Security Breach (Micah Caswell-Baton Rouge, LA)


The hardness cracked
Shards of ice, glass, stone—
Whatever had encased that pulsing piece of me—
Rushed from the center
They scattered in all directions
Toward the surface
One touch had done this
Now sharp peaks were erupting—
Piercing the surface of my body from the inside
As each of these daggers—
Which I had molded myself—
Freed itself from the prison within me
Warmth burst from the gaps
Left in my skin
Not just warmth, but warm liquid
Liquid that trickled and out
Down surfaces, no longer smooth, but broken
These red rivers that wished to escape the confines of my body
Served as a reason, an excuse, an invitation
For lips and tongue to further explore
These explorations more thrilling than the touch
The rhythm quickened inside
It beat with more intensity
It became quicker, and quicker still
Until I thought there to be no choice
I had to stop this
My body could handle no more
And then
I was thrown into ecstasy
Body and all
The eyes that were married to the smiling lips and resting tongue
Looked down at my spasming body
I had been freed

Legacy of the Future (Ted Richard-Church Point, LA)

One day, a very large owl appeared in my dream. Its rainbow colored feathers showed Only the wealth of wisdom that had been Amassed throughout its lifetime.
And then it spoke to me “Legacy of the Future” And then flew away.
It’s strange to me how a dream can be So distant yet so relative, So blurry, yet so vivid; So imaginative, yet so real.

I spent many of the next years Wandering and wondering. Wandering through my childhood, Wondering where life would take me. Wandering through my adolescence, Wondering which path to choose. And wandering in my young adulthood Wondering if the choices I made would ever mean something.
And then I remembered the dream. “Legacy of the Future” And I knew exactly what the owl meant.
From that day forward, Each day I dwell on each moment As a way to become the person I envision myself to be: Honest, Strong and Proud. I am honest about my successes and honest about my failures. My failures become opportunities, and leads to more focused direction. I am s…

When I Look into the Rainbow I See (Bisquita Stevens-Broussard, LA)

When I look into the rainbow I see
Blues like the sky and greens like grass to grow.

When I look into the rainbow I see
Yellows like the sun that gives me the Vitamins that my skin needs. When I look in the rainbow I see
Purples and oranges that make flowers look so Vibrant into my eyes. When I look into the rainbow I see
Red that stands for hate the same hate that is why a lot of us can't marry the person that we love with all our of heart. Isn't red supposed to mean love? Red hate, just because I love someone in my own sex.
I also see hate in my own Gay community. Who cares If I can't wear the Latest fashion because of money that I don't have? It should be what is in my heart. Stop the hate and stand together as one.

Superman (Jennifer Chehardy-Lafayette, LA)

I thought you were Superman. Taking off Brave. No gear. No fear. Kryptonite? Pffft!  Muah! So you thought. But discovered When you landed, there lie your krypto. The green glowing rock of  The familiar, routine, ordinary. What next? Another flight. But how? After you've worn the cape. Es-cape. Leave the cape. Only to discover you are Clark Kent. And he is Superman. Maybe not in flight but in person. Be that person With or without the cape. The story still ends the same. Get the girl. Know your weakness. Always a hero Just sometimes in a different place. When you were flying I said Who is that? A bird? A plane? When you landed I saw you really were Superman.
