Cyphers Magazine


Publishing poetry, prose and art since 1975


by Leland Bardwell

I am locked in this acropolis
just Feodor and me
I rub my fingers
in his overcoat of stone
gambling my airline ticket
and find in the valley
of my life-line
the gravel of Baden Baden


2022 is Leland Bardwell’s centenary year. Her complete poems will be published this year and a new book from Lepus Print celebrates her talent.  She was a founding editor of Cyphers.
