“Action!” by Shirley Ballard

the satisfaction

of the positive action

is not an easy thing…

experiencing a day

of sun, clear skies

a good phone call

to or from

is almost as

fulfilling as

as a groovy

love tryst

“AMERICAN PLAYHOUSE” by Ty Granderson Jones

A TRAGEDY IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE
OF TREASONABLE DOUBT.
TIS’ THE FINAL CURTAIN….
THIS PLAY OF SURREAL
STRIFE.
O.J.’S LIFE.
THE WIND
OF THE END
WILL BLOW
ORENTHAL OTHELLO,
SAY IT AIN’T SO—
THIS STAGE
OF NICOLE’S PAGE.
OH! DESDAMONA
THERE’S NO ENCORE
FOR YOUR SPIRIT SOARING SOUL.
A LOST DREAM
OF A MURDER SCENE.
IT’S
AMERICAN PLAYHOUSE.
