A literary journal featuring poetry, fiction and nonfiction by writers around the globe. 

Aphonic

by Carl Scharwath

She is the lament
of the voiceless

consuming silence
onto parchment

into the psyche,
histories skirmish

chains of the enslaved
loosen their duress

to her words–
we together manipulate

the pendulum
to rebuild our most treasured

commodity-
hope.
