War GamesA little boy witha big red ball
Will someday soon lose it all.
For war is a game, or so we like to portray,
And someday this boy will want to play.
He will grow up one day, leave his toys behind.
He will go off to war and immediately find
War is not fun, it is chaos and death.
First, a wound to his chest. Next, his final breath.
The CrowThe Crow
Joseph McCollum was in his way home from the art studio in Chicago where he worked. As he drove down the road he began to smell smoke in the air. At first he dismissed it as someone burning leaves or other yard waste, but when he noticed several fire trucks, ambulances, and police cars racing down the street behind him, he knew, as anyone else would, that something had gone wrong. Unlike anyone else though, he had the powers to help.
Joseph pulled the car over and shut it off. After the rescue vehicles passed he reached into his back seat a grabbed a black garbage bag that was sitting there.

bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
