- "Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard." Anne Sexton Heather Brager is a critically acclaimed juggler of calamity, an accomplished procrastinator, and shuffler of idioms. Her poetry and drawings can be found in various digital and print journals around the globe, and on the web. She currently resides in New England and prefers the precipice of where the Atlantic meets the sand to the official looking office where she spends most of her time.

this too shall pass.
their words are deficient, quickly undressed
filling green bottles with semantics
they tidy the room, sighing with triviality
the sky outside is sagging impending fall
as they throw stones, pressing on
they wear the cold armor of disquiet
impetus is an unsympathetic revolver
as scrutiny merges with notarized papers
they ignore heavy steps behind the front door
