Feel like I've been floundering for a while now, without anything to latch onto, Jennifer wrote in her journal. She sat in the secretary's office staring at the wall, relaxing her eyes so that only the Prozac clock stood out in her vision, with its female face angling toward a perennially shining sun. She wondered if she should take Prozac so that she too could bask in its glow. Perhaps then she would not feel so dejected that her freelance writing career was not going anywhere.

Set old sailors in wooden
Wheelchairs right at the water's edge.

Scott Fountain
by Doug Tanoury
There is a renaissance fountain
Of white Italian marble
In a city park. On occasion
I still go there, for it holds
The magic of my childhood.
