Issue Seven:
Aftermath

By David Hanlon

Now, I play

                                                                 out the past,

let it  s t  r  e   t   c    h       out

                                                                like yawning arms

into night’s

                                                                sleepless hours.

Then, dawn arrives with

                                                                the unclenching of fists,

I wonder,

                                                                if I could talk with you now,

what would we discuss:

                                                                the anatomy of an octopus?

or how a microscope focuses?
