Grafiti
by Kevin Ward

A Token Observation grafiti on a wall ALL INDIANS HAVE AIDS it says funny thing is itís scrawled across a mural of Vancouver lying at the foot of the coastal mountains an idylic depiction it is no suburban sprawl creeping up the mountains like an infectious lesion which the earth-minded know is rendering the planetís immune system deficient ironic then that this grafiti gets it so wrong whatís more the muralist is covering up the racist slur with various hues yet below the surface there it still lies simmering

Whatís in a name
by Janet Marie Rogers

Whatís your favorite drug? What numbs your pain Give it a name Is it Mary-Jane Or C-C-Cocaine Maybe sex is your game Playing house all the time Makes you feel ? ne Endorphin elixir Ya-baby! Thatís the cure Are you addicted To drama and chaos? Is the devil your boss No boundaries to cross Till BANG! Itís all lost Do you want to be well? Or stay in your hell? Your lifestyle will tell If your soul is ready to sell Do you want change? To walk a new road Get back whatís been sold Move from black, to gold? Are you ready? Öfor love
