[Poetry] ‘Dream Job’ — Mary Peelen

“Disrupting the dream, a holy terror: an alarm clock rings and I’m jolted back to the taupe world,/back to my day job, where, wholly unencumbered by spiritual dignity, I work myself to death.”

[Poetry] — Bernard Pearson

“Between the river/And the remains/I watch as my wife and son/Do the grave chores,/Remove the recidivist,/weeds pressing their suit/Around the marble”

[Poetry] — Tom Holmes

“This is where Oppenheimer lived / before he ended the war, / where he read the Bhagavad Gita”
