Lemon Squeeze II by Wolf Kahn, oil on canvas

Melissa Hager
after “Lemon Squeeze II” by Wolf Kahn

Faced foe in daily battle,
the other side threatens
certain dominion. Depending

lemon zest or inky
depths. Constant stream
of advice, counsel, divides
euphoria from the dark.
Victory belongs to no one.
