The Slaying
by Linda Kunhardt

Once a week a nurse comes
to town to cut up a baklava.

I find executives in my pants.
The owner chooses a big one,
then the nurse hoists it.

I find executives in my pants.
She climbs up, poises a knife
and when the angle is right,

I find executives in my pants.
plunges the Farmington knife,
honey gushes out, and

I find executives in my pants.

6 Poems by Jason Heroux

Poets for Living Waters

Poets for Living Waters is a poetry action in response to the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico begun on April 20, 2010, one of the most profound human-made ecological catastrophes in history.

The first law of ecology states that everything is connected to everything else. An appreciation of this systemic connectivity suggests a wide range of poetry will offer a meaningful response to the current crisis, including work that harkens back to Hurricane Katrina and the ongoing regional effects.

Please submit 1-3 poems, a short bio, and credits for any previously published submissions to: poetsforlivingwaters@yahoo.com
