I Dropped My Eye Again

Five haiku on sight and seeing

Dropped my eye again,
It lolls, picks up ants and queens.

Magnifying glass.

Lovely big keyholes
This old house has many eyes.

Bathe in damp linens.




We publish stories, articles, and poetry that are edgy, even uncomfortable to read, that stimulate the heart, mind, and occasionally the colon.
