Your Skin Upon Mine

Tanka and a Monoku

Line Art Lubna Yusuf

I want to wake up
but only beside your face
Your skin upon mine
So I sleep while you are gone
Murmuring I think of you

Looking outside the dreams I wonder if you ever think of me too




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