There are two constants in the poetry of John Mannone: love and science… And they are intertwined--his poems flow effortlessly between poles of desire and precious, precise knowledge. In the world of poetry there is no one who can mine science for metaphor the way Mannone does. Nor move to love so naturally.
--Roald Hoffmann, chemist and writer, professor emeritus at Cornell University and co-recipient of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

The New Man by Digby Beaumont

Woken by noises on his first night at Mrs Enright-Dixon's Boarding House, Otis Hibbert crept downstairs to investigate.

Stepping inside the breakfast room, he found Mrs Enright-Dixon spread-eagled on the buffet table in lace nightdress, while Mr Stubbs from room 12 stood over her, pyjama bottoms bunched around his ankles.

"Oh, Mr Hibbert," she said, her hand flying to her hot cheek. "You must think me a terrible flirt."

Offering by Maggie Garvey

It burned her skin as she opened the oven door. Kate reached in and scooped the pie into the big glove.

A wave of heat filled her face; the sharp sting of pain on her breast felt almost good.

Kate leaned over the pie, and cradled the dog tags in the big glove.

She breathed in the apple comfort for her torn heart.

The Man in the Wet, Gray Fedora by Jim Parks

Old news.
I didn't understand why they had taken the rotating seats off the uprights at the lunch counters and when I asked my mother about it, people laughed and smirked, so she reacted enough to make her freckles turn colors and nearly jerked my arm out of its shoulder socket, tripping across those highly polished floor tiles as fast as her short little legs would go.

When asked again, she jerked even harder, glaring at some drugstore cowboy that was winking at her, and said "Ask that old boy there. I am sure the lazy-headed outfit has time to explain it all to you." It was one of my first glimpses at the face of hatred. The old boy-s face just froze under his ducktail haircut ...

The Boy by Yvette Managan

Lilly impatiently buttons her coat while Presley wraps the new baby in a blanket and lays her in the carriage. They watch Mickey as he flies down the stairs. Smokey, his coonhound, trails after him. Lilly opens the front door and Mickey sails past her, sliding on the new ice forming on the sidewalk. He stretches his left leg forward, turns sideways, extends his arm and bends his knees, getting as much speed from the thin covering of ice as possible.

"Stop that, Michael, or you-ll slip and fall and mess your suit!" Lilly scolds. ...It is raining. The thin icy spots on the walkways melt. Inside, parishioners sing carols; candlelight flickers over the pages of the hymnals making the words dance.

"Yes Mother," Mickey replies, bending his knees a little more.


Quislings by Lauran Strait

"There, there, poor babies." Elizabeth pats the side of the red Playmate cooler

as she stares inside. "Such little ones this time." She fishes out the last of the doves from their bed of dry ice. "What-s the world coming to? Broken wings and plucked feathers. Have they no decency?
