“Denied Your Heaven, We Will Deny You Ours”

by Nance Van Winckel

Wings, anyway, are, like brassieres, another cumbersome
strap on. Our Tilt-A-Whirl Deluxe Delivery System
pops us in and out of the Downtrodden’s Realm. Specters
inspecting. Have us a whim, and we’re there—as, say,
third base your kid tramples racing home. Love that
foot in the face! Piggy toe in the eye. Love it.


“Nouns of Love”

by Caroline Finkelstein

I’m a firefly, covered boat,
willow’s shadow,
the housemaid, Sickle Moon.
