Elijah’s Poem For Dating in the Digital Age

I see my face on her phone. 
A quick swipe left. 
She is just across the bar, do I say hello?

Neo’s Poem For Morning Ritual

I open my eyes
Greeted by a new day
But my phone is so sweet, her tender caress blooms.

Sarah’s Poem For Mourning Ritual

I get a glimpse in the mirror,
I saw my mother woven through my face.
My make up runs when hers does. I hate when she cries.

Anonymous Poem for Mourning Rich Ewe Wool

They run the trains at night.
We awake to the scraping and screeching
of iron grinding iron. The sounds of cheap rent.

Eamonn’s Poem for A Parisian Afternoon

I should practice my French.
“Bonjur, comma alley~voo?”
“Please monsieur. Never speak French, ever again.”

Sarah Plotts’s Poem for A Parisian Afternoon

This city is full and rich;
Causing my curiosity to itch;
So I move to the Louvre , to see Art-History.

Wynn Edgar’s Poem for Does Camping Suck?

A rock in my sock,
Smoke in my hair and dirty underwear
I am freezing – why in the world did I come here?

Caroline Gregor’s poem for Cooking on a Budget

In my wallet, only five to spare.
In my stomach, nothing but a pear.
Guess I’ll have to shoplift, but I don’t have a care.
