Congrats to Lorraine Curran-Vu on her recent publication!

Congratulations to Lorraine Curran-Vu for publication of her poem, Interloper,  in the online literary magazine, INVICTUS A Spark In The Dark.

Partially re-printed here, however, for her full text and cunning conclusion, please visit the original publication website:

Here you are again.
All too familiar to me

Not on cat‘s paws,
But rather on lion‘s claws
Digging into me, not letting go…

WHERE IS MY BROTHER? by Daniela Agostini

The hostility is so thick

I can’t breathe


I remember the time

we fought

side by side

in the civil war

to abolish slavery

white man, black man

brother beside brother

you died in my arms

Where has that time gone?


Today I cry:

Please, Please I can’t breathe

the brother that once held me

today, holds me in a choke hold

Mama, I cry

I can’t breathe

Where is my brother?
