*from /[Husband]/*

for k.

now, wife, get in your little boat and row


and row                                                            away


into sleep


remember the tales insist upon including a ghost and a body of water

but since they are a mere translation we don't know what they insist upon



I want and want

            and this

wanting is a trap


/if you tried and failed in your mission the honor/

/            /little one

/ /

/to which japan declines any response other than silence/

/ /

so that, every gesture

            was calculated with longing

/ /

/the integrity of this body is beyond doubt/

/ /

we never believed for a moment that you were or could be guilty

*Jennifer Bartlett*

                    *Mothers must always prove their readiness*

                    Most missing girls are dead girls. The lady
                    detective. Relevant short stories. Caught in the
                    throat. Set in the plains. Tea in Wyoming.
                    Everything else is a flash back. Bruises.
                    Wristsarms. Collect an advance. Seize. Elbow. Your
                    health insurance will remain on paper. The envelope
                    was a breath of air. An exhale. It was both. Small
                    pings. Wing flutters.

                    *Sarah Mangold*


*Peer Counseling*

Your Mommy issues

and my Daddy issues

should get together and spoon
