Portrait of My Brother in Zheng Guanying’s Family House

Chestnut waves,
a face of English skin
and 12 o’clock shadow…

A rising voice in contemporary poetry, Nick Compton’s bold yet unassuming writing style offers a refreshing entrée into the genre. His poem, Portrait of My Brother in Zheng Guanying’s Family House, reflects this refreshing voice in a handful of powerful stanzas.

Gender roles are based on norms, or standards, and are created by society. Masculine roles are usually associated with strength, aggression, and dominance, while feminine roles are associated with passivity, nurturing, and subordination. How much do real people correspond to such idealized stereotypes? Andrew Norris provides us with a stimulating response in his art.

My Brother’s Keeper

My brother gave ten thousand dollars
away in a bar, rewarding strangers
who spun hard-luck stories on the spot.
He gave his heart to single mothers,
gambled his pay on two leaky boats…

A Portrait of the Artist

Beautiful

Durwayne’s hands are beautiful. Black like a burnt
book. Black from chemo. Edges brown and charred.
Calloused and splintered, still strong at the seams…

Loneliness

I
prefer to dress
in black.
I’m always lurking–
even in groups…
