  Table of contents Issue Twenty-two HOUSTON EVENING


Light sets low
Red glow tinted window panes
Dogged singing the mellow regret.
A Caramel disco ball
Speaks to my yesterday,
Yellow and amber tones
Sounding off in the haze
Of foggy catechisms and late nights
Eyes open as I slumber.
Waiting for gypsies of the other
To recuse me from the mother
Of undone.
Melancholy marble croons
In the distance while I try to right myself,
From the wrongdoing of the morrow.
The daylight screeching into the curtain,
Forever uncertain
Of having been unwanted.
