Current Events by Betina Monteiro

Sometimes I wish my country
Was in a military dictatorship again
So then I could
Call my spontaneous migration
For its right name
Exile

But what a selfish cunt
That makes out of me
Wanting to be praised
By my foresight
Want to be listened to

Why do I keep having this feeling
That the only way to be welcomed
Is if I tell you
I’m running away from something
When the truth is I never had anywhere to go back to
What language do you speak in when you speak of love?
What language do you speak in when you speak to your mother?

Are they the same?

What is home if not a collection of sad memories of places I don’t visit anymore
What is love that doesn’t hurt?
What is memory?

Can you remember a day when you didn’t feel alone?

I see the ruin of everything I left behind
On the news
My friends are powerless
Decaying into apathy
My parents are old
And will probably
Overwork themselves to death
Or disease
Or violence
Whichever comes first to collect the debt

And I’m a bad daughter
Because who am I
If not just
Mistakes and disappointment
How can I expect
That speaking the truth
Might ever accomplish
Something
It seems like I have never learned anything in this life really
And look to where the lies could take you

But I can’t even handle
To face my mother in the mirror
When she asks me
What am I doing here

I am so scared

Insult Sonnet #1 by Ryan Kelly

With the author’s compliments to Mr. Donald Drumpf, who inspired most, if not all of the following.

To even think the sh*t you choose to say—
You’re monstrous, you’re despicable, you’re heinous.
Your insipid drivel stings my ears the way
A spicy meal and time will scald my anus.

The lies you swill will curdle and congeal
Until your brain is plugged with bloody clots,
And then your rotten, spongy corpse will
Devalue nearby cemetery plots.

If someone smeared a petri dish across
The unwashed armpit of society,
The fungus that would grow would be like you—
An unfair challenge to sobriety.

You must surely realize you are, alas,
The frothy discharge of creation’s ass.

Three Poems for Orlando by Lexie Helgerson
I.
There are many birds today
They’re all in a way
Because they heard the news
from Florida.

II.
Paralyzed, stilted
I run my finger over dust
We must take action
Action, we must.
III.
Quietly we sit
There is nothing to say
In Florida there were gunshots.
