A Literary Journal Featuring Poetry, Fiction and Nonfiction by Talented Writers Around the Globe

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

There is a gun on my forehead

Divya Sachdeva

a violent cannula 
placed to suck my beliefs
from the orifice.
But they crawl in my blood
inside the blueberries of my neutrophils
and cannot be winnowed
with this simple,  life thawing device

But if you bring a stack of thoughts,
recycled papers 
we can play origami 
cutting and folding

      beliefs
to make a bird 
with wings that will carve the sky 
and a tail to control the flight
