AMAZE
S.P. Flannery
 
Borshch

Peeled beets
bleed the color
of hard labor in fields,
factories, and houses hand-built
by need.

originally published in Plum Ruby Review

Primate Exhibit

Children
jockey to glimpse
golden blurs amongst trees
and Amazon skies painted on
caged walls.

originally published in Free Verse
