World without end by Ingrid Wilson

World without end
by Ingrid Wilson
[author’s site]

There was a cabinet 
containing skittles
lined up on a chequerboard 
in the museum
when I was young
and two walls of the cabinet
were mirrors
so it looked as if 
the skittles stretched out to eternity 
and whose to say
they didn’t? 
At least as far as the eye could see
they multiplied and filled the plane.

Divide zero by zero
and you get an error.
There are some things we can’t compute.
Some knowledge is not of the brain but of the heart
it is not learned but forgotten.
We forget, and instead
learn only how
to run.

ABOUT US 

Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.

MasticadoresUSA was founded by Juan Re Crivello as part of Gobblers/Masticadores in 2021. Its current editor is Gabriela Marie Milton.

MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.

What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor. 

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES 

If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to gabrielamariemilton@gmail.com. In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces.  We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.

What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!

However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.

Looking forward to your submissions.

    This lovely poem flows by with precision; I love the image of the opening line down to the wistful end run.

    Well, isn’t that the truth. The trick is to figure out there’s something you need to remember, and then figure out how to remember it. Life, it’s such a journey. Very nice work! 🌷
