haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

Shield feathered clinches the protection premised. On the count of three,
versus on the contrary, remains forethought tempered by taupe threads.
Wear one, split one. Watch the ring divulge infinity. One petal left upon
a carpet, overtime. The only long effects repair a version of trace minerals
all about percussion tracks a penchant for recovered bones. Is this your
structure? Witnesses place stretchmarks at the scene. The woman in
your parlor may romanticize the client base. Memento matrix, said
the hang glide pilot patronizing briar patch and lamp. Some elements
conforming to an off-the-grid departure from the principle of
reminiscence. True form clashes with predisposition. Waterfall, dry land,
wide lane, trap door. Aroma wafts into the safety. A quiet lifetime, as if
people had in common anything. Refusal to endure the human. Anything
alive. A boost in memory, morale, an intuition worth an answer wrong
on every scale.

Blue eyes, forensic gestures, the perfume of creosote along the roadway

poems || Felino A. Soriano

Various Tessellations 10

—after Robert Glasper Trio’s Mood

Apparent remorse
spinning language of octagonal connections,
syllables etch into
sporadic fulfillment
answering collector’s modulations and

emotional friction of spatial recompense.

Various Tessellations 11

—after Wassily Kandinsky’s painting, Composition VII

Occupied space, the inexorable
inversion (comparable oracle of desolate disbelief (comprehended, Socrates))

funneled versions
too, of
nonsensical pathways jammed into
disregarded fathoms’ self-portrait denial of

syncopated heirlooms left of dust-etched fingering histories

whose hammering, helix remorse (inversion echo)

sought demeanor though damaged unconditional

surrendered vacuum of solid pretense, afterward of logical faith

portends then
soil into hygienic altering of the hands’
division of forthcoming architectural synonyms.

Various Tessellations 12

—after the moment I interpreted sound

Music, though unyet dimension.

into mind the
sojourn altercation immanent dialectic twisting gnarls of

relayed inconvenience:

questioned personal
qualitative persuasion

such force then softened removal of opacity’s clever constant covering of

the mind’s allegorical disposition. My
rusted feet began their

swollen happiness.

Slices of crossed hallways, eliminating illuminations of the
others’ vocal definitions of
articulated callowness. Subjects identify relocated habits.

Bridged improvisations, burdened empirical newness
now and
nuanced renditions of vocalizing entities crisscrossing momentum of gradated

affirmations, squared.

Various Tessellations 13

—after Duane Locke’s poem, SOUTH WIND

Interior fear composing
composure of nihilistic virtues,
compound modulations
trilogy of saxophone’s battling

rhythmic interpretations of
stylized self against
silent chambers
containing unyet interiors of decorated mirrors.

Various Tessellations 14

—after Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote: “I do not know how to draw any distinction between tears and music.”

Fortune the
inherited realism of bountiful resuscitation. A burial of branded fulcrums
isolate swivels amid accurate depictions:

of the hand
the hand of needing momentum to
aggregate freshened soil of time’s
succinct diversions
cultural dependencies
sedentary abstractions

cultivating pluralized synonyms and
mobile readability the
persuasion insists, depicts.

Sadness, nor the positional curtails of rhythmic misery
supposed in the fabric of skeletal composure
does personal compartments of
vocalized inheritance of musical

haiku || Jeff Harrison


you can't prove it, Spring?
I must've lost them somewhere
utter the question

take the newspaper
come upon a photograph
twelfth century

we're of no value
make a mental note of it
caught sight of them once

some kind of file card
catch us up on the story
thanks for all your help

utmost test of skill
around the bundled figure
mysterious crimes

a lot of hooey!
brought in by a patrolman -
a few paragraphs

undignified smile
Nietzschean aphorisms
nerve paths and brain cells

broken front bumper
these fragments shored up against
R.H. Raven Toes

a quick change of clothes
alibi nearly saved them
properly arranged

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

She construes surface as depth. Verses of appearance fall
into versus for the missus. Who confides in. Versus who
returns the service retribution. Piece of walleye.
Percolation primps. A wait staff. Don clamps down on.
Sends our friend. He did. Now what. The stuck part of
the damp line of the dervish when it swayed then placard
splintered too. Young braided boy at brawl. A scorpio deranges.
What miles to count. Play what is not. Young parallelogram.
A two-two tabula rouge. And now her ghostly prax. The yarn goes
dormant. Turnkey. Riced. The table-plated joust. And fractional.
And endearing. And repugnant. And encyclopedic. And infringed
upon. You know bestial. Thrice the bladelet. Scorn. Entrenched.
A shut-up's worth of condoning. Welter. Welt. New weight. The
only freedom. Patched. Is parsed too. Vintner and she does not
even drink.

Salt shaker, placing the distractions far away, torpor, rumor
milling around, a morgue in situ

Sheila E. Murphy

Takes a Wife

This most exhausting sentence broths on toward completion of one's life, says he.
You mimic me. You fault line everywhere I have. The mensch I thought I was lies
down in hammock, disabusing selves of thoughts concerning safety. Here we are,
and there I go, thinks he. The portion of the plate devoted to the vegetables
expands beyond the fruit, the grain. Sandpipers take the mind off sand. The sky
becomes all that exceeds beneath-ment in so many words. She's central and she's
prompt. She's here on time. She norms her way through others' time. I want to go
into a question where I leave my mark, and lose the interrogative, says he. I want
to find a self that I can be, as singular as March. I want to point out what has
been bequeathed to me, and give it up before I give it time. I want to father
something sweet. I watch the feathers from my situation comedy address the branches
and the future heat. I want to sever ties to tone deaf fracas, and attain
bewildered ways. I want to loofa obligations, breathe out safety while the norms
shake off my bother. Back to life and back to dreams and back to music, I will
overtake reputed moons. To month the whole way through the dowry and consider
myself whole as healed, apart from brothers, uncles, quaintness, aunts. That stance.

Shimmy as a solitary inkling, something often left upon the off-white page

Balsa wood airplanes found in language compete with the pronunciation of
rurality. Now I'm warm; a minute ago, I turned it up. Honk if you think
fear can be relaxed. Dumbwaiters have to do (with freight). One of the things
I've always loved . . . from time to time, a depth in your originality.
Turn on the tap, turn off the clodhops, recognize the referendum torque
its way to iterative blanching. Tree branches list amid our brevity. The
sprawl configured holds its posture where we know to seem asleep.
Which lace would most become my window? Hushed silver taps the
dual-paned glass that looks out over snow. If goalposts house
a penetrable surface, who can claim stray film?

Overdose of undertone, fleece foaming a distraction from immortal recency

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

Posture's tincture modestly abbreviates the slurs already mispronounced.
The screen neglects riposte. If you were she (not her) whom would you
bring (plus-one) to the festivities around neglect? Our year begins
when we declare freedom to selves twirled around beanpoles
maypoles, daybeds, tool sheds. Our resilience comes from mutuality, like
springs (as plural as you please) apart from seasons, cars, and mattresses.
I want to dance inside the cortex of another person's diffidence, to
undermine complicity of shrill free will. I would rather be a DJ than
platonic likelihood of turning food. And equally, I would prefer
to dust the shadow of a full life with goose down than drift toward night
earned by routine. For now, one's sturdy ritual becomes another person's
impact on the fraught.

Mandatory meetings, phantasms overcome by actuality, tin whistle versus
pencil late at night

3 poems || John Pursch

The Death of Archimedes

Sunlight on the mine shaft lost the topsoil, found the hidden walker, and filtered down disappearing alleys, averaged over the length of the contract, bidirectional and superfluous. Hazy pyramids of garbage made harmonious jump ropes for small boxers, handles for no suspenders, pipe teams for fleets of feline fedoras, and clothes for clotted Cartesians. Hark, a mediator, scratching in the plain! So, man, roll yer die, Yankee dog. Stand a day with my diaphragm, Centurion. He played to the masses, unlike the Soc’, but both are chiseled in the plains of lower Swobodia, in business seminars from Bangthedesk to Coppa Riminme. Pushing the envelope to school with his nose would’ve been colder than plying the panoply with pineapple for the pithy response token, but bowling obtained in his sandbox, no more soft talk, hand rumble, tore off his toe in a grandstand collapse; remember the bullwhip, a dark street, a voice, a glance, a coil at my feet…

The Forest of Wonder

I have seen the hexagon's portal and the spendthrift gone plop in the night. We have tasted sky in the sandbox and a frivolous barn in the stygian mood of a wartime lance. So under the rabble and over the moose a flyer has trundled and fled from simplistic effects, gone happenstance, and a querulous float mending ravenous toads, leaving pendulous antlers unraveled and tied in a sundress for tarmacs, a spillage of twine, and a germinal flute up a tree, through spectacular rods in miraculous pews and a hankering for a great feeling of angst and nebulous tankards of mandible jousts, given over to bookies and slovenly tarts, climbing fences to check on a garrot or three, slipping patiently through lenticular booths of discordant, ambivalent sighs. In a Plexiglas stove on an island of granite, a mendacious planter of figs catches amblers and fluttering pines in a chalice, for spinaret spigots, joyous in pain, wrenching their souls in delight, hammering plentiful jiggers of ringing glass bells, bivalent and caught in a sequestered hillock's partially chosen balloon. How much water can tenderloin shirk? When can flexors be darned? Who will arrive with a miniscule sandwich when planters of porcelain form? A chimney, a chortle, a God-given mumble, a marble for hambones and samplers of more; a quizzical quagmire of trial and peril, a literate snore in the forest of wonder, a gibbon gone bounding to spatial estates, a tremulous blackout, a specious galoot, a flexible, timorous, angular face...

Callubential and Demacious

Em carrigant bunnichumpers
planche a herimovian nobture,
mithing a carmontal splooch,
arufted and glamine in its herm,
torudinal, melloriant ermise.

A heubential fremming cang,
helven umpter a quence of chandled urm,
obbty in themsong and heffling
a gramt crake poranner,
fliggered spiten romaphores,
grimmingly yet pradly orugescent.

Hecking dous comerboat chendlers,
angy orgs of etch indged a parkel of phlost,
gulabrous for infidential flenge.
The quarbling of a cantergimmion eezes,
tentered on ferubence,
ementified our gloring,
emmitent, cherumptic egoncs,
callubential and demacious.

poems || Jeff Harrison

Knots of Hilda Doolittle


to tie a Bowline Knot

Bowline is tied to:
swift thru dolorous lessers

form an eye

eye is tied to:
ships (schooners) affrighted

with the standing part
of the rope running underneath.

run the free end thru the
dolorous lessers swiftly, then
thru the eye (wide, affrighted
by schooners), making a loop
below said eye. take a turn
the standing part & feed
the free end back down
the eye & hold there.

pull standing part to tighten knot.



the Double Fisherman's Knot
is made by looping a rope
into a figure-8 in order to tie
two ropes together. since beyond
rope, as in breath, is almost certainly
tyranny, it is recommended the
ropes be secured by their ends.
endless amounts of rope is desired.
practical is to tie two ropes into a loop.
the Double Fisherman will make another
knot secure when tied with the tag end
of the rope behind another knot, in other
words, when half of the Double Fisherman
is tied around the standing line of another knot.



to make a Clove Hitch, make a turn
around a post with the free end
running underneath the standing part,
not exactly artistically. was Virginia's idea.
take a second around in the same
direction and feed the free end thru
the eye of the second turn /. pull tight.

It was Virginia's idea to make a Clove Hitch, but Neaera was ready to fall
in with it. It was to be done thoroughly and lastingly but not exactly
artistically. Virginia and Neaera were war widows and had made a solemn
compact to remain widows forever. Ianthe had confessed... As for Appius, he
tied very few knots and very few people asked him to tie anything. O, he
felt to the full the lure of treading WHERE NO HUMAN FOOT HAD EVER TROD.
Ianthe had thrown her wedding-ring at him and flown out of the house. How
Virginia and Neaera would show him they were widows indeed!

easy to tie and untie, it holds firmly but is not totally secure.



beware! the Square Knot will untie
itself under movement. do not trust
the Square Knot to join two ropes
together. the Square Knot will capsize
under a heavy load. when tying the Square
Knot, both parts of the rope must exit
together. whence the untrustworthiness
and trickiness of the Square Knot? gather
around: but no, I will breathe not a word,
not until the Double Fisherman runs out of

these are the words he was at last compelled to write.



to tie an Anchor Bend Knot,
make two turns around
the shackle, leaving turns
open. knots may evade us,
as our own features are
less familiar to us, to our.
take a half-turn around
the standing line and
feed the free end thru
the turns and pull tight.

the Anchor Bend Knot was a ruin awash in wilderness when I found it.

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

She has married him so thoroughly, she'll never get away.
Her poise has gone to build him up to a break-even status.
All her friends who have admired her, now find empathy
for what fraction of a future she has carved apart
from an intention. She has married someone's leftovers.
A life of consequences someone else once seeded. She
used to be a self, and now that entity is integer, as
multiplied, divided as a child just learning the impossible
arithmetic that becomes their lives. She patches over
an inferior material and wears it in whatever weather
comes. She has clocked in hours and batched together
particles of happiness in past tense. Amnesia turns
to sacrament. She opens every window to look out on
what was possible. She rehearses her capacity to hold
still. To be held.

Deflection of the source of fear, a prior seeming justice

Another Fake Potato

Sun, brisk, laughing down the last giblets of the rope they gave you, your rope: the one you skipped, the noose, the hemp. Efficient, simulated rain; hail on demand, a greatcoat for criminologists to finger and prod. Skoal and crossbows, cowboys hit the feudal system, lasso who and lariat moo, the crazed tin sheriff's coconut caper, cowling complete, a coolant quite soothing, even in times of barred marbles, a legion of martyrs... Fragrant flagrancies on voyages to the rocks, to be landlocked again, in vertiginous prolapse, clutch cable buckling, only enough hope for one last eight ball, banked off the spinner, over the sundial, into the elevator, up a leaning cliff, spiraling ultra-slow to grab two pieces of liquid machinery from stations near the game. A long shadow, plenty of definition, reminded him of spring, melted preconceptions of a bathing party gone wild, or a quaint picnic with bows and lace and ants. "Too melodramatic," warbled the pie man, nailed by another fake potato, just a rock. Effigy used to be such a good job, my uncle was a great one, famous in the state, burned at the stake, hanged, tarred and feathered, tortured. Very resilient, never showed a limp, so much as a scar, never missed a game. Didn't make the Hall, though; horse-sex scandal in '32 ruined his chances.

Pure Pepto

On ponds like these, with paddleboats and ping pong players riding floats to nowhere, just the mention of a fragment engenders proclivities unintended. The rolling human vampire jams the town, covers the continent, and changes to food groups from hammerlock to back brace, implying helmets. The wheel unspun, questions went unsolved, small notions of unreality persisted, ribs were poked, shins kicked, nosed picked, a new leaf found but rendered lackadaisical by the feral lesion. Nimbly, with grace, over the table, toward the quibble over reptile filming, somnambulant soda machines pour beer onto pigeons; a deluge of herbal tea, vitamins, early breakfasts, nonsensical meanderings and launch reports; a program from flip-flop dynamics, bitwise plenitudes of arctic flanges, turned to bromo in the sun. Lean, but sinusoidal, liftoff, area under the slider greater than the strike zone, a feat of pure Pepto, local roots, and a classified list of bird parts. You can just throw in the whole bird, it works, but it tastes bad and is very messy to prepare.

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

Make of self a little island field with temperature inverted. Make a time to
wield the nothingness, that it might seem contagious. Limit intake, outflow,
adhesion heists. Be singular as willful rest. Now is what you often missed,
one at a time. Pray simply. Cool replaces the way warm replaces cool. Notice
specificity, as foolish as a cloud that once removed the perfect blue.
Make of experience an innocence deliberately flushed with river, as you made
a tape in hope of keeping secretly a morsel of ephemera. Rule to be forgotten.
Speak back to selves you learn to name, rename, refresh, reveal, that rule.
Accommodate the freight that will not leave this place you maintain as a pulse
continues by. Thump in hand, in wrist, in heart. Behold. Be wary. And be multiplied.

Ways of having Thursday count, picking a shred for thinking

poem || Jeff Harrison

All Loud Worm

slow-rising naked heart turns spider-tongued
turning dry quarter shapes,
O how the Fall harnessed my veins down

flat tiger crane-flat beneath the skin

my mechanical fruit gone All Loud Worm -
Mr. Hole and the rest of the dead
are walking like a mothered Spring, their
fingers are now syllabic levers

the sea-gut Summer's tomb weathers
the powder of some Sargasso smile our
original fishes' bough is alight with drowned fuses

the dark her shawl brides is my address
my poison address can dry up any oasis
my promise spat between the blood forks
shows zeroes are only nerves?

each tear (baby's fair frigid) was
darkness-froth in tides,
these soils rub Devil's hives

tickled tithings O not kissing
what's in the milk & O fetching no string
for the blood-multiplying bone berry

Homage to Captain Nabob

A placid, yet formidably vituperative affair, the War of 1812. Cannon, crossbow, erector set; houseboat, logjam, can of mace; smokescreen, fishnet, anthropoid; will do, Cancun, firepot, hambone for Uncle Bob; and nether the leather shall tether the unsuspecting bellwether stock; eye be them, the most rusted mane in erectronics. Working day and night, the women and men of the waveolution splashed upon the shores of O-say-can-you-sire-a, Nude Hamster, near the Vermin border. Now that naked hamster ain’t got a chance against them vermin, I always thanked, but ye canoe, he do and does and did whup them varmints, played a bit at complete annihilation, then screwed the placato-switch to quick-start the prostate, causing a bowel alarm. Rods out of the water, cracks in the containment vessel, the Seine shrinks, bridges stand dry and deserted, monuments to the atmosphere, the ruins the epitaph, the epitome of epiphany. Hope not, bland storier, thine building shall not crumble... Nay, Captain Nabob, the Flintlock of Firing Pin, Barlovia was tied by spatial interests to the gradiating glass of pi-teen-o-wow, City of Norumia, Lost Blemish.

Many Quicksands

Fuzzy pathways sometimes missed, time just a means for processing the sample set, of the set, many elements, differing only in their time of collection. Pop-top haven for criminal blacktops, asphalt on the lamb, severely restricting the animal’s mobility. Champion dart man Pethronius misses the whole board, simply contemplating strip mining of the ocean floor, forgot about the water, but only after a billion had been squandered on research. Growing fish from plankton, via the crab, a slow but sure reaction, catalyzed by amniotic fluid. Bought the special molds in Paraguay, the gods yawned on easy times and cranked everything, amused with the orchids, the opera shoes, a farm of escalators, menus and bobcats from eras gone over the rapidly rising banks of tidal rivers near you; coming spoon, knife, and fork in the toad worth two in the fender, sayeth the mailman. Clamor for the starlight, moon decides the day, holding for the barfly... Many quicksands. How many? Heading which way? What size? Do they have tigers, tramcars, or turpentine; trampolines, turncoats, trundling toys tied to triangular trench coats?

haibun || Sheila E. Murphy

You have a choice of whether to make it work or keep it broken. And you elect to keep it
broken, as if a ticket to attention. The pile of pieces that no longer connect means Goodwill
must come to haul them in. Perhaps to simulate a working thing. Perhaps to show good
hope, if not quite faith. You had a choice that you begin no longer to continue having.
As the broken thing morphs into other things, and as you cease to watch, the center
point shifts to a different place. That place, no longer central, shifts from openness
to turf. Whose turf? The guesses gradually accumulate until no one possesses the
connections. And connections resemble possibilities of newly formulating things that turn
eventful. Heaps of new attention might collect or might collide. The inferences might
capsize. An individual such as yourself may have a role in changing forward or
reverting. Stasis no longer holds. An infinity of centers pivot to include remote spots
operating as distinctive centers yet unknown.

Rapport, lack of rapport, a story told from one perspective, an infinity of fiction

3 poems || John Pursch

Wheat Puppet Fingers

Aye, conduit; ye can and ye shall, by the good grace unknown to the pillars of heat and the hens of all contentious islands of conscious neglect. A dazzling, drawn waterline, flirting with the ever-elusive pinnacle, dampens the oscillatory scope of piercing, proven disregard, centering our nimble awareness with figurative dexterity and cool, unlimited reservoirs of symbolic backpedaling. Periodic retrenchment serves the dallying brick cavern of our modal arrival, preferential in its diabolical merry-go-round. Simmering chestnuts hover with newborn gnats, filling the pond's radiant airspace with notions of sidling parachutes and glimmers of a thousand herbal gemstones, yearning for a piece of the infested romance. Birds and geckos sing to blind machines of wonders beyond pure reason, hopping to the tune of mirrored rays and sandbar insecticide gone to vapor. Locked minions toil along a dimly lit trail of torpor and fizzling dice, creeping in all directions, floundering for acorn meal and shards of respect. Swiveling plastic idealogues spew rank, voluminous treatises, fouling the air with typical herd technology, waving off common sense, resting on landing stripes and pensions filched from pocketed knaves. Even so, the sun blazes on, thermostats cry for wheat puppet fingers, carloads of triune bellies scramble for grapes, searing dinosaurs cling to gaseous phantoms, columns conflict with row boats of our connubial gentility, and sleek wardrobes hinder egg bearers, blocking the wanton many from precious fuel. Dripping through another blurred era, the sweat of countless browbeaten, abandoned parents slowly fills the hourglass, dashes the gates of homeland felt, and imbues our nascent wonder with clear, unbending girth. Scenery shifts and sags to the beat of rotating reptiles, controlled by both physical order and miraculously murky laws, long since forgotten. Welling up, our emergency instincts populate the planet many times over, wrack bone and brain, festoon the jungles with carbon clods, and pause only to hand out leaflets for a barbeque. Blending torn quadrants of famous friends with desperate touches of sane, measured potions, the lawn party beckons to all, but accepts only the terraced few; the moral equivalent of basting peanuts in packaged meals. Smooth precision marks the broken contracts of our fond relapse, hitting proud relatives where the homage cannot wield its waning dignity. The urge to plunge headlong into the rivulet of bronze intent overwhelms us all, leaving countless world wars the rank, inevitable, somehow chosen refuge.

poem || Edward Nichols

Concurrent themes he evinced as he whetted the rustoff his tippy- tophat.
Thoroughly flourished,he evinced himself of a tapestry ,and,ran the blue hole through a tempster dagling off a pole, ran the quarter mile as a fifth, shelved used Tturnps of a stuttering shot of rigomortis.His throat shattered in a hacking cough at the mere mention of the word.

Embittered embroiled battle, bubbling bloated blastedin the everhaven garden Demetrius delight .The lights floated past, one, as the overdrive the middleman and pure the puree' on neutral.Sodden with the Earth
