  • ''I could say the world is ending tomorrow, and no one would care. I could say the world will go forever, and no one would care. I could write words, words, words of hope, of love, of humanity, of peace, of pain and the world will still spin to unchanged tomorrows. The human heart balled up as a fist, just grows old clenching to life, to pride and ego, it won't let go. But the words slip through, as the last pump of blood to a lost web of veins.''

Best Poem of Anthony Liccione

Moving

These wheels keep turning,
half a tank of gas now,
running from captivity
and into free,
dominate roads.
Passing the black and
white dogs scavenging
through garbage cans,
fifty dollars
won't get me far.
But I keep moving
an unknown direction,
hoping the years
will save me,
expecting time will
catch me.
As it never does,
and never will.

Something Desperate

i pluck an apple
from a giving tree

and toss it up
high it spins and twirls,

as crows swarm around
with their awful wings
