Example text

Dodge stretches his legs, Reaching his paws across the gap between us. Hind legs over there and front in my lap, He rests his head in shaded relief from the sun. Bridging the two shores, His sloshing heart wheezes in overlapping beats. Below still sky, Blooms of fireweed and work barrels blur by. Gerard Kuc Along Lighted Alleys Page 26 YELLOW RAIN Yellow rain seeds a parched field, Burrows under the rising ground. There they wait to be revealed For a chance to reach around. It waits for a child to kneel, Spreading Christ's offering atop.

By now eyes have grown older with life, Yet we still stumble around for what really is. We turn to lines of hope and jokes, Glued to refrigerator magnets. As age stiffens bones even these become cliche. In desperation we search for the Word of creation. Obsessively we repeat ourselves – Our brains arthritic dogs crawling after mangy tails. We could save a lot of grief if we skipped past this And were able to look within the word. For all we need can be found inside Truth – Like a black hole, small yet all encompassing.

We wander blindly, search for meaning Knowing death awaits us in the end. Quietly I watch, wait wishing my time comes soon. But if wishes were razor blades I would have died long before we met. So now I wish to impale myself upon your sword To watch from outside myself As my life, my blood pours over you As you drown in my pain. But your blade is blunt, leaves a scar though it doesn't pierce the skin. I used to say it was fear of pain that kept me from drawing the razor up my wrist, But I love you more each day Gerard Kuc Along Lighted Alleys Page 36 Cher Pangilinan, Philippines Cher, 22, a graduate of Economics from the University of the Philippines – Clark Field.
