Julia Drescher's Birds of Paradise

Out of Print


Was hewn some

‘Unnatural’ being

Hues blended

Doubtfully begun

& ended the gun

was idle I was

too astonished

to shoot

Julia Cohen's 1 + Scattered=Zero

Out of Print

Cover and inside art by Larry Lorca.


Everyone I Knew In High School Is Dead

The egg fell onto the flashlight’s head,
a sound colder than outer space. When you
have an accident with an already-dead object
I can’t finish my sentence. I swung a stomach
I wished for one of those strangle bracelets
Grades melted under the radiator like
a doll on behalf of itself. The itch
of washer-dryer tags. We rejected
blood clots, are we tidal waves in the library
I card cataloged you until I could forget
& then find you again in the index
My leaking house, come back out
of the cake basement

and I would open by Jill Stengel

having lost
train of thought

train wreck
airbus crash into water

one, two
twenty-three skidoo

A flies twice weekly

force away thoughts
build little houses of brick
huff-puff wolves, stay out
