  1. Poetry Pinelands bushes Reclusive lowland hearties Pink blossoms, Dark cranberries, punches to the tongue Laying low and heavy in the scratch. Come men with sticks Beating old maid fruit from Chaparral’s maternal clutch White sands cluttered with rootless exiles Each berry pitted with a hidden puff of air. The berry’s latent lightness Caged greatness waiting to rise Waiting upon mild craft, On husbanding attention, On weight, pressure, moments made. The men flood the bog Crash of water, The broken bob a-twitch From their momentary sea-bed Holy Ghost buoyant Pulled sky tall Rupturing the win

  10. Can't seem to disturb the universe.

  11. Dear Sarah, One: Postcards From Your Flesh and Blood You, my older sister, were born dead. Tiny, blue, and cold. No warning, no reason. A year later, to universal relief and joy, I came, kicking and screaming. The medical chart for Baby Boy Bond noted, “conjoined supernumerary spiritual appendage”.

Doctors often misdiagnose a heart murmur, because they hear through the stethoscope both my loud lub-dub, and a little echo trailing after. You and I, my sister Sarah, share one life, I the broad pan
