"Touchy"

Artwork by Dan Williams





NOT ALONE

ALONE



Outside we open to nature
a gnome or gene
that inhabits
every hideout of history
of a votary's vacation
casts an aura
trading in our silence
hoping what we compose
in art,music or word
will withstand
annihilation
over a pallid cosmos
at our refractions
of our intellect
will live a century beyond
like ancient Virgil or Dante
not just a glow briefly
like a worm
with a luminous secret
outside of time's absence
yet we are warmed
by a smooth jazz violin
in a furious passage
on a now sober bridge
sleeping off
a late-night wine
closing in
from the last seat
in the front row
of a bad day dream,
or finding mushrooms
from a far country
with a lost spoon
of your lips
is no match
for the grinning poet
Michaux surviving
with egocentric words
in red ink surrealism
on the margins of an intro.


BZ Niditch

A Clarification:

A while back there was some confusion about who we are:

We are Epiphany - epiphmag.com
An Unpretentious Publication
Where Creativity and Inspiration Evolve!

We are not:

"Epiphany A Literary Journal"
.
