Silent Movie: Waking Still Dreaming
2am: I wake and know
James Robert Rudolph
James Robert Rudolph is a retired psychologist and teacher having returned to old haunts in northern New Mexico after a busy career in Minneapolis. He is attempting a resurrection of poetry and playwriting interests and finds Santa Fe a rich, if not always willing, muse. Creatively he aspires to the crafting of work that expresses honest experience in beautiful language, complex or simple, as serves the work’s purpose. Recent poems have appeared in The Artistic Muse, Mad Swirl, and Bewildering Stories, among others.

Built to Last
Cast from stony ground and
Hardly there but everywhere
So on a clear-water sloop
Going Home to New Mexico
Soft walking woman
Blown volcanoes circle
I am returned to red ant,
The March to Water
Up ahead, limned dimly
Yes, it’s the sea, the blue sea,
Steadying gaze and step,
