Salty
irreverence
disguised as outrage
dulls Liberty’s promise
expects her
to shine

Reverie

Between
stretchy clouds
   impossibly high
and bass so low
as to bring
vertigo
           Hyper-aware
                of gravity
     nimbus-strong
  and super-wish
           a tractor beam
   would end
All this
Izy’s prompt in the Imaginary Garden: WRITING UNSEEN

Connections

The first time it happened
I noticed to myself,
all of us
engrossed in other things.

The next day, we exclaimed
There’s a rainbow!
just as the singer sang
about a rainbow.

We looked at each other.
That’s weird.
It happened yesterday.
Yes. That’s really weird.

We decided to take it
as a good sign.
