Charlene James-Duguid’s most recent poems to appear here were three poems published in August 2017.

No drama in life
Unless you eat endlessly
Acid persimmons.

Walking Wounded tramp
Through life’s forest Yeti-like
Thrilled they have survived.

When fragile larkspur
Bloom, they like where they’re planted.
Do the same for friends.

Fix what you can fix.
Weave with joy a spider’s web.
Call it Private Fate.

Pretend yours is an
Antic Spirit overfilled,
Breaking all records.

When horror strikes you
In your bad dreams, try this trick.
Escape! Walk backward.
