JULIA KOLCHINSKY DASBACH
I hear the baby cry even before / she knows need. I hear her / behind my eyes, she's / beautiful, everyone says, it's / the eyes, yours, giant almonds / swirling hazel, churning / deep in the primitive part / of the skull, the brain's / medial-temporal lobe / where neurons multiply.

MYRONN HARDY
In a field of asters I find you in blue. / You are watching something fly something predatory. / The sky is some version of violet / like the asters. That symmetry haunts.  It’s a well into the well I don’t see / but know is there. The water beneath / us in us in the asters in the sky.
