Submissions via e-mail:




Normally a kind woman,
her face now twisted red 
with vein-popping rage, she sent 
the rule-breaking boy to the corner.

And followed him there
giving her lengthy worst 
to shame him. And he took it, 
head down till she was done.

But when she turned her back
and walked away, he looked 
up as if seeing a heaven
denied the rest of us

and silently mouthed one word
again and again, soothing 
and blessing the angered air:
"Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!"



Laszlo Slomovits, Ann Arbor, Michigan
