Poem of the Week:

Dear Shannon, 

By Allyson Jeffredo

We’re surrounded by phantoms,

forming and dissolving around corners

and in the sun’s beams and reflection

off the crisp surface of the lake.

We feel them, see them in pink sweaters

grasping their dog leashes and we pay

them no mind. A brief smile, maybe,

eyes down to the ground, sometimes a hello

or I’m sorry and forget, immediate like steps,

they also have lives—like yours filled with

pain and tired days from fibromyalgia

letting the breeze run its fingers across

your sensitive skin, the sun warms your

muscles a bit. We run into each other,

an array of pulling dogs like trying to keep

planets from a star, but we do it

and find each other later when you

give color to offset the usually dull paper

The Reverberations of Quiet

By Allyson Jeffredo

we’re playing with the baby when my grandma calls

to say her neighbor’s been taken in the ambulance

con las luces apagadas, the lavender haze of dusk coats

its white and red body as it creeps down Cairo St. At 85,

she would think the ambulance’s strict silence meant death

after her other neighbor passed from pneumonia

the night before, death struts through the neighborhood

with his voice low—west to east, the same sidewalk

we stepped from the corner store each month after cashing

my grandpa’s social security checks—over the phone’s static,

she thinks the baby is yelling, but the baby’s now really laughing

thinking my qué tristes aimed at my grandma are spoken to her

as she’s learning how to be a person & my grandma’s half-forgot

Only One

By Daiana Rodriguez 

You’re in a wedding dress

white dusted in time the


color in the frame

potted flowers

line the hall

tainted in the same dullness

tinting your expression.           All the other

pictures of a wedding day


to the disappearing act of a single



Hair limps around slim

shoulders, veil unfluffed

a disappointed aura.    I forget

who told you to take the picture, for memories

but the scowl on your face tells

this day is not

the one you wanted

to frame with a mantle.

You kept it

anyway, instead

of the dress with the ringed burn

on the corner of your train.


Did you try to press it with a flame

because it        reminded you

of what was lost? Not

pictures before alters,

or the exchanging of the vows,

I mean the future you coffined

into ground that winter

when your newborn grandchildren lost

a grand father. I’ll never know


the girl standing in that dress, just

like I’ll never meet the man

who was never part of my picture.
