the sum of the very coffee,
invective cold

the scrape of days take winterlude
from muddy water

to bare bone

how every curse at the bus stop
a silver shadow

a forced migration turns dyspeptic

my mutton heart arrows
a hangover of trees

days of cholera & new york magazine

home a figure for mixed meanings

we wound by how

we name
