Excerpt ˇ


Truncated thoughts make way for daylight

create space for afternoon meanderings

are we doomed to watch and wait days

people walk and drive past

as we sit cloistered in half-language

imagining walls spill secrets to anxious limbs

spring breezes tuck in tight to eaves

remind us of the speaking world.

—Megan Kaminski
