat with dodos

nothing convinces us better

of the finish of things

nothing offers

more terminus

than the sight

of axioms

down on the ground

drying and curling in the sun

Travelling Palm


Tamara Chatterjee

France (March, 2022) – Anyone who’s spent

any time in Paris and the surrounding

suburbs knows that the easiest method of

transport is the extensive train systems. From

my cousin’s cul-de-sac; we raced to meet

the train and a friend for lunch, before a

whirlwind walk around some old haunts in

the city centre.
