DEATH OF NAPOLEON by John Grey

Forlorn figure,

wasted away in the madhouse,

for the first time in that place,

none of the Napoleons were him.

Martha Stewart Downsizes: Notes Found on a Trailer Home Ad by Jonathan Brandt

It was on COPS. Twice.

Neighbor’s porn server does trades.

PLUS—he’s a deaf mute.

TROLL CITY by Kristine Ong Muslim

Learned to love the light

It quiets down to listen

To its own story.

The goats once found it

Restless and eternally hungry

Under the bridge.

It could have a history of its own

If it would only stop preying

And confess the mysteries of its world.

Its jaws clamped shut

Its eyes vigilant and proud

It goes home under the bridge.
