Our hearts go out to poet
Hillary Keel, life-loving
friend and wordsmith.

Her poems in the upcoming
Live Mag! #19, and
in Live Mag! #10

the light is silver, the leaves, some still
golden, people between lunch and their
afternoon coffee, knowing the linear
trajectory in golden and silver,
the brisk air and curve of tires,
an opalescence, knowing
I am here.

From "Faculty Meeting..." by Hillary Keel

“holy days” the simple man proclaims,
the shapeless wanderer
not simple only, he is open

this allows the world to look
into his eyes, to see
a depth there, like a hole in space

From "A Reconsideration" by Jerome Rothenberg
