Untitled (#2) by Dan Lenart (read at magazine release event @ Central Library on April 17th)

I glanced over at my awards and trophies
previously brightly varnished now tarnished from lack of polishing
as I munched asparagus while watching Spartacus on DVD

Faded glory and splendour
slaves to the slaughter
no home but Rome

DEATH IS FREEDOM TO A SLAVE

Painful memories are an affliction
reliving them over and over again, an addiction

We all need to be liberated from our past
like removing a cast
The hope of joy
playing with a new toy
lighten up and jump!
