Nuclear Winter
In my bitterness I find solace. It is cold and I fear I will not ever be warmed again. I have wandered in this ash for what I assume has been years: my hair has grown longer, my clothing is torn, ragged, too small. I am weak and I am numb. The ash blots out the sky. There is no light, only the whirring swirls of debris. I blink against the dust to no avail-- it enters my eyes and dries them. I must keep them open regardless. The vast expanse of dimmed powder presses at every inch and every particle. I look up, at the incomprehensible patterns drawn in the air, and recognize the darkness. It is the darkness of the night, from before the bombs went to the sky and destroyed all that had been created. It is of the night when we had our hats, our hands, our nerves were not shot, our blood steadily pulsed through our veins. Now I have only a retching cough of a beat, and it stutters out the name that was painted on the side of every missile. I recognize this darkness, and at the sight of it,

Ein Leben ohne Liebe
Ein Leben ohne Liebe
Was ist ein Leben ohne Liebe wert?
Ich frage mich oft, kann ein Mensch
der nie in seinen Leben geliebt hat,
von sich behaupten ein glückliches Leben
geführt zu haben?
Es gibt Menschen, die haben Millionen auf dem Konto.
Sie können sich Alles leisten was ihr Herz begehrt.
Doch ihr Herz ist kalt und leer weil keine Liebe in ihm ist.
Glaubst du, dass es glückliche Menschen sind?
Ich selber besitze keine Millionen,
bin eher reich an Schulden.
Aber ich fühle mich trotzdem nicht arm,
weil mein Herz reich an Liebe ist.
Für mich ist Liebe das höchste Gut
was ich haben kann im Leben.
Denn für mich ist ein Leben ohne Liebe nicht lebenswert!

sometimes, i just think
in melodies and every
sad song sounds like you.

"Beloved" by Erishkiegal
the imagery, cadence and verbiage of this piece
are simply elegant. indulgent and giving, sweet and
sweetly savage all tied up in one sultry little package.

Literature
Out the window
I look upon an empty road where concrete rolls
in dry spools of gray.
Wires criss-cross like spilt vermicelli hung in air.
Cats prowl in narrows, dust rises, and the day
smells like a grave - blank, supine, where one by one
all voices die.

Tranen
Ze kruipen
Ze sluipen
Ze stromen
Van geluk
Of van verdriet
Maar vergelijk ze niet
Met de tranen die ik voor jou vergiet

“Drawn Together” by Itchitaka
"Dreary specters silently perform
their dismal waltz across the somber scene"
is my favorite line from "Drawn Together" by Itchitaka.
With Halloween around the corner, I can
vividly see the ghosts waltzing around
the Palace. Itchitaka explains that
this poem is "Acrostic: "A poem or series
of lines in which certain letters, usually
the first in each line, form a name, motto,
or message when read in sequence." So give
it a read and discover the message.

Poetry Critiquing Contest: Winners!
Many thanks to those who entered the Poetry Critiquing Contest!
Apologies for the delay on announcing the winners. I've received plenty of entries and I didn't realize how tedious it could get reading all the poems and the critiques for them! Regardless, it was a joy to see so many quality critiques coming in and it was difficult choosing who to place.
Without further ado, here are the winners:
3rd Place:

What I liked about Scott's critiques was his warmth and sincerity, easing the recipient in with positive aspects of the poem before digging into the weaknesses.

Dearest detectives, here are your clues. May you enjoy your hunt and act upon your cues.

Clue 1: Two days ago a lady with a 3 posted a lovely feature article for PC. Spread the love and use clue two to set your search ablaze.
Clue 2: Sometimes they say the best is saved for last. Follow the leader and give a tribute with meaning.
Clue 3: Ride on and press your limits to the max. Leave a tribute with the dewy heart.
Clue 4: Rush into the simple life.
Clue 5: Look close at what the artist says and follow the whisper to a place where love is shown in both color and black-and-white. Leave a tribute before continuing your hunt.
Clue 6: Nights are lit up by stars so follow a star like the true North and skip across galaxies.
Clue 7: Don't let things end in a tragedy and stay for tea, for now your journey has come to an end after your tribute is left.

Updates!
Hint for clue 1: Project Comment fiyt.
Hint for clue 2: The last deviation featured.
Hints for the rest of the last clues revolve around the comment.

Three spots are left! Winners will be posted Thursday night.
