Art Happens, Share it Here, Arts and Poetry
Poetry Space, Winter 2019

Moving into winter now, fallen leaves and early snow. In this edition we feature four poems from writers both new to us, and some not so new.

As a reminder, for the time being we strive to publish most, if not all, of the work we receive, or at least a selection of work from each writer who submits.

Given our space constraints, we have a bit of a bias toward shorter poems and cannot make use of photographs, art work, etc. See the guidelines for submission below…

We invite all of our readers to submit their work. To submit, simply email your work to [email protected]. Please include your poems in the body of the email (no more than 3 poems per submission please), and please include your name and where you live; if you prefer to submit anonymously, that’s perfectly fine.


Unopenend Presents

Breakfast in bed
A kiss on the cheek

The universe at our fingertips
alive with possibility

like unopenend presents
inside each other’s eyes

–George Cassidy Payne
Rochester, NY

Sunset in Calabasas

Ambushed by Sunshine
Betrayed by Ayatanas
Sabotaged by Concept



Hot, crowded, discursive intensity
Forces jump to awake
Like escape from rush-hour subway car
Like fan starting up in July hot muggy
Like hand pulling back from a stove
Whaddaya know about that!

–Joe Priestly
Boston, MA

the gift

here, take this
I’ve been keeping it warm for a long,
long time — now, I’d like each of you
to have a piece of it

hold it with both hands
watch out for the dripping blood —
it stains the living hell
out of these white shirts

–Jeff Fink
Park City, Utah
