Matterhorn
Keith Higginbotham

Heart, heart:
cataracts are not my scene.

The mirror
ricochets headphone
cymbals, keys.

Puzzle paper beats
its rope.

No is the stuff of aureoles:
a sterilized place already

zeroed
into pyramid sleep.

I WAS A TEACHER ONCE by Michael H. Brownstein

Here is the seventh offering from Ten Pages Press, one for the teachers: I Was a Teacher Once & Other Philosophies by Michael H. Brownstein.

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN TEACHERS IN THE TEACHER’S LOUNGE

We wonder what is in the water. Sugar,
Cookies, ripe persimmons, cotton
Candy. We know it is not any of these.
Some things are valued less.
Everything is always that simple.
